Get Involved in STP!

If you’re an STP member interested in becoming more involved in STP activities then you’ve come to the right place. STP is committed to providing opportunities to as many of its members as possible to participate in STP initiatives. Whenever there’s a committee, taskforce, or working group vacancy, this will be one of the places where the vacancy is announced. In the meantime, here’s a partial list of executive committee members and their areas of responsibilities. If you click on each name, you’ll be directed to that person’s email address. Even if there is no current vacancy, you should feel free to contact one or more of these individuals to express your interest in serving on a specific committee. If you’re a nonmember visitor to this site and are interested in getting involved with STP, then by all means return to the homepage and submit your membership application online. We welcome anyone interested in the teaching of psychology.
