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.

We look forward to seeing you in DC in August!
