Arizona psychological association
Advancing Psychology in Arizona State Since 1950
The Arizona Psychological Association was founded in 1950 and became an affiliate of the American Psychological Association in 1951. Originally incorporated in Arizona in 1961 as the Arizona State Psychological Association, the association was re-incorporated in 1986 under its present name.
The Mission of the Arizona Psychological Association is to support its members, advance the profession, preserve its integrity, promote health, and advocate in the public interest.
AzPA's Prescriptive Authority committee is advocating to gain prescriptive authority for appropriately trained, licensed psychologists in Arizona. All contributions will be used to support legislative efforts for prescriptive authority for psychologists in Arizona.

When did you join AZPA and what were some of the initial benefits for you?
I joined AZPA soon after finishing my PhD. It just seemed like a good thing to do. I found membership helpful in the early years of my career for seeking postdoctoral supervision, looking for jobs, and building a private practice. It’s continued to be helpful for referrals.
