WSPA Fall Convention Starts This Friday


The 2017 Fall Convention is almost here. The information below will help attendees prepare for the upcoming convention days.

Washington Psychologist Awards

I would first like to clear up some confusion on attending the Washington Psychologist Awards. All registered attendees are invited to attend the Awards Ceremony on Friday November 3rd from 5:30 pm to 8 pm. The timing was set to allow anyone attending Friday CEs to wind down, have dinner and let Friday evening traffic subside. The menu has been upgraded from a buffet to a plated dinner, please visit this link to view your dinner options. We know not everyone will be able to attend, we still have a lot of room for the awards, so please consider attending. In order to have a firm count to catering by November 1st, please reply back to this email letting us know if you plan on attending, and if you are bringing a guest. Also let us know if you prefer a vegetarian meal. You can also decide on Friday to attend.

Daily Schedules:

Details of all workshops can be found online at the links below. We are pleased to announced that our keynote talk has just been approved for 1.5 CE. We are not allowed to market a CE before approval, so the keynote session was not listed until today. This will allow for a full 6 CEs on Friday.

Please visit our website and look for the We expect that all convention Certificates will be emailed out by November 22 at the very latest.
