The Rocky Mountain Psychological Association is governed by a six-member elected Executive Voting Board consisting of the President, President-Elect, Past-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Diversity Council Chair as well as four appointed voting members (Program Chair, Historian/Archivist, Convention Coordinator, and Teaching Conference Coordinator) and one appointed non-voting (Convention Manager) member. RMPA was founded in 1930 for the purpose of advancing psychology as a science, as a profession and as a means of promoting human welfare in the States of Colorado, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.
During April of each year a convention is held at various locations throughout the region at which scientific papers, posters and symposia are presented. Paper and internet submission is available to members, professionals, and students. Convention information, registration forms, as well as convention programs are available at the RMPA internet site (www.rockymountainpsych.org). Membership is available to both professionals and students. RMPA remains an advocate throughout all phases of professional development by the dissemination of scientific and professional ideas. Several research awards are available to convention participants.
