Affiliated Group Requests

The Eastern Division of the APA regularly allows (and encourages) other APA-affiliated philosophical groups and APA committees to host meetings in conjunction with the Eastern Division annual meeting. The next Eastern Division meeting will be held in New York City on January 4-7, 2021. If your group would like to hold a session in conjunction with the meeting please fill out this form by June 15, 2020.

The form asks for basic details about your group and also about your preferences for the timing of your session. Please note that while we do our best to accommodate preferences for session dates and times, given the size of the conference and number of groups it is inevitable that some groups will not get their first-choice meeting times.

After your group has been assigned a session time, you will be contacted in early July to give us your session details (e.g., the names of the presenters/commentators/chairs, the titles of papers), so that it can be included in the meeting program. Please note that all participants, including presenters, chairs, and commentators, must register for the meeting.


APA Affiliated Groups

Affiliated groups have the privilege of organizing sessions as part of APA divisional meetings. The APA provides space for such sessions and communicates information about such sessions to meeting attendees through the meeting program and other means as appropriate.

Affiliated groups are independent of the APA and are not subject to its governance, except that the APA may impose conditions on groups for affiliation and the use of meeting space. Sessions organized by affiliated groups, including their content, are the responsibility of the group and not of the APA.

To apply for affiliated group status, a group must be philosophical in nature (including interdisciplinary groups that engage with philosophy) and provide the following:

  • Group name

  • Mission statement

  • Certification of compliance with the APA's Nondiscrimination Statement

  • Contact information for a group representative for each divisional meeting

To apply for affiliated group status, complete the Application for Affiliated Group Status. You must be an APA member to submit an application.
