SIOP Program Highlights for the 2012 APA Convention

Karin A. Orvis
SIOP’s 2012 APA Program Chair
U.S. Army Research Institute
It’s time to make plans to attend the 2012 APA Convention to be held in sunny Orlando, Florida from Thursday, August 2 through Sunday, August 5. SIOP will have a strong showing at the convention with 26 hours of programming, selected to appeal to both SIOP researchers and practitioners. Some of the session highlights include invited addresses from the incoming 2012-2013 SIOP President Doug Reynolds, as well as from Tammy Allen, Kim Smith-Jentsch, and Mo Wang. Two of SIOP’s current APA council representatives, Debbie Major and John Scott, will have a special session on SIOP’s Role in APA. We will also continue the tradition of co-sponsoring a joint social hour with APA Division 5: Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics. Below is a brief summary of the session titles of SIOP programming at this year’s APA convention.
Finally, I’d like to acknowledge my cochair, Shonna Waters, the APA Program Committee reviewers, as well as Larry Nader, Tracy Vanneman, and Julie Olson-Buchanan. We simply could not have developed such an exciting line-up for this year’s APA convention without their service to SIOP. 
I hope to see you this summer in Orlando!
