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.

Although the 92nd in-person annual meeting (2020) was cancelled, we are excited to begin planning the 93rd annual meeting which will be held 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.

The Call for Papers for the 93rd annual meeting will go out in early September. Please check back then for more information.
