New members, both students and professionals, join the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) every year. These new members are often invited by peers and advisors to travel to and participate in the annual conference. However, once they pay their annual dues and registration fee, and arrive at the AASP conference, they are essentially on their own to meet others and begin networking. Socially and professionally, this may feel like a daunting task. It is the charge of this committee to welcome all new members and first time conference attendees in a way that sustains membership as well as participation in the association’s annual conference.
MISSION: The Hospitality Committee will provide social and professional reception to all new members, in order that they feel welcomed and informed regarding the association and the annual conference.
Hospitality Committee Chair: Sheila Alicea
