Welcome, Leaders!

We are so grateful for your service to IPPA and the field of positive psychology!

As a division leader, you play an essential role in the organization. We have developed this toolkit to give you tools and resources to help you succeed.

Take a moment to review the toolkit contents. You will find important policies and procedures for communicating with your members and engaging with outside groups, as well as several “How to” manuals detailing best practices to recruit strong volunteer teams and deliver engaging educational value.

If you ever have a question that is not addressed here, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

All the best,
