Mark your calendars for April 14, 2005 to attend our specially selected preconference workshops for SIOP in Los Angeles! The Workshop Committee has been working intensely to bring you information and insights on the most pressing issues affecting our discipline. Thanks to the generous input and feedback from many of you, we have prepared an exceptional lineup of speakers and topics to provide you with unique professional development opportunities.

Heres a peek at some of the titles for the 2005 workshops and the extraordinary lineup of experts that will lead them:

and there might be more, but remember that you get to choose only two! And to help you decide, you will find descriptions of the workshops and short biographical sketches for the presenters in the preconference announcement booklets and on the SIOP Web site during registration in January.
