The Proceedings and Addresses has historically been the primary publication for important news and information about the APA and its activities.
In the past, the Proceedings and Addresses consisted of five print issues, which were distributed to all APA members as well as university libraries. The November and May issues contained the annual presidential addresses delivered at the three divisional meetings, prize lectures, board meeting minutes, and other information of interest to APA members. Access to these issues is a member benefit; you will only see these files listed below if you are signed in. The other three issues contained programs for the Eastern, Central, and Pacific Division meetings. The program issues are publicly available for download.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 membership year, the Proceedings and Addresses will no longer exist in its previous print format, transitioning to a single annual print volume rather than five issues per year. The annual volume will include the annual presidential addresses and prize lectures, as well as the memorial minutes and awards; this print volume will be mailed in the fall only to those members who subscribe for print mailing. The volume will be available online to all members.
The divisional meeting programs will continue to be printed for distribution at the annual meetings but will no longer be mailed in advance. Meeting programs will, however, be available online several months before each meeting.
All other content previously published in the Proceedings and Addresses, including minutes of board meetings, divisional business meetings, and divisional executive committee meetings, will now be available online only.
These changes were made on the recommendation of the APA task force on communications and publications, which in 2012 recommended to the board of officers that much of the association's content be published online rather than in print.
