Welcome to GAIOP


GAIOP will offer a suite of programs for 2017. It includes five workshops on a variety of topics that should be of interest to those who value sharing ideas related to psychology and its application to work and human resource management. We plan to co-sponsor these programs with SIOP and will offer CEs for those who need them. GAIOP will also offer a couple of briefer sessions in conjunction with planned social and networking events. See below and the Upcoming Events on the Home page for the current schedule of events. Additional programs and events will be added as they are finalized.

Continuing Education

Each workshop session offers 3 continuing education (CE) credits for psychologists and is cosponsored by GAIOP and SIOP. SIOP is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. SIOP maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
