2000 American Psychological Association Convention 
Division 14 (SIOP) Program

Jan A. Cannon-Bowers and Danielle Merket
Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, Orlando, FL

Make your end-of-summer travel plans early! The first APA Convention of the new millennium will be held in Washington, DC from August 4th through August 8th. Division 14 events will be scheduled during the 3-day Focus on Science Program, which begins on Friday, August 4th and runs through Sunday, August 6th.

This year, Frank Landy will highlight Division 14's program with an invited address on "Science, Psychometrics, and the Law: Strange Bedfellows." We have also been fortunate enough to secure several outstanding symposia, conversation hours, panel discussions, and roundtables. Topics include personality and performance in leadership positions, personality assessment, qualitative research in I-O psychology, credentialing, cross-cultural teams, and I-O solutions to problems in the information technology industry. Paper sessions will be focused around timely workplace issues such as stress at work, selection/assessment, organizational development, and diversity. A number of SIOP members, including David Baker, Boris Baltes, Gwenith Fisher, Leaetta Hough, Richard Klimoski, James LeBreton, Dwayne Norris, Deniz Ones, Brian Ruggeberg, and Dan Svyantek will be chairing or co-chairing the scheduled events. In addition, we have arranged to co-sponsor a symposium with Division 21 (Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology) on recent breakthroughs in the information technology industry. These are just a few of the exciting events we have planned. An all-inclusive Division 14 Program Schedule will be provided in the July issue of TIP.

If you have any questions regarding the APA Division 14 Program content or schedule, please contact Jan Cannon-Bowers at cannon-bowja@navair.navy.mil  (APA Division 14 Program Chair) or Danielle Merket at merketdc@navair.navy.mil. We look forward to seeing you in DC in August!
