SCRA members have opportunities to gather at national, international, and regional events throughout the year. 

Community psychologists and allies have several opportunities to meet with others and learn about the field in national, international, and regional events dedicated to community research and action. 

Biennial Conference

SCRA Biennial Conferences draw together SCRA and other community members from around the world to engage in conversations about recent developments in community research and action. The next biennial conference will be held in June of 2019 on the campus of National Louis University in Chicago, IL.  As it becomes available, additional information about the biennial can be found on the 2019 Biennial page.

To learn more about biennial conferences and see information from past conferences, please visit the Biennial Conference section. 

Regional Conferences

Those looking to connect with community psychologists a little closer to home have ample opportunities to do so in Regional Conferences which are held throughout the year.

Calendar of Events

In addition to the Biennial and Regional Conferences, SCRA members are well-represented in related conferences throughout the year, such as the American Psychological Association (APA) and American Evaluation Association (AEA) conferences.
