                   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)

    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.

      your professors.

      when positions are available.
