has its benefits...
Keep in the loop
IPA members receive
information on current topics via IPA's members-only listserv, The Idaho
Psychologist (IPA's newsletter), and IPA’s website. Members also benefit from
the efforts of a contracted lobbyist, who monitors legislation and provides
updates on issues important to psychologists and their clients.
Network with your colleagues
IPA members socialize with
other members during the annual regional meetings, at continuing education
events, at peer consultation group meetings, and at the annual convention,
which is usually the largest gathering of psychologists in the state.
IPA members may obtain free
ethical consultations from members of IPA's Ethics Committee.
Quality continuing education
IPA organizes quality
continuing education events which are usually offered to members at
significantly discounted rates. IPA coordinates a two-day annual convention
each spring. IPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to
sponsor continuing education for psychologists. In addition, IPA has agreements
with other nearby state psychological associations that make it possible for
IPA's members to attend other states' continuing education events at their
members' discounted rates.
Opportunities to increase
your professional visibility
IPA members have
opportunities to participate in public education activities, a
Find-A-Psychologist service (members must qualify to participate and pay a
marketing fee), and our Speakers Bureau.
Legal consultation program,
credit card processing services & more
IPA members may opt to
purchase legal services through a legal consultation program or discounted
credit card processing services. In addition, members occasionally have other
unique opportunities through IPA (e.g. Verizon wireless discounts).
