The British Psychological Society is now a Network Partner to the Alliance for Organizational Psychology

The British Psychological Society (BPS) and the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) are delighted to announce that the British Psychological Society has become a Network Partner in the Alliance for Organizational Psychology’s (AOP) and the “Big Tent” initiative.

This opportunity will enable the Division of Occupational psychology to build our international collaboration with major professional associations and promote on a global scale the values of best practice, visibility, and enhancing our science which we hold in common with our partners.

The DOP aims to raise the profile of Occupational Psychology and encourage the advancement and sharing of psychological knowledge and practice. We are excited at the prospect of networking with colleagues from around the world. 

We look forward to working with the Alliance for Organizational Psychology and being part of the “Big Tent” Initiative. Through combined efforts and leveraging joint communications, we hope to facilitate understanding, develop international opportunities, and support collective activities with the AOP.

The BPS, www.bps.org.uk, is the representative body for psychologists in the United Kingdom. It is home to over 62,000 members and has 154 networks.

One of these networks is the Division of Occupational Psychology, which represents the interests of occupational psychologists in the UK.

The BPS and DOP provide resources and a community for members across psychology, whether practitioners, academics, or part of the wider psychological family.

As Dr Hazel McLaughlin, President of the British Psychological Society commented, “We are committed to international collaboration. We have worked informally within the Alliance for several years and are delighted to formally become a Network Partner of the Alliance for Organizational Psychology. We look forward to sharing research, knowledge, and ideas and to learning from our international partners. Together we are stronger.”

CSIOP and the Virtual CPA Convention

Dear CSIOP members,

As you might have learnt, CPA has officially decided to offer a virtual convention to replace the cancelled in-person one. Everyone whose work was originally accepted for the convention (symposium, GIMME-5, poster, conversation session, etc.) thus has the opportunity to “present” their work as part of the virtual convention. This will involve deciding whether you want to participate in the convention by May 15 and submitting your work (e.g., PDF of poster, pre-recorded presentation) by mid-June. The work will then be accessible asynchronously for the convention e-attendees over the summer. At this stage, CPA has informed us that the CPA Head Office is exploring all means to host the virtual conference at no to minimal cost for CPA members and affiliates.

The CSIOP Executive Team has been brainstorming various options, and has worked (and is still working) together with CPA to ensure the best possible convention experience to our I-O members. As a starting point, we encourage all our members who had their work accepted to contribute to the virtual convention. And we will encourage all our members to “attend” the virtual convention and check out the excellent work of our colleagues over the summer. Importantly, our plan is to still have our traditional CSIOP student poster competition, with awards/$ prices for the top posters. We are also exploring opportunities to organize virtual mentoring options for students. And, we will host our Annual General Meeting via video conference over the summer. We will provide more details in the next few weeks as things unfold with CPA.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!

The CSIOP Executive Team
