Letter to Your Boss

Dear <...>:

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Inc. (SIOP) is the premier professional association for the field of industrial-organizational psychology, with more than 10,000 average annual members around the world. The Society's mission is to enhance human well-being and performance in organizational and work settings by promoting the science, practice, and teaching of industrial-organizational psychology.

<Your organization> benefits when its employees hold SIOP membership. SIOP provides a community of professionals in I-O and closely related disciplines who share best practices and current research to move the field forward and make a positive impact on businesses, their employees, and their bottom lines.

As a SIOP member, I earn many benefits for a fraction of the dues cost of many other professional associations, including the following:


  • Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice (IOP), the official quarterly journal of I-O psychology
  • The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist (TIP), a digital, quarterly news publication
  • Newsbriefs, a monthly e-newsletter
  • Affordable subscription rate for the optional, members-only SIOP Research Access service

Networking and Visibility

  • Opportunities to present at and attend the SIOP Annual Conference and Leading Edge Consortium
  • Acces to the my.SIOP member directory
  • Promotion and news on SIOP social media
  • The opportunity to be part of the SIOP Media Resources database
  • Committee volunteer opportunities

Incentives and Discounts

  • Significant member savings on Annual Conference and Leading Edge Consortium registration fees
  • 20% discount on most publications offered through the SIOP Store
  • Grant, award, and scholarship funds exclusively available to SIOP members

Additionally, participation in SIOP events, on committees, and in the my.SIOP online member community expands the reach of <your organization>’s name as a <kind of product/service provider that your organization is> every time I interact with colleagues and discuss my work.

Thus, the professional membership dues payment of $100 is a solid investment in supporting my professional development while also expanding the visibility of <your organization> amongst SIOP members and within the broader industrial-organizational psychology community.
