Mark Your Calendars for APA’s 2015 Convention


by SIOP Administrative Office

SIOP Past President Gary Latham to Give Invited Address

The American Psychological Association (APA) Convention is August 6-9, 2015 at the Toronto Conference Center. Registration for this event is now open!

SIOP (Division 14 of APA) is very excited about our APA program line up. The invited speaker on Thursday is Toronto’s Fire Chief Jim Sales from the fifth largest fire department in North America. He will discuss issues the Fire Service faces, including recruitment, leadership, and human resource management. He will pose the challenge: How can psychology help? On Friday, the invited speaker is Gary Latham. His presentation will examine the enduring effect of a primed goal on organizational behavior, replication experiments, and their congruence with Bargh's automaticity model and Locke and Latham's goal setting theory. For Saturday’s invited address, Amy Adler will discuss Walter Reed Army Institute of Research’s support to units deploying in response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and she will share results concerning the mental health and resilience of deploying troops.

In addition to these three invited talks, Division14 also has 16 other talks and two poster sessions that focus on workplace and organizational issues.

The Division has also organized a social that is not to be missed! The social will take place at the Steam Whistle Brewery Thursday night at 6:30pm. The Brewery is located in a 1929 historical building at the old Canadian Pacific Rail steam locomotive repair facility that helped pioneer this nation. This social hour is sponsored by SIOP, CEB’s SHL Talent Management Solutions and MHS Talent Assessment Solutions. We hope that Division 14 colleagues, friends, and future friends will find this the perfect location to see old friends, meet new friends, and talk anything (or nothing) I-O!
