2017 June Announcements

Here are the June Announcements!


The 2017 APA Annual Conference is just around the corner!


It is almost July, and APA 2017 in Washington, DC is just a few short weeks away. If you haven’t done so already, make your hotel and travel plans, today! And at APA, please make time to attend SCP events. Here are some of the highlights to include in your schedule:


  • the Leona Tyler Award address Thursday (1:00 – 1:50 pm, EDT, 103B, CC) will be given by this year’s recipient, Sandy Shullman;
  • the SCP Fellows addresses are on Friday from 4:00 – 4:50 pm, EDT, 146A, CC);
  • the Presidential Address  (2:00 – 2:50 pm, EDT) and business meeting (3:00 – 3:50 pm, EDT, Salon 5, Marriott Marquis) on Saturday;
  • our two official social hours on Thursday (5:00 – 5:50 pm, EDT, Salon 5, Marriott Marquis) and Saturday (4:00 – 5:50 pm, EDT, Salon 5, Marriott Marquis).
  • And the Best in Practice/Best in Science Addresses on Saturday (11:00 – 11:50 am, 208, CC)


These are the MUST-SEE SCP events, those precious times in which we honor our award recipients, when we catch up with friends and colleagues, and meet other SCP members and students. For details on these events and on our truly outstanding divisional programs, please see our SCP Convention Programming online: https://www.div17.org/about-scp/conferences/apa-convention/.


SCP also has extensive programming in our two hospitality spaces. The main one is located in the Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, across from the DC convention center. The second one is the SCP Presidential Suite in the Renaissance Washington DC downtown, room TBA.
