Dear SFPA member,
Congrats! You made it to 2021 - happy new year!!!
To celebrate, the SFPA Board is cordially inviting you to join us for our inaugural zoom holiday party next Friday, January 8th, from 4-6pm.
Join us for a fun evening of chatting with colleagues new and old as well as raffles, prizes, and a scavenger hunt. We will recognize the hard work of our 2020 executive board, led by Dr. Akiko Kaji, and we will also announce the winners of the early renewal contest.
To further sweeten the deal, the first 20 members to hop on the call will receive a surprise doorbuster giftcard!
We will try to stick to this rough timeline:
4:00-4:30 - welcome and introduction to 2021 SFPA Board Members
4:30-4:45 - Raffle / prize winners announced / Psychologists of the Year Recognized
4:45-5:00 - Migrate over to Gather.Town for more fun and games and a scavenger hunt!
We will start off the festivities on Zoom and then move to the platform gather.town for the rest of the mingling and socializing / happy hour of the evening.
If you haven‘t used this platform before, you are in for a treat! Think early 2000s gameboy. You‘ll be assigned a customizable avatar. Use your arrow keys to move around. As you approach other people, your video/audio chat will open automatically. This is how you‘ll be able to interact with others in small groups or for one-on-one conversations. Your video chatbox will close when you walk away.
If you know if any friends or colleagues who are psychologists or allied mental health professionals, please feel free to invite them as your guest.
