The 2018 CPA Annual Convention was held in conjunction with the 2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology. In addition to this International Gathering of Psychologists and Psychological Researchers, SOGII hosted an International LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference Convention on June 24th and 25th, 2018. This two-day event brought together the leading LGBTQ Psychology Researchers from across the globe to share advances relevant to moving LGBTQ Psychology research forward. More than 115 delegates attended the conference from 79 different cities around the world - spread out across more than 20 countries! Two full days of programming were presented by researchers at all career stages from undergraduates to tenured research chairs. To learn more about what was presented look up the #Preach2018 hashtag on Twitter or visit our OSF Meetings page (if you presented at the conference and would like to add your presentation documents to the OSF page, you can continue to do so at any time - just visit the page for more instructions).
