Welcome, Leaders!

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

IPPA’s divisions play a vital role in advancing the science and research-informed applications in our field. Specifically, divisions:

  • Develop thought leadership and best practices
  • Bridge research and practice
  • Help members learn, connect and collaborate.
  • Share the findings of positive psychology with other professions

As a division leader, you play an essential role in leading volunteers, serving members, and advancing strategic efforts. This toolkit is meant to give you tools and resources you need to succeed.

Take a moment to review the toolkit contents. You will find important policies and procedures, as well as best practices for 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,

Jenny Brennan, Director of Year-Round Programming
