MPA Annual Convention

Birth to End of Life - Issues, Ethics and Treatment
November 4, 2016
Double Tree Hotel Annapolis

The Convention is a multi-purpose affair! First and foremost, it is a venue for updating our professional knowledge and obtaining CE credits. In addition to offering 7 CE credits in one day, the Convention offers the opportunity to get reacquainted with old friends and to make new ones, to share our professional experiences with each other, and to enjoy being “away from the office”! We should also add that without our membership, the Maryland Psychological Association and the Convention would not exist, and as always there will be an emphasis on bringing in new members and energizing the current membership to actively participate in our organization. We know from our own experiences that such participation can be one of the most gratifying activities in one’s career.
