Conference planning
Program submission decisions have been completed and letters informing you of those decisions were mailed yesterday.  If you did not receive a letter, please check your spam mailbox before contacting EPA at  

The schedule of presentations will be available in the next 10 days.  We hope that regardless of when your presentation is scheduled you will plan to attend the entire meeting, which starts the evening of February 29 with the Psi Chi keynote address by Dr. Sara Jaffe, a developmental psychologist, and ends on March 2.  If you are a student member of EPA, you should think of the meeting as a learning experience, an opportunity to meet students from universities other than your own, an opportunity to learn from faculty leaders in our field.  It’s also an opportunity for networking at social events and learning about graduate study and career opportunities in a workshop.

The 2024 conference of the Eastern Psychological Association meeting, will be held at the downtown Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia on February 29 - March 2, 2024.  Rooms may be reserved at the special rate of $209 (single/double + tx) before February 6th, 2024 (the cut-off date) by clicking the link:

Essay Competition
We are pleased to announce that Brittany Vincent, Kayleigh Keenan, Courtney Pisano and Anthony Loiacono from St. Joseph’s University (NY) have been chosen as the winners of EPA’s gun violence essay competition for their research proposal, “Examining the effect of threatened masculinity on gun violence.” We will post a version of that proposal on our website in the weeks ahead and the proposal will be presented as a poster at this year’s conference in Philadelphia.   The authors will be present to accept an award and to discuss their essay at the conference.  The proposal also will be published in a forthcoming special issue of Psychological Reports on gun violence.  The EPA Board of Directors extends its congratulations to the winners.
