Fun and Games at the Conference

3/9/2016-

by SIOP Administrative Office

Pre-purchase Disneyland Tickets by March 26 for Best Pricing

I-O psychologists know the importance of work-life balance, and past Conference attendees know that a lot of work gets done at during Conference week.  So the organizing committee has programmed several opportunities to help members keep that all-important balance.

It wouldn’t make any sense to hold a conference in Anaheim without making arrangements for attendees to go to Disneyland, and discounted tickets to the Magic Kingdom are available here. Tickets must be pre-purchased to get the discount, and the discount is only available to registered attendees. Through March 26, tickets can be purchased at discounts ranging from 12% to 19%, depending on the number of days purchased. After March 26, the discount ranges from 7% to 16%. April 12 is the last day to pre-purchase tickets with the SIOP Conference discount.

The annual Frank Landy 5K Fun Run, coordinated by Paul Sackett and presented by EB Jacobs and Shaker, starts at 7 am on Saturday April 16. Competitors get a t-shirt and the top finishers in each category will be recognized in an upcoming edition of The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist. Find more information about the run here.

Oenophiles can visit 3 Temecula Wine Country wineries and enjoy the “Inland Empire’s” scenery on the Wine Tasting Adventure in Temecula, offered on Sunday, April 17. Tickets for this unique experience are $125 per person. Lunch is included. Learn more here.

The Local I-O Group Relations Committee is offering a game you can play on social media throughout the conference. Coordinated by Ginger Whelan, the Selfie Bingo game is intended to encourage members to mingle and have a good time.  Stop by the Local I-O Committee’s booth in the Wi-Fi Lounge at the Conference for details on rules and prizes.  Yes, you can win prizes!

You can also win prizes for social posts from the Electronic Communications Committee, chaired by Tilman Sheets. The ECC booth is also located in the Wi-Fi Lounge. That’s where you will find the #SIOP16 badge ribbons and other swag.  ECC members are hosting the next installment of the new #SIOPchat series. Watch for more updates on the #SIOPchat soon.
