Committees are an integral part of the work of NCPA. Each committee is made up of volunteers who have an interest and passion to assist NCPA by enhancing and improving the field of psychology. 

All of our committees typically meet virtually. Thus, no matter where you are located in NC, you can join and be a part. 

Please contact us and let us know if you have an interest in any of the below committees. We will let you speak with the committee chair, staff, and even "visit" one of the meetings to see if it is a good fit for you.
