Western Psychological Association


The Western Psychological Association was founded in 1921 for the purpose of stimulating the exchange of scientific and professional ideas and, in so doing to enhance interest in the processes of research and scholarship in the behavioral sciences. Support these goals by joining  and attending our annual convention.

Early registration for the 2017 convention in Sacramento closes Friday, April 7th. Register now to avoid the additional cost and time involved in on-site registration and get your membership at the same time.  

Students:  Sign up now for the Faculty-Student (Speed) Research Exchange.  Limited space available.

The Terman Teaching conference will be held Wednesday April 26.   The full 2017 convention program will be available soon.  The 2016 Convention Program will give you a sense of the schedule. 

We offer CE credit to professionals attending the convention. Over 50 hours of programming have been approved for CE credit – so there’s something for everyone.

The complete 2017 Convention Program is now available.  Use it to plan your time at WPA.

There are a few rooms left at the Sheraton Grand Hotel (king beds), so hurry and register before it is sold out!!  If you are too late, we have negotiated a special rate at the Holiday Inn Express for some additional rooms — this is a short walk away from the conference hotel.

Students: Join us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with all the latest WPA happenings.
