Steal the Logo!

Advertise your membership in CAMPP by listing your membership on your Department's or Program's website. "Steal the Logo!" means putting the distinctive CAMPP logo on your website - it's easy. Go to the CAMPP website, position the cursor over the logo, right click and SAVE the image onto your harddrive - then just import it to your web pages as you would a photograph. Or, steal it from the electronic LFC!

NAMP Conference

NAMP, the Northamerican Association of Masters in Psychology, is the professional association for M.A.-level practitioners in Psychology - it's the association that our graduates join. NAMP will hold its annual conference at the end of October, in Charlotte, NC. Please contact Margaret Joyal, margaretj@wcmhs.org for more information. CAMPP's and NAMP's respective Executive Committees held a joint meeting in Wichita, KS, October 2004, to discuss ways of increasing their collaboration and mutual support. Both committees agreed to continue having liaisons from each association to attend the other's Executive Committee meetings. CAMPP member programs are encouraged to inform their students about this professional association and the benefits of membership. For further information, go to http://www.enamp.org

Farewell to Gary Hanson

t is with sadness that we announce Dr. Gary W. Hanson's death. He was a champion of masters level education and had maintained the CAMPP listserv. He was currently serving as Chair of the Masters in Psychology Accreditation Council (MPAC). Gary was Chair of the Psychology Department at Francis Marion University for 11 years and was currently serving as Vice-President for Administration at Francis Marion. His commitment to Psychology is well known. According Dr. John Hester, Chair of the Psychology Department, Francis Marion University, "despite his many administrative duties he remained very involved in our department." Gary had heart bypass surgery Thursday, May 5, 2005. Due to complications, he died the following weekend. 

Reminder to Member Programs

CAMPP's by-laws call for deleting programs from membership if dues have not been paid during the past two years. Make sure you've paid! Several programs have renewed because of these reminders - has your program paid its dues?

This newsletter is being sent not only to those master's programs that are members of CAMPP, but to a broad range of non-member programs as well. We want to let you know that we exist - if you didn't know this already - and encourage you to consider joining. CAMPP is more than simply a "one issue" organization - although that one issue, fostering the advancement of master's level training, including issues of practice and licensing, is central. Other important CAMPP issues involve the curriculum oversight and training standards, encouragement for master's programs to pursue accreditation through MPAC (Masters in Psychology Accreditation Council), and continued lobbying for acknowledgement of the important role served by M.A. training programs in psychology. In its meetings during September, 2001, the Executive Committee of CAMPP continued its discussion of another important issue, that of supervision standards and practices in M.A. training programs. Join CAMPP, the only national organization specifically devoted to issues of importance in applied master's training in psychology.
