Emerging Leaders Program


Meet the 2018-19 Emerging Leaders Class

The Pennsylvania Psychological Association (PPA) Emerging Leaders Program seeks graduate students and/or Early Career Psychologist (ECP) members of PPA to join this hands-on, highly experiential leadership development opportunity designed specifically for promising state association leaders. This year-long experience will refine and strengthen the leadership skills of those selected for this dynamic program.

The ultimate goal of the program is to identify and nurture future generations of PPA psychologist leaders.

A significant effort will be put into bringing a diverse group of emerging leaders into the program. Early Career Professional is defined by PPA as those who are within the first ten (10) years of receipt of their doctorate or a School Psychologist designation

The participants can expect to receive three sessions of leadership training and orientation to governance. In addition, each participant will have an experienced leader who will coach them through the implementation of a Leadership Action Learning Project. Finally, selected participants will have their PPA2020 Convention registration fee waived for Friday and one overnight room.

  • Waived Convention registration fee for Friday and one overnight room
  • Quarterly leadership training workshops
  • Exposure to psychologists and psychology leaders throughout the state
  • The opportunity to expand leadership potential and explore leadership opportunities through PPA
  • Ongoing support and mentorship by a member of the PPA Board of Directors or General Assembly
