IPPA members may join any division. To join a division, update your member profile as per the instructions on the membership page.
Divisions communicate with members primarily through blogs and the Monthly News Round-up email. Division projects may include publications, educational webinars, online resources and program content for the World Congress on Positive Psychology.
For division-specific news and announcements, please visit the division blogs.
IPPA Members, Associates, and Students with an active IPPA membership can participate in professional divisions in their field(s) of interest. IPPA Affiliates can subscribe to receive email updates about division activities. IPPA Students are automatically enrolled in SIPPA.
First, join IPPA or ensure your existing membership is up-to-date. Once you have an active IPPA membership, please log in to your IPPA profile and click Edit / View Information. There you will see a section near the bottom of the page with information about our current professional division(s). To register, simply check the division box and save your profile.
It depends on the IPPA division. SIPPA was our first division to form when we first launched our association, and you can read more about their programs – including mentoring, a newsletter, regional representatives, and more – on the SIPPA website. The Work & Organizations Division recently sponsored programming at the Fourth World Congress on Positive Psychology and announced its first call for papers for their new publication: Positive Work and Organizations: Research and Practice.
