Introducing the First Annual SIOP Master’s Student Consortium

Dan Sachau
Minnesota State University

The 1st Annual Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology Master’s Student Consortium will be from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 26, 2007 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.  The consortium is modeled after the successful SIOP doctoral consortium and is the result of efforts by the SIOP Education and Training Committee and specifically the work of Steven Rogelberg, Timothy J. Huelsman, Nora Reilly, Gwen Fisher, and Geneva Phillips.

The consortium is designed for students who are enrolled in master’s programs in I-O psychology or OB/HRM.  The program includes an impressive lineup of speakers who graduated from master’s programs and have excelled as managers and consultants for some of the nation’s most successful organizations. 

Speakers will meet with small groups of students and discuss issues related to finding, keeping, and getting promoted in I-O-related jobs.  Participants will attend two workshops, a question-and-answer roundtable, and social hour. 

In December, each master’s program coordinator will receive consortium registration materials.  Program coordinators will be asked to nominate two students to participate in the consortium.  To provide students with a better opportunity to interact with speakers and each other, enrollment in the consortium is limited to a total of 40 students.  Students will be admitted to the consortium on a first-come, first-served basis.

The fee for the consortium is $50 per participant. This fee includes program materials and refreshments.  If you have any questions about the consortium, please contact Dan Sachau at Sachau@mnsu.edu or call 507-389-5829.  Speakers include:

Mike Erisman, Senior Director Human Resources, Microsoft Marketing
Ali Jerden, Senior Consultant, The Coca-Cola Company
Pamela Karle, Americas Employee Satisfaction Program Manager, IBM

Allison Lamazor, Talent Acquisition & Development, American Express

Jessica Meyer, Consultant, Personnel Decisions International
