MPA Listservs

MPA, in conjunction with APA, offers MPA members access to and participation in a variety of online discussion listservs. In order to participate in any of the listservs, you must be an MPA member who has a license from the Minnesota Board of Psychology (or other state board of psychology), or a student member who is a graduate student in a psychology program, and must be a member of the listserv’s division.

Please review APA's listserv rules here.

MPA Listserv Policy Update 

At Saturday’s 4/9/2022 MPA Governing Council meeting, a motion was passed allowing for less restrictions on the MPA listservs. We realize that it can be a service to our members to have information about CE events, job postings, and community events. Per APA listserv policy, members can share links to CE events related to psychology, community events related to psychology, and job postings for psychologists in the state of Minnesota. These changes are similar to listservs of other state psychological associations and APA Divisions.
Per listserv guidelines, posts should not be used for commercial purposes: “ 'Commercial' as used for purposes of evaluating listserv messages means communications whose primary purpose is to advance the business or financial interests of any person or entity, or otherwise to promote a financial transaction for the benefit of the author directly or indirectly. Examples of prohibited communications include advertisements for products or services, notices regarding rental of office space, or direct solicitations of listserv members to purchase products or services.”

When posting a job or a CE event, we ask that you only post once. Additionally, please consider paying for an ad in the MPA classified section. It will be visible there for 30 days. 

Please send questions and feedback to Sharon Stein McNamara at [email protected]
