What is the WPA?
WPA stands for “Western Psychological Association”
It is a conference held every April (2011: April 28th-
May 1st at the Wilshire Grand Hotel)
The location changes every year.
WPA 2011 is in Los Angeles, California
WPA 2010 was in Cancun, Mexico
WPA 2009 was in Portland, Oregon
WPA 2008 was in Irvine, California
WPA 2007 was in Vancouver, BC, Canada
Why was the WPA created?
The Western Psychological Association was
founded in 1921 for the purpose of stimulating the
exchange of scientific and professional ideas and,
in so doing to enhance interest in the processes of
research and scholarship in the behavioral
sciences. Membership in the Western
Psychological Association is open to both students
and professionals who wish to support these goals
and who would like to be a part of the network that
we have created to further them.
Why Should I go to the WPA?
If you are interested in Psychology, there will be a
session for you! Attending a conference can expose
you to what the field of Psychology has to offer.
Influential Psychologists attend and present at the
WPA. Last year the big name Psychologist was Dr.
Philip Zimbardo (Mr. Psychology).
Dr. Mio is the WPA President this year!
Start networking now for graduate school.

Student registration for the conference is $35 for
members. ($65 total)
Nonmember registration for the conference is $75.
After March 15th, you must register on-site, and it
will be an additional $15 in all categories.
What to expect
There is no formal dress code. However, all students are expected
to dress professionally.
Although some activities are listed as “invited”, they are open to everyone.
Invited means that the speakers for those sessions were invited to speak
rather than having submitted their research like everyone else.
What to expect cont.
Everyone receives a conference program of all of the
presentations and poster sessions.
We will also be creating a list just for our members of all of
the professors and students who will be presenting at WPA
This is a great way to show your support for fellow Psi Chi members and
This is also a great way to see what kind of research your professors are
doing and perhaps become interested enough to join their research labs
when positions are available.
