Regional Conferences




Ecological-Community Psychology (ECO) conferences are regional events, usually organized by graduate students, that allow community psychologists and other like-minded people from applied and academic settings to gather. Sometimes, these events are stand-alone meetings, and sometimes they happen within a larger conference. For 2015, ECO conferences will occur in the following regions:
