Planning for ChicagoSIOPs Program at APA

Rosemary Hays-Thomas
University of West Florida

As I write this, we are putting the finishing touches on the SIOP portion of the APA program to be presented next August in Chicago. This year the convention has been restructured with three types of programming: regular divisional programming, APA-wide sessions, and newly-conceived cluster programming designed by groups of divisions. Division 14 is assigned to Cluster B, along with Div. 5 (Measurement), Div. 13 (Consulting), Div. 19 (Military), Div. 21 (Applied Experimental and Engineering), and Div. 23 (Consumer Psychology).

One effect of the restructuring is that there will be fewer competing programs. In addition, the convention has been shortened to 4 days, ending on Sunday. Blessedly, all substantive programming will be scheduled in one place (The McCormick Center), so conventioneers wont spend more time walking or on busses than they do in sessions! We hope this will lead to a more pleasant and productive convention experience for those of you who attend.

There is much of interest for SIOP members at this years convention. Besides our regular divisional programming outlined below, there is Cluster B programming on fairness and on technology (with several SIOP members presenting). For those of you who are licensed (or just want to update) there are expanded opportunities to earn CE credits. And there is relevant divisional programming organized by kindred divisions such as Divs. 5, 8, 9, 17, 19, 21, and others. In the Convention Program you will see Div. 14 colisted on sessions organized by other divisions when they seem relevant for our members.

Outlined below are CE workshops, followed by our SIOP programming and the Cluster B program. These are listed as we have submitted them. The days and times of sessions may be altered between now and the program publication, so updated information will appear in the July issue of TIP. But this should get you started on your plans to attend the Chicago meeting!

 Playing Fair: Juggling Multiple Views of Fairness

This first section of programming by Cluster B is intended to explore the concept of fairness from various perspectives represented by and relevant to the divisions in our cluster. We begin with a noted journalists thoughtful perspective on the notion of fairness as it is seen by the average working person. Studs Terkel will be interviewed by an associate, with questions provided by members of our cluster. The programming then turns to a panel whose members represent the various viewpoints of measurement, industrial/organizational, applied experimental, military, and consulting psychology, addressing the manner in which fairness is addressed in their areas of expertise. Next, two attorneys will discuss fairness and ethics as psychologists will see them in the arenas of practice and education. Finally, the programming closes with a Continuing Education workshop by Kevin Murphy covering fairness in the measurement of human attributes.
