2017 Fall Convention

WSPA 2017 Fall Convention

Plan now to attend our 2017 fall convention and help us celebrate our 70th platinum anniversary. This year’s theme Can we talk? Connection, Compassion, Communication covers the spectrum of what we do, how we do it, and where we do it. The three-day convention is the premier event for member and non-member psychologists and affiliated mental health professionals to earn up to 18 CE credits and experience peer to peer networking that can never be matched online.

Our programming will cover new ways clinicians and clients talk to each other, policies that affect our profession, and ways psychology is used in conversation with the general public. Workshops on current and trending topics include telemental health, the transgender community, ethics and the law, and the current status of our state’s duty-to-warn policy.

Other convention highlights include keynote speaker Jane Beyer, senior health policy advisor at the Office of the Insurance Commissioner, a student poster session, reception for newly licensed psychologists, our annual stakeholder’s meeting, and the prestigious Washington Psychologist Awards.

Host Hotel and Lodging

This year’s host hotel is the Hilton in Bellevue, WA., which is conveniently located off of the 405 freeway and is 10 minutes from downtown Seattle and approximately 20 minutes from SeaTac airport. Attendees will enjoy free parking, a special convention Wifi connection and nearby eateries for lunch. A limited number of specially priced guest rooms are also available through October 2, 2017.

Sponsorship, Advertising and Exhibitors

The convention has many affordable opportunities for individuals, groups, vendors, and corporations to support our 2017 convention. There are seven sponsorship levels, display advertising in the convention program and Washington Psychologist Awards program, and a limited number of exhibitor spaces available.
