Welcome to the Louisiana Psychological Association
By way of introduction my name is Cindy Bishop and I'm the new Executive Director of the Louisiana Psychological Association. The LPA Executive Council contracted with my association management firm Checkmate Strategies on December 1, 2014 and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with the Louisiana Psychological Association.

 You can reach our staff at the following email addresses:

Cindy Bishop, Executive Director   cindy.bishop@checkmate-strategies.com

David Roberson, Assistant Executive Director   drobe811@msn.com  David's primary function is convention management.

Our staff, along with the LPA Executive Council, are busy planning a great annual convention slated for Friday June 12th and Saturday June 13th in New Orleans. Below is a link to the Request for Proposals if you are interested in offering a 1.5 hour training session at our annual convention. In the meantime, SAVE THE DATE. In the next few months, we will be sending all of our members information on registration, along with the meeting schedule.

Also during the 2015 LPA Annual Convention, we want to invite companies who work with licensed psychologists to attend our convention and showcase their products and services. If you know of companies that may want to have an exhibit booth at our annual convention, below is a link to the Sponsor Application.

Also of note is the 2015 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature. This year, the sixty day session commences on Monday, April 13, 2015 and adjourns on June 11, 2015. The Louisiana Psychological Association has a long rich history of representing licensed psychologists in Louisiana. The Louisiana Psychological Association keeps a watchful eye on the state legislature to ensure that psychologists have the ability to practice their profession in the best environment possible. LPA retains a lobbyist to represent the interests of the association members. 

Just a reminder that your membership dues are due no later than February 1, 2015. Membership in the LPA is a sound investment and we hope you take a few minutes to pay your membership dues investment by credit card online.
