Preconference Workshops: What You Need to Know
Mercer Human Resource Consulting
We are pleased to present the 2005 SIOP workshops. We anticipate that the
workshops will fill up quickly, so register NOW to get the workshop of your
choice! We operate on a first-come, first-served basis. On-site workshop
registration is available ONLY if someone who has preregistered for a workshop
fails to show up.
The following workshops are sponsored by the Society for Industrial and
Organizational Psychology, Inc. and presented as part of the 20th Annual
Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Inc.
APA Division 14 is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer
continuing education for psychologists. APA Division 14 maintains
responsibility for the program. Seven (7) hours of continuing education credits
are awarded for participation in two (2) half-day workshops.
Note to all California participants seeking CE credit: As of January 2002, APA
sponsor credit is accepted for MCEP credit in California. This effectively
means that SIOP will not be reporting your participation to MCEP as in the
past. You are responsible for individually reporting your own CE credit to them
and paying any applicable fees. Of course, SIOP will still maintain its own
record of your participation and issue letters providing proof of attendance.
Note: This letter is found in your workshop packet if preregistered.
Date and Schedule
The workshops take place on Thursday, April 14, 2005the day before the regular
program of the SIOP conference begins. More specifically:
How to Register
To register, please use our online registration system, or if this
is not possible, complete the workshops section of the General Conference

is on a first-come, first-served basis. All workshops are half-day sessions and
will be presented twiceonce in the morning and once in the afternoon. You must
register for two half-day sessions (no half-day registration allowed).
Please see the SIOP Web site (www.siop.org)
for online workshop registration instructions. To register using the paper
form, you must fill out the workshop section. You will be asked to list your
top six choices. Because workshops fill up very quickly, we ask that you list
all six choices. Please list your choices in order of preference (1st is the
highest preference, 6th is the lowest preference). If you list fewer than six
workshops and your choices are filled, we will assume that you are not
interested in any other workshops and your workshop registration fee will be
fully refunded or not charged to your credit card. If you indicate on the
General Conference Registration Form that you will accept any open section, we
will assign you to a workshop.
Those who register for workshops online will receive a confirmation
e-mail right away. Those who register using the paper form will receive a
confirmatory e-mail once the form and payment have been processed.
