Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA)

The Midwest region held its annual conference during SCRA affiliated meeting at the Midwestern Psychological Association on April 13th, 2018. The annual conference is an opportunity to share work that is being done in the field and learn from others doing similar work.   Conference attendees had an opportunity to participate in poster sessions, roundtable discussions and symposiums.  Scholars across the region submitted 62 proposals (36 posters, 21 roundtables, 5 symposiums).  Undergraduate and graduate students participated in the poster session showcasing their work and passion for community psychology. Congratulations to the poster winners!

After the SCRA affiliated meeting concluded, a social event at a near-by restaurant, Exchequer,allowed members to have an informalopportunity to meet with students, practitioners, and faculty from across the region. Although the event was informal, members took advantage of the opportunity to network and possibly make connections for future collaborations.  In addition, the poster award winners were notified of their accomplishment.  Check out the photos from the dinner.

The next MPA conference will take place April 12, 2019 in Chicago at Palmer House. Look out for updates on the SCRA Listserv.
