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.
