SWPA Membership and Convention Registration
Beginning in 2016 SWPA began charging one fee for both membership and convention registration. That fee depends on membership category (Professional, Student) and when you pay (Early-Bird, Regular, On-Site).
Any person who by virtue of employment, education, and/or professional interests identifies with the discipline of psychology is eligible for membership and to attend the conference.
All members receive the SWPA e-newsletter and occasional other correspondence from the Executive Committee. Members may also place announcements (non-profit) in the SWPA e-newsletter and on the SWPA website free of charge.
