Beginning this year, the CPA will not be accepting submissions for Pre-Conference Professional Development Workshops (PCWs). Instead, our team will be actively seeking out presenters and topics for the Pre-Conference Education Day. We hope this will result in subject matter that is better connected with the needs and interests of members and attendees.

Materials will still be built on a foundation of innovation and information, with a specific focus on relevance to psychological research, teaching, learning, and practice. We are taking this new approach based on an analysis of attendance patterns for recent PCWs, in response to member suggestions, and with an eye toward relevant topics of interest.

The PCW Day will be built around a solid core of specific subject areas that will be available each year starting in 2024, along with a selection of relevant and timely education opportunities that will be renewed annually.

Suggestions for workshop topics are always welcome – if you have an idea, please submit it to

Attendees will still be able to register for PCWs and the full Conference program using a single transaction.
