Dear Friends and Colleagues of SIP
Welcome to the webpage of the Central Office of the Interamerican Society of Psychology. In this section you will find all information related to the administration of the organization. The Central Office is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. From there, we manage all matters having to do with the membership, with the Board of Directors, work groups and General Secretary. The Central Office is managed by a General Secretary, who is appointed by the President of SIP, with a part-time assistant to help with administrative tasks.
Membership in SIP covers one calendar year (from January through December). You can renew your membership for a period one or two years, with the exception of student memberships, which expire annually.
The period of renewal begins in October of each year, even though you can make payment for dues at any time of the year. The membership payments received between January and June of each year are applied to the actual year in which payments are made. The payments received after the beginning July are applied to the succeeding year—in which case the benefits of membership will be enjoyed beginning in January of the succeeding year.
The structure of dues in this table shows their relation to the regions served by SIP, the professional level of members and the membership period in which they are interested.
Everyone who during the year for which membership is being sought is enrolled in courses leading to a professional degree is considered to be a student. Such persons must include with their application for membership official evidence of registration or matriculation; also admitted as evidence would be a letter of certification from a school Director of Dean. A student identification card is not sufficient evidence, even though such cards might be included. Student membersships must be renewed annually.
