Puget Sound Association
Industrial-Organizational Psychologists

a partner organization of

The Puget Sound Association of Industrial-Organizational Psychologists (PSAIOP) meets about three times a year, often for a luncheon in Redmond, WA, but occasionally at other locations. For example, Seattle Pacific University and Amazon have each hosted meetings. There are no fees or dues. If we meet at a restaurant, members pay for their own meal. We usually have some type of instructional content at our meetings, so attendees can earn one hour of continuing education credit.
