We have arrived at the end of 2023, and I wanted to give you a quick update on KPA.
In 2023, we lowered rates for Early Career Psychologists (up to 10 years post-graduate), first time members, post-docs, and Full Members. This felt like the perfect time to address the financial burden we are all adjusting to since the pandemic by offering our membership at a lower rate. Your membership fees will have some special benefits that include:
In recent years, your KPA board was hard at work advocating for the benefit of all psychologists while taking care to speak on behalf of psychologists working in Kansas and the communities we serve. Our advocacy efforts have included:
Your new or continued membership allows various board members to attend and participate in advocacy summits where we talk with federal legislators from our state about our state's mental health needs.
A more in-depth update will be forthcoming. Please consider joining or renewing now for 2024 so that we can continue our future planning,
Jason Malousek, PsyD (President 2024)
