 Bring the voice of psychology to the Capitol.


Join us for TPA's Legislative Day 

March 15, 2017

8 a.m. - 11 a.m.



The bills that come out of this legislative session will affect the future of the profession and practice of psychology in Texas. It is imperative that you, as a psychologist or a psychology student, meet with your legislators, share about your profession, and advocate for psychology. 

If they do not hear from you, they will listen to the professions and the individuals who they do hear from. 


Register today to join the Texas Psychological Association at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 15 for our first legislative day of the year. You will receive a full briefing and a packet of materials for your visits before your scheduled visits.
