Registration for the VA Psychology Summit in Washington, DC, is now open!


The VA Psychology Leadership Conference Planning Committee has long considered the idea of hosting a meeting in Washington, D.C. to involve leaders who may not be able to attend the conference in San Antonio, Texas.  This year, we hope to continue the discussion from the 2017 VA Psychology Leadership Conference in an alternate venue in conjunction with the APA annual convention.  Currently, we are developing the program for this one-day event, which will include representatives from Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs), VACO leaders, and representatives from AFGE.
