Students and NMPA 

NMPA is invested in enhancing services and support to graduate students and promoting student leadership opportunities. We are early in the process of building a graduate student presence. We are excited that graduate students joining the organization now are shaping their roles in NMPA as well as the services and activities NMPA offers.

We have many ways to become involved. Just last year, we hosted a panel discussion on early career challenges and opportunities, the Fall conference included a poster session open to graduate students and early career psychologists, and campus events were held at UNM and NMSU. Even if you are not a member, the majority of our graduate student and early career events are open to non-members. Please check this website periodically for event updates.

New Mexico Graduate Student Representatives

NMPA has appointed graduate student Member-In-Training Representatives who disseminate information on campus, represent students, and share student interests and feedback with NMPA leadership. They help plan, coordinate and attend events. In addition, they assist students to identify and access resources across the state and country.

The State Advocacy Coordinator was nominated by NMPA and appointed by the American Psychological Association for Graduate Students (APAGS) to keep graduate students informed of federal-level legislative issues.  She also serves on the NMPA Legislative Committee.  She recruits campus representatives for APAGS and encourages students to participate in grassroots efforts to influence policy decisions that impact the practice of psychology.
