About MPA

The purpose of the MPA annual meeting is to share research across all areas of psychology. The annual meeting features invited addresses and talks from leading psychologists across the United States, papers and posters addressing a wide range of topics in current psychological science, workshops addressing the teaching of psychology, research methods, and statistics, and discussion groups, roundtables, and social events where members can share ideas and interests.

Three affiliate groups also present as part of MPA. Those include Psi ChiThe Society for Teaching Psychology, and The Society for Community Research and Action.

The annual meeting is open to psychologists, students, and members of the public.

The 91st annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association was held in Chicago April 11 – 13, 2019. The MPA program consisted of nearly a thousand research presentations across a broad range of disciplines, and included major addresses and methodology workshops. The additional programs offered by Psi Chi, the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, and the Society for Community Research and Action were also quite strong. Thank you to the many investigators who presented their research or participated in round tables, and to the over 3100 people who attended.

The Call for Papers for the 93rd annual meeting will go out soon and planning is under way for the coming year’s conference which will be held from, April 22-24, 2021. Once again, the meeting will be held at the beautiful Palmer House Hilton. Share your research, make new friends, and connect with psychological scientists from across the Midwest and the world.
