Volunteer with Your Association
Quality volunteers are the bricks that hold non-profit organizations together. We couldn’t survive without you!
PAA needs you to help advance the science-based profession of psychology and promote the well-being and potential of all Albertans.

Dedicated PAA volunteer, Dr. Christopher Armstrong, said: (of the Greater Edmonton Teachers Convention) “It was a good time! (as always) It’s great to talk-shop with teachers…and to bump into those whom I’ve worked with over the years. I’ll be looking forward to the next one!” (of the Edmonton Regional Science Fair) “I have never seen so much ‘CUTE’ under one roof, the energy is incredible…and at the end of the day, you know that you’ve been a part of something that these kids will always carry with them”
