Regional Psychological Associations

As stated in Article XII of the APA bylaws, regional psychological associations are affiliated with the American Psychological Association. Regional associations are representative of the scientific and professional interests of the psychologists within a given region of the country. Contact information to reach the seven regional psychological associations appears below.

The annual meetings of the regional psychological associations provide an opportunity for psychologists and students to share knowledge, to take advantage of professional development and continuing education opportunities, and to develop professional networks. Highlights of the 2014 meetings of the regional psychological associations are published in the APA Monitor (February 2013).
