APA Call for Convention Proposals | Washington, DC | August 7–10, 2014 8
• enhance your professional presentations skills;
• broaden your professional network;
• attend one complimentary CE workshop; and
• receive an honorarium of $150 per instructional
hour, per workshop (i.e., $1,050 for a full-day workshop and $600 for a half-day workshop).
Accepted workshop proposals will be scheduled
during the 4 days of the convention—Thursday,
August 7, through Sunday, August 10, 2014.
Presenters must be available to present their
workshop on any given day.
The 2014 Workshop Proposal Form will be available
online on Tuesday, September 3, 2013. All proposals
must be submitted through the online Convention
Programming System—CE Workshop Proposal section at www.apa.org/ed/ce. Click on the “Call for
CE Workshop Proposal” link. Online instructions
are provided to guide you through the process.
The proposal does not have to be completed in one
sitting (i.e., you may start, save, and return to it at
a later time). Before final submission, review your
proposal thoroughly. Once submitted, your proposal is final. Upon successful submission, a screen
appears acknowledging your submission and providing you with a proposal ID. Print that screen and
save the proposal ID for future reference.
Note: Some APA divisions offer preconvention CE workshops. These divisional workshops are separate from the CE
workshops offered by the CEP Office and the CEC.
Deadline: Monday, November 11, 2013
The CE workshop proposal deadline falls earlier
than the deadline for convention session proposals submitted to APA divisions. The CEC makes
its workshop selections by mid-January.

Deadline for Submissions: Monday, December 2,
Contact the APA Convention Office at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-336-6020 to
obtain full instructions and requirements for submitting a film or other media program proposal
The APA Ad Hoc Committee on Films and Other
Media seeks to broaden the APA Film Festival’s
base by attracting filmmakers outside of the traditional psychological community who are creating
media that artistically comment on psychological
and social issues of the day. Awards for excellence
will be given for films in three categories: feature
length, shorts, and avant-garde.
IX. Participation of Associated
Associated psychological organizations that would
like to request a program time for a business meeting, an award presentation, or a social hour should
communicate their requirements and detailed
program plans to the Board of Convention Affairs.
The deadline for submitting such requests is
Monday, January 20, 2014. All events sponsored
by an associated psychological organization must
be approved by the Board of Convention Affairs for
program content and the assignment of meeting
space. Without such approval, the event will not
have official convention status and will not be
listed in the Convention Program.
Program time will not be made available to any
political action committee or other political
entity, nor will program time be used for any
political activity or for the support or opposition
of any political candidate.
To be considered by the Board of Convention
Affairs, programs proposed by associated psychological organizations (those not listed in the APA
Bylaws) should meet the following criteria:
• The group must be relevant to the science and
practice of psychology.
• The session cannot involve any financial gain
above actual expense of operation to the organizer or other participants.
• The session may not interfere with the orderly
business of APA.
• The session shall be consistent with the APA
Code of Ethics, shall not reflect unfavorably on
APA, and shall be subject to the policies and
procedures of the APA.
