SWPA does not have separate registration and dues. Rather, we combine both fees. If you register for the convention then you automatically become a member. There are three categories:
- Professional Member
- Student Member
SWPA offers abstract submissions for talks, posters, symposia, and workshops. We also have student research competitions. Additionally, the convention hosts four affiliate organizations: SAMR, SWToP, Psi Chi, and SCBNA.
Hotel and Trip Information
This year SWPA will utilize three separate hotels, each offering excellent rates. The hotels are:
- Hotel Albuquerque
- Hotel Chaco
- Best Western - Rio Grande Inn
When you are not spending time at the conference, be sure to take advantage of all Albuquerque has to offer!
