Positions 2015-2016 

Dear Sport & Exercise Psychology Members,

As many of you know, there have been many changes with our Section in recent years. With change, comes re-organization, and a need to reach out to each of you to re-assess where you would like us to go with our Section and how we can better meet your own interests in being part of our group. It has been some time since we’ve checked in with you in this way and in due time, we will be asking specifically about these interests so that we can prioritize for this year and think about the possibilities for beyond, based on your wishes.

For this year, the Sport & Exercise Psychology CPA Section has committed to collaborate with the Canadian Sport Psychology Association (CSPA) to host pre-conference workshops on the practice of sport psychology during the Wednesday (June 8th) of our June 9-11th, 2016 conference in Victoria, BC. We have heard for some time that our practice members have had a desire for this type of hands-on activity and for both our Section and CSPA, it allows members to receive CE credits that those who practice require for their associated governing or credentialing bodies. We are very excited to come together on this initiative and we will also be planning networking activities along with a complimentary Section convention program. We invite you to submit your papers, posters, and oral presentations to make this a great opportunity to share the excellent work that our members have been involved in! We will be giving out our CPA Sport & Exercise Section Student Poster Award again based on those presenting at this conference. If members have ideas for symposiums or oral presentations that they wish to collaborate with others on, please follow-up with us to see about connecting with different members to prepare submissions together. The deadline is December 1st, 2015 to submit.

Finally, we have not yet announced the new executive members that applied for this year due to some minor changes. Those individuals that are not able to serve at this time have resulted in the following positions being available:

  • Interim Chair
  • Student Rep

Both these positions would run from the present time until the June conference in Victoria. If you are able to become involved in either of these positions, and/or any other task (such as conference abstract reviewer, advocacy, select committees), please click on the link below to indicate your choice of activities:


You may also send your interest and/or questions to Ms. Cara Bernard at: sections@cpa.ca by October 26, 2015.

We look forward to connecting with all of you throughout the year and making this upcoming conference collaboration a fun and educational adventure!
