Workshops Chair's Message

August 2014 Newsletter Article

We had a great PAS meeting in May in Vancouver and part of the credit for the success goes to the participation of our members in the workshop process. APA members were involved both in workshop review and as workshop leaders. Almost 300 APA members participated in the workshop review process last fall. Ninety workshops were presented at the meeting, many of which were led or co-led by APA members. The workshops were very well received and were rated highly on their evaluations.

The call for workshops for the 2015 meeting in San Diego went out in early July. Workshop proposals are due September 3th, right after Labor Day! So, you still have time to get in a proposal now! Notifications will go out in early November. We are expecting many proposals as the last few years we have seen between 250-350 proposals per year.

Thank you in advance to those who are submitting proposals and to those who have signed up to review the proposals. Your hard work and dedication to the PAS meeting and the process is appreciated and goes to making the meeting a member-driven success.

Have a great end of summer and think workshops!
