2009 APA Program Preview &
2008 Division 3 Fellows
– Emily Elliott, Division 3 2009 Program Chair
We are planning for next year’s meeting in Toronto (Aug. 6-9, 2009) and are looking forward to an exciting convention. This year’s APA president, James Bray, is working closely with the divisions to bring together a new programming format, called the “Convention Within the Convention”. Division 3 has pledged two hours of our programming time to contribute to this event, in the hopes of bringing science to a larger audience at the convention. As one example of this, we are currently working with Division 5 (Evaluation, Measurement, & Statistics) to create a methodology strand as one component of the Convention Within the Convention. We are planning to work with other science divisions as well, to put together a strong program of well-attended events.
Also, we would like to encourage everyone to register early for the convention, so that we can try to get as many Division 3 members in the same hotel as possible. This will greatly facilitate participation in Division 3 programming, and will place you even closer to the fun events, like the Division 3 social hour! As soon as we have more details about the hotels, we will send out a message to the Division 3 list serve.
Finally, you can expect high quality Division 3 programming. New Fellows will be giving presentations, as well as New Investigator Award Winners from 2008. We are looking forward to another great conference, and hope to see lots of Division 3 members.
See you in Toronto!
