Membership Committee

Our mission is to recruit new members to the Society, as well as to retain current members and facilitate their involvement in the Society.

We believe that psychologists interested in issues of health benefit from involvement in the Society throughout their careers, and are therefore dedicated to serving our members across the spectrum: from student and early career professionals, to mid-career and senior health psychologists. We welcome involvement and feedback regarding how we can better serve members.
