11:30 am to 1 pm via Zoom
This annual event was started several years ago by the Early Career Psychologists patterned after a similar type of welcome to the profession celebration for lawyers. Those who have received their license within the past two years were invited by special invitation. A member of the Examining Board of Psychology is invited to attend the celebration and answer any questions from the newly licensed attendees. Following the celebration, Dr's Andrew Benjamin and Stephan Feldman provide a free 1 CE Ethics workshop.
