The APA Pacific Division invites those who are interested in commenting at or chairing a session at its 2021 annual meeting. Signing up to chair or comment is a significant route onto the program, and we endeavor to find spots for those who wish to attend the meeting.

The 2021 meeting will be held March 31–April 3 in Portland, Oregon, at the Hilton Portland Downtown.

Note: Currently, all three APA divisions are planning to hold in-person meetings in 2021. At the same time, we are also considering alternative formats, such as virtual meetings, as contingencies in the case that our usual meeting format becomes impossible. Though external forces like the ongoing pandemic affect and inform our plans, your participation is the most critical input for planning any meeting. If you are considering submitting a session request, we encourage you to do so.

To sign up to chair or comment at the meeting, please complete this online form. You will be asked to supply your name, affiliation, email address, and areas of interest. If you’ve volunteered in the past, please be sure to select the “renewals” option.

Submitting a paper is no obstacle to signing up to chair or comment: if your paper is accepted, you are released from any chairing or commenting obligations. Please note: Paper submissions will open on August 1 and close on September 2.

Please note that all program participants, including presenters, chairs, and commentators, must register for the meeting.

The program for the Pacific meeting will be finalized by October 14. If your offer to chair or comment has not been adopted by the program committee by that time, we thank you and hope that you will consider signing up again in future years.
