SPSSI was founded in 1936. While maintaining its status as an independently incorporated society, SPSSI also became an affiliated organization of the American Psychological Association (APA) from 1937 to 1945, and Division 9 of the APA from 1945 to the present.
SPSSI actively participates in APA programs including the APA annual convention, the APA Council of Representatives (COR), and the APA Divisions for Social Justice. We urge our members to assign all 10 of their annual votes to SPSSI/Division 9 on the APA COR Apportionment ballot sent by APA each fall.
