SIOP Preconference Workshops: What You Need to Know

Suzanne Tsacoumis
Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO)

We are pleased to present the 2009 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 ONLY if someone who is 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 24th Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Inc. SIOP–APA Division 14, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. SIOP maintains responsibility for this program and its content. 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: APA sponsor credit is accepted for MCEP credit in California. You are responsible for individually reporting your own CE credit to MCEP, issuing letters providing proof of attendance and paying for any participation. Note: This letter is found in your workshop packet if preregistered.

Date and Schedule

The workshops take place on Wednesday, April 1, 2009, the day before the regular program of the SIOP conference begins. The schedule for the day is as follows:

Registration:  7:15 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
Morning Workshops: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Lunch: 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Afternoon Workshops: 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Reception (Social Hour): 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.


How to Register

To register, please use our online registration system, or if this is not possible, complete the “workshops” section of the conference registration form in the center of the registration booklet. Registration for workshops is on a first-come, first-served basis. All workshops are half-day sessions and will be presented twice, once 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 less than six workshops and your choices are filled, we will assume 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.


SIOP Members and Affiliates: $400
Nonmembers of SIOP: $650

Fees include all registration materials for two workshop sessions, morning coffee, lunch, and the social hour. Additional guest tickets for the social hour may be purchased at the door. The cost will be posted at the door of the social hour room.

If Your Organization Is Paying the Check…

Please mail your conference registration form to the SIOP Administrative Office, even if your organization is sending a check separately. (Sometimes they don’t send the form.) Indicate on the copy of the form that your organization is paying and the check will be mailed separately. Make sure your name is on the check and/or your organization’s remittance material. (Sometimes organizations don’t indicate for whom they are paying.) Keep in mind that your conference registration will not be finalized until payment is received.
