Student Member Benefits

Students & AzPA

AzPA offers many opportunities for student involvement. In addition to sponsoring a student luncheon and poster session at our annual convention, we actively recruit student representatives from Arizona universities for the Academic & Student Affairs Committee. The chair of this committee serves as the Graduate Student Representative to the Governing Council, encouraging a student voice be included in the leadership of the association. We also have graduate student members volunteer on other committees, including Children’s Issues, Forensics, and Disaster Response, providing them with hands-on opportunities to get involved with issues special interest and to receive mentorship from psychologists in those areas.
