The Georgia Association for Industrial-Organizational Psychology (GAIOP) is a professional organization created to promote sharing of ideas and information about psychology as applied to work and human resource management. We provide professional development programs, including continuing education workshops cosponsored with the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
