[DIV28SUPER] day two

Dear Division 28 Colleagues-
The second day of convention started out with a standing-room-only crowd in the session on marijuana and the adolescent brain, an event we co-sponsored with Division 50. It was gratifying to see that this important topic could draw such a large audience first thing in the morning!
The day progressed with my presidential address and our annual business meeting. The business meeting was largely informational, but there are a few points I'd like to announce for those who were unable to attend. First, the division is in a strong financial position, thanks to the careful stewardship of our treasurer, Jane Acri. Second, planning is underway for the 2016 convention, where key programming will focus on celebrating our 50th anniversary. Third, we are seeking nominees for president and member-at-large for the 2016 slate, as well as Early Career Psychologist representatives with terms starting January 1, 2016. If you have interest in serving in any of these positions, please email me or Stacey Sigmon (stacey.sigmon@uvm.edu).
We closed out the day with a collaborative session on technology and our signature Early Career Investigator Poster Session, sponsored in partnership with Division 50, NIDA and NIAAA. The poster session is a terrific opportunity to showcase psychopharmacology and substance abuse research done by junior scientists. It also brings many new researchers to APA who otherwise might not attend!
We've got some great choices lined up for you in today's program, starting with a session on technology and substance use disorders, followed by multiple options at 10 AM: our collaborative session on sex, drugs and dopamine (again, this is in 716b, not 718b), a session sex differences in marijuana effects and exercise as a treatment for substance use disorders. Please keep an eye out for an automated email with the full program for today.
Hoping to see you at some of these events.
