LGBT and Ally Wedding!!!
We are planning a group wedding at the 2009 APA
Convention. Because it is in Toronto (Yes, that's
Canada), marriage is legal for same-sex couples as well as
opposite-sex couples. For more information on being in
the wedding, attending the festivities, or donating to the
cause, please click here.
During convention this year, we
will celebrate our official name change of our section to
now include our transgender kin.
This name change has been a long time coming and we would
like to visually celebrate it by having eye catching buttons
for our section, new section materials with a new logo.
Here's how you come in...the board is requesting submissions
for section logos be submitted to us, a contest...by March
31, 2009. Our board meets the first week in April and will
choose one of the logos submitted to be used on our section
materials. If you are interested in designing a new logo for
our section, please send your creative genius to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org by 3/31/2009 so that the board
can make a decision in time to roll out buttons and
materials with our new and improved name :)

Programming this year will be excellent. Shana Hamilton,
programming chair, has worked hard on putting together a
fantastic collection of offerings for our section. Several
of our programs are designed to complement the presidential
initiative of Dr. Helms, Taking Action Against Racism.
Additionally, Theo Burnes, who is chairing the supervision
and training area of our strategic plan has taken the lead
on planning a mentoring breakfast for the section this year.
Plan to join us in Toronto if you can...you won't be sorry.
