I am working with Wayne Reznick, Ph..D. and Andy Benjamin, JD, PhD, ABPP (President of Div. 31) on a project called SHRReD (State Healthcare Reform Resource Database).
It is in the early stages of planning, but looks to be very promising in helping state psychological organizations share useful information on pertinent topics related to advocacy. It seeks to utilize the power of the internet and Web 2.0 services as a means of disseminating information to leaders and members of STPAs. I will keep everyone updated as I get more involved and learn more. Stay tuned.....

The American Psychological Association's Committee on Women in Psychology (CWP) maintains a network that is comprised of representatives from various divisions and state, territorial and provincial psychological associations.
The network allows committee members and representatives to share issues, strategies, questions, and concerns. CWP looks to the Network for ongoing monitoring of issues that relate to women in all areas within psychology and asks Network representatives to bring these issues and concerns to the attention of CWP, in addition to taking questions and issues back to their groups, as appropriate.
CWP is seeking nominations from MOPA for a CWP Representative. For more information about the committee, explore their webpage here. If interested, please contact Rich Martielli: (314) 652-4100 ext. 5-6404
