Annual Meeting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 meeting of the Eastern Psychological Association will be held virtually on March 5-6, 2021.  The call for submissions was sent to members, fellows and associates on September 5, 2020.   If you are not a current member of EPA but would like to submit for the upcoming meeting, you may join EPA by following the links on this website.  Since the meeting is virtual, we hope to hear from our US and international colleagues who otherwise might be unable to attend an EPA meeting.  Instructions for submitting your proposal can be found elsewhere on this website.  Please watch this space for updates and further information about the meeting. 

Please remember that only Members, Fellows, and Associates with an expiration date of May 31, 2021, may submit proposals for the meeting. The submission deadline is November 15, 2020.  If you are planning to submit a proposal, please do not wait until the last moment to pay dues, as payments may take up to 48 hours to process. All associates must have a faculty sponsor who, at the time of the submission, is a current EPA Member with dues paid for the current year (exp. 5/31/2021).

As in recent years, another call for proposals for a special undergraduate poster session will be issued later, with a December 1, 2020 deadline.

Anniversary Society:  To acknowledge and celebrate EPA’s 125th anniversary (2020), the EPA Board of Directors established a new category of membership, the Anniversary Society.  This level of membership is available to all members and fellows.  Membership in the Anniversary Society signifies a special commitment to EPA’s mission and carries a number of additional external benefits:  a designation in the program as a “125th year member,” a hardcopy of the 2021 program, recognition at the meeting, and additional EPA merchandise.  The cost of joining EPA as an Anniversary Society member is $125.  

Dues:  EPA dues/meeting registration is $75 for Members and Fellows, and $30 for Associates. There are no additional registration fees.  Since the EPA fiscal year begins on June 1 and ends on May 31, pay your dues now and know that you are paid up through the meeting and until May 31 of next year.  To pay dues, click on Join EPA or on Renew Your Membership. You will then be given the option to renew as an Anniversary Society member.  Use your credit card to pay your dues.

Program book:  A bound, printed copy of the program is available for $7 (includes domestic mailing), which you may pay along with your dues. To see this option, click on the Renew and Update information link after you’ve chosen Renew Your Membership.  (Note: A gratis copy of the hardcopy is provided to EPA Fellows and Anniversary Society members who request one). 

The 2021 virtual meeting will continue EPA's tradition of offering cutting edge developments in psychological science, application and teaching in the form of exciting lectures, symposia and posters.  To see the list of Keynote Presentations click here.
