Reciprocal Fee Arrangement Between SWAP and Division 35 of the American Psychological Association

The Society for the Psychology of Women (SPW; APA Division 35) and the Section on Women and Psychology (SWAP; CPA) have entered into a reciprocal fees arrangement such that any member of SWAP may join SPW (Division 35) for $15.00 USD. This fee applies to all categories of membership. Such members would receive four issues of the Psychology of Women Quarterly published annually as well as the four annual issues of the SPW Newsletter, and enjoy full rights and privileges of membership. SWAP members who are not full members of APA are also eligible for SPW membership but may not vote in division elections for APA representatives. Note that the membership renewal schedule for SPW follows the calendar year as does APA membership. If you are interested in this offer, please follow this link to the application form.

SWAP members are invited automatically to join the Canadian Feminist Psychology (CanFemPsyc) Listserv each year and can choose to accept or decline the invitation. This group provides a forum for announcements and discussion related to feminist psychology in Canada.
