My name is Michael Amico, Ph.D. and I am the Association Coordinator of the New England Psychological Association. The New England Psychological Association (NEPA) was incorporated in 1963 and is the New England affiliate of the American Psychological Association. NEPA partners with the Northeastern Conference for the Teaching of Psychology (NECTOP). At the New England Psychological Association, we are a Non-Profit 501c 3. Our Mission states that, “NEPA is dedicated to the advancement of psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare. NEPA in partnership with NECTOP hosts an annual meeting each fall that includes invited addresses, symposia, workshops, papers, and posters on the topics of psychological science research and teaching.”
The organization serves students and professionals as an avenue to exchange research and ideas in all areas of psychological science. As a result, it helps to foster a sense of how interconnected all areas in psychology are. Part of what our conferences do is allow us to raise funds via registration and donations to support important keynote speakers presenting their research in all areas of psychology at our annual meetings. Also, these conferences allow us to raise funds to support students’ research via the Honorary Undergraduate Scholar Awards. These conferences also have allowed the New England Psychological Association to undertake initiatives in past years with such important topics such as increasing awareness of the topic of inclusivity and diversity as well as increasing awareness of mental health issues prevalent in society today. While we have made some great strides, the New England Psychological Association still has a lot to accomplish.
We need your support to continue this work and ensure that programming that is available to our members is cutting edge in all areas of the psychological sciences. Would you consider donating financially to NEPA to help us achieve our mission? We also in the past have had former members of the organization set up their estate planning in such a way that once they passed away a donation was made in their name to the organization. If you have any questions, I would be happy to provide you with more information about how you can help support our work at the New England Psychological Association.
Please join us! With your donation, we’re one step closer. Email me if you have any questions.
