Volunteer as a BCPA Affiliate
This is a new opportunity for BCPA affiliates to volunteer. The main aims of the Campus Representative are to:
- Invite students to join the Association as affiliates, and get involved in shaping the future of psychology in the province by joining a BCPA committee;
- Help us organize events on campus, functioning as the main volunteer liaison between BCPA and other students;
- Report to the Association and inform us about the needs and priorities of psychology students on their campus, possibly by being both affiliates of BCPA, and members of their campus’ Psychology Student Union.
If you are interested in becoming a Campus Representative for your university or college, please fill in this form. You will then be contacted with more information.
BCPA hosts a blog promoting advances in psychological science and practice through blog articles written in plain English, and accessible to anyone who has an interest in psychology and mental health.
All articles written for our blog go through an editing and moderation process that ensures that only high-quality articles are published. Therefore, as a writer you will be assisted by our team of volunteer editors and moderators.
The BC Psychologist is the quarterly publication of the BC Psychological Association. The publication is distributed to members of the Association who live throughout BC, and every July it is also mailed to all new registrants of the College of Psychologists of BC.
Anyone can contribute to the BC Psychologist, but we particularly value submissions by Registered Psychologists or psychology researchers. We also value perspectives from other service providers. Preference is given to writers from BC and to those who haven’t been published before in the BC Psychologist. Submissions should be original, and they must acknowledge all sources and be written according to APA style guidelines.
You will work with our Assistant Editor and our Executive Editor, and the final submission will be subject to the final approval of our Editor in Chief. We will add you to our list of writers, and you will receive periodic reminders about upcoming deadlines, suggestions of books or papers to comment on, and more.
The members who are part of BCPA committees are all volunteers. The staff is responsible for offering logistical support to these Committees. However, it is the committees’ and task forces’ mandate to organize new initiatives with the support and direction of the Board of Directors.
Committee members make an effort to participate at meetings in person or through teleconferencing. All committees have a BCPA director as one of their members, in the role of Board liaison or chair.
If you are interested in volunteering for a couple of hours to help host one of our community events or workshops, please fill in this form. We will contact you with more information.
