PSI Annual General Meeting Rescheduled

Dear Member,
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Psychological Society of Ireland which was due to take place Saturday 15th of September had to be postponed due to a lack of a quorum present on the day. As stipulated by the Psychological Society of Ireland’s constitution, section 18.2, no business shall be transacted at any General Meeting unless the quorum is present when the meeting proceeds to business. As 25 members were not present the meeting was adjourned. The AGM has been rescheduled for 22nd of September and will take place at the PSI office, Grantham House. Registration will be at 14:00 and the meeting will commence at 14:30 sharp. 

The agenda will be the same as for the meeting of 15th September 2018  


Yours sincerely,

Dr William Kinsella

Honorary Secretary

2018 PSI Autumn Winter Public Lecture Series

We're delighted to relaunch our Autumn Winter Lecture Series from September through to December. The Autumn Winter Lectures are a series of public talks for anyone and from any background. Our lectures were warmly received in the past and we know that this year is sure to be another success. The PSI aims to make psychology accessible and all inclusive for the public; this year is no exception. We've got a wide range of fascinating topics from unique and inspiring presenters. To start off the series, Dr Cíara Losty will be presenting at Waterford Institute of Technology on the 27th of September. 


For more presenters and lectures to come over the Autumn Winter Series, keep an eye on your weekly e-zine and news updates. If you want to help promote the event share the upcoming lectures with colleagues, family and friends. We look forward to seeing you all there.
