Division 3 Program at the APA 2006 New Orleans Convention:

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez...Again


Marvin Lamb, Division 3 Program Chair


The Division 3 program for this year’s APA convention promises to be both informative and entertaining. This year Division 3 has joined with Division 6 to present three wonderful symposia which should be of great interest to members of both Divisions. In addition, there will be eleven invited addresses, a poster session, and of course the Presidential Address from Tom Zentall. Add in the social hour that will be hosted jointly by Divisions 3 and 6, and it’s clear that a good time will be had by all. The tentative schedule of events is presented below. See you in New Orleans!
