The Annual Convention

The Annual APA Convention is one of the world’s preeminent events for educational psychology research. Members are encouraged to submit papers, posters, symposia, and collaborative proposals.

Looking to Renew?

Due to high end-of-year membership activity, we recommend submitting your renewal as soon as possible to ensure first-of-year benefits. APA members may renew their Division 15 membership with their annual statement; Professional Affiliates may renew via the button below!


Is APA Membership Required for Division 15 Membership?

No! Non-APA members are encourage to join Division 15 via our “Professional Affiliate” membership, which runs just $35/year. This option includes all benefits of full membership, with the exception of voting, eligibility for fellow status, and eligibility to serve in an elected office.

How long will it take to process my membership application?

Typically, memberships are processed within a week. However, during busier periods, some applications may take 2-3 weeks to renew.

How will I receive my copies of Educational Psychologist?

Your membership entitles you digital access to the current calendar year’s Educational Psychologist releases. Instructions for access will be sent to your registered email address. Full members, students, and professional affiliates will also receive paper versions of the journal by mail.

Will I be billed automatically for next year?

No. Renewal for the following year opens immediately following the annual APA Convention, and continues through the end of the year. We recommend early renewal to prevent a lapse in benefits.
