Welcome to the North East of England Branch of the BPS!
If you’re a BPS member who lives in the North East then you are automatically subscribed as one of our many regional members. We are an active and vibrant Branch representing Psychologists across the North East of England extending from the River Tweed to the Wash and from Hull to the borders of Lancashire.
The Branch officially came into being on 4th February 2003 when an open general meeting was held at York St John College to elect the committee and formally constitute our existence as part of the Society. The Branch has since worked tirelessly to promote the great work of Psychologists across the North East and to ensure Branch members have representation at all levels of the Society.
Our committee, which includes academic psychologists, practitioners and students, works to organise a range of events across the North East. Our Psychology in the Pub events have grown in frequency and popularity and our Annual Conference goes from strength to strength. The gradual expansion of the North East Branch Bulletin publication, which is sent out to all our members, is a great representation of the exciting work that’s going on across the North East.
If you’d like to contribute to the North East Branch Bulletin, have an idea for an event or you’d like to get involved with other Branch activities, get in touch!
