What’s new at the 2018 OPA Convention?

Free Assemblies...
Join us at our first official in-person Assemblies being held on Thursday and Friday at 8 a.m. Last November, OPA hosted a virtual Assembly where attendees discussed how psychologists can help the public who have been victims of or witnesses to gun violence. The convention Assemblies aim to address the ideas generated from the virtual Assembly and create a roadmap that OPA leadership can use to guide the association’s future education, advocacy and public outreach initiatives. By joining us in this opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas, your efforts will directly impact the future direction of OPA.

Mini-Tracks...
This year’s convention offers 26 workshops and over 54 hours of programming. Based on past attendee feedback, 4 mini-tracks of focused learning have been included for the following topics:

  • 7 – Child / Family Focused Workshops (Sessions #2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 13)
  • 4 – LGBT Focused Workshops (Sessions #9, 12, 15, 23)
  • 4 – Body Image Focused Workshops (Sessions #8, 11, 14, 20)
  • 3 – Substance Abuse Focused Workshops (Sessions #10, 16, 19)

Extended Daily Schedule...
Last year’s attendees raved about the CE luncheon programming, but missed the networking time. So this year, we’re giving attendees the best of both options by extending our day to allow for more networking time and a more relaxed daily schedule.

Back By Popular Demand…

  • Earn 1 CE each for Thursday and Friday's luncheon programming. 
  • Save and enjoy added flexibility with expanded convention package pricing. 
  • Build relationships with colleagues new and old at our early evening receptions.
