“I joined SIOP over 37 years ago and it continues to be the one and only professional society that meets the needs of both academics and practitioners in Industrial/Organizational Psychology; and encourages the interaction between both for the benefit of both science and organizations.  If you are a serious I/O professional and are not actively contributing in SIOP then you are missing a great opportunity.”   -Richard M. Vosburgh, Ph.D., SIOP member since 1981

SIOP serves a very valuable role in my professional practice.”   -Dr. Mark Poteet, SIOP member since 1992
