The Georgia Psychological Association (GPA) seeks to support and benefit all psychologists in State of Georgia. Founded in 1946, GPA has approximately 950 members statewide. GPA sponsors comprehensive program of continuing education, offers ethics consultations, provides a referral service, provides a means to allow psychologists to communicate with colleagues, plans and organizes an Annual Meeting, aids members with insurance and managed care concerns, and facilitates access to low cost legal consultation for members. GPA also retains a lobbyist who works on issues which impact psychology. GPA strives to enhance the quality of service to the communities in which member psychologists live and work.

Our mission is to work to enhance and protect the profession of psychology in the State of Georgia, and in so doing to improve the mental health and well- being of Georgians. We envision GPA serving as the preeminent resource and advocate for Georgia psychologists to achieve both professional success and the enhancement of the mental health and well-being of the people of Georgia. We provide a wide range of services and benefits to our members including Professional Development, Education, Advocacy, Networking/Connecting, Consultations, Public Awareness, and Referrals.

The Georgia Psychological Association’s Board of Directors is composed of seven elected officers, appointed Committee chairs, the Board of Examiners Liaison and the GPA Executive Director. The Board of Directors is charged with governance, setting policy and oversight of the fiduciary management of the association. All officers serve as voting members of the Board in addition to one vote for each directorate, resulting in 14 total votes.

The Board meets at least five times per year and provides a report of accomplishments to the membership at the Annual Business Meeting each spring.
