We hope you are as excited about the 2022 APA Convention as we are! The Convention will take place August 4-6 in Minneapolis, MN.
Registration is OPEN and can be done here: https://convention.apa.org/
We have an excellent lineup of Division 50 programming that includes divisional and co-sponsored symposia, posters, critical conversations, and skill-building sessions elevating SoAP’s 2022 theme, “Implementing a Public Health Approach to Addictions,” which was chosen by SoAP’s 2022 President, Dr. Mark Sobell. Additionally, Div 50 is hosting the following special events:
Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour
SoAP is proud to sponsor two poster sessions at the Convention, including the Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour featuring up-to-date research on a broad range of addictive behaviors. This event is cosponsored by SoAP, Division 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse) and NIH, and is an excellent way to reconnect with old colleagues, meet new colleagues, and engage in stimulating conversations about addiction psychology. As if all that isn’t enough, there will also be delicious catered food. Join us on Friday, August 5th, 4-6pm!
SoAP Business Meeting
At the business meeting, we will discuss the past year’s activities of the Executive Board and all SoAP committees, as well as distribute awards to SoAP members who have made outstanding contributions to the field. Please come to hear what we have been up to and to celebrate your colleagues.
Div 50 Social
Come hang out with your fellow Div 50 members! And bring a friend who may be interested in Div 50. Details TBD, but will be coming shortly.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2022 APA Convention in Minneapolis!
All the best,
2022 APA Planning Committee
