Submit a Proposal for the 2020 NYSPA Convention

Friday, January 31, 2020  

NYSPA's 82nd Annual Convention

Queensbury Hotel
Glens Falls, NY
June 12-14, 2020

Celebrating Psychology in New York


NYSPA, founded in 1921 as the New York State Association of Consulting Psychologists, was the first state psychological association in the country. As we approach our 100th year, it is important to reflect on the impact we have had on the profession. It is impossible to provide an adequate list of the prominent psychologists and psychoanalysts who have either practiced or taught in New York without leaving someone out. New York State has been at the forefront of research, practice, and advocacy since our inception.

As such, we celebrate these accomplishments at this year's convention by highlighting the following three themes:

  1. The Science and Practice of Psychology
  2. Diversity and Social Change
  3. The History of Psychology in New York/"Great Thinkers" Series

We are seeking submissions related to individual, family, group, organization, and community-based practices. We welcome innovations in assessment and treatment from all theoretical modalities. The program committee encourages proposals for symposia, posters, discussion hours, and workshops from individuals representing all areas of psychology. We encourage submissions from all levels of professionals, including students. 

The deadline to submit a program is March 15, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact NYSPA at,, or 518-437-1040.
