Don’t be left out in the cold!
Thank you for your interest in joining the Illinois Psychological Association. With increasing pressure from all fronts attempting to lower the quality of mental health services and reduce funding for research, it is now more important than ever before that we remain organized. We must also move the profession forward so that psychologists are able to provide the full scope of services their extensive training allows. We know that the pressures of your work as a psychologist severely limit the time you can personally devote to advocacy. The IPA exists to ensure that someone is there looking out for you so that you can devote all your energy to your own work. The IPA is the only and largest (over 1400 members) organization in the state that represents you where you need it most at the local level.
As an IPA member you have access to the Member’s only section of this Website that includes information that will help you with your practice. You are also eligible to join our listserv where you can get immediate answers to your questions from fellow listserv members. As an IPA member you can also make use of our phone consultation service with our Director of Professional Affairs as well as access to consultation from members of our Ethics Committee. If you choose to use our placement services, IPA members are also given exclusive access to job listings as soon as they come in. Finally, IPA members benefit from discounts to our annual convention and continuing education programs.
Guest Members (e.g. Advertisers) join the IPA for free . Guest and Full Members have secure access to their Classified Ads, but only only Full Members can access Member’s Only content.
