State Leadership Conference

The State Leadership Conference (SLC) is the annual advocacy training conference for leaders in professional psychology practice. The conference brings together psychologists from the states, U.S. territories and Canada, along with APA governance and divisions, to advocate for issues important to practicing psychologists. The conference also fosters leadership and effective governance strategies for participating associations.Past conferences have brought together more than 500 psychologists from all different perspectives in professional psychology. The conference culminates in a day of advocacy on Capitol Hill. Past Hill visits have brought psychologists face-to-face with legislators to increase the public’s access to psychological services undefined for example, in achieving true mental health parity and advocating for meaningful health care reform.
