Dear Colleague,

The KPA Board wants you to know we appreciate and need your support as we are busy advocating for psychology in Kansas. A quick look back at 2017 reminds us that the leadership of KPA is committed to working on behalf of Kansas psychologists.

In 2017, Board of Governors of the Kansas Psychological Association continued to vigorously monitor updates and changes to the profession as they affect the landscape of the practice of psychology in Kansas. One way we accomplished this was via KPA’s Legislative Consultant, Whitney Damron, P.A. Whitney helps us track and monitor those issues that both directly and indirectly affect Kansas Psychologists.

Looking ahead into 2018, we will continue to build on the progress we have made and create new relationships that will move psychology forward. Keeping with this theme, many of the leaders of Kansas Psychological Association have been invited by the American Psychological Association to represent Psychology in Kansas at the annual State Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. The culmination of this 2 day meeting is visits to Capitol Hill where we will meet with members of Congress to advocate for psychology at both the state and national level.

Additionally, we are in the process of planning our 2018 Spring and Fall Conferences. We expect both conferences to continue to grow as they have in recent years. If you have ideas about topics you would like to see covered, please do not hesitate contacting us.

As always, a benefit of renewal is the inclusion in the doctor finder profile on KPA’s website. This service is used by fellow members and KPA staff to locate referrals. Additionally, the public can search for providers in their geographical areas.

You will be hearing from us this year, as the Board of Governors works to increase the membership of the Association.  Sadly, only about 10% of the licensed psychologists in Kansas are members of KPA and the work we do on behalf of all psychologists in Kansas.  This small group is working very hard for many, and we would like to have more members to allow for more programming, leadership, and financial support. 

KPA is working for you! Please join us for this exciting year!  (And encourage your colleagues).

If you have any questions about how to proceed, please feel free to email admin@kspsych.org or call toll-free (866) 860-7313.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jeremy Stevenson, PsyD

2018 President
