Dear MAPA Members and Friends,

For more than 60 years MAPA has been a resource to our Milwaukee community of psychologists. Our goal has been to create opportunities for interaction, networking, and educational engagement. Unfortunately over the last few years we have experienced a consistent decline in attendance, dwindling membership, and on several occasions have cancelled programming due to limited registration. This has occurred despite attempts to understand and meet the needs of our membership in creative and flexible ways.

MAPA is now at a critical decision-making point, and we are in need of your direct input. We invite you to attend a gathering on Friday, July 17th from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology to discuss the future of MAPA as an organization. We are specifically looking for individuals who are interested in becoming actively involved, who are willing to take on leadership positions, and who are interested in making the organization viable in the 21st century.

This meeting will be the final opportunity for your input and involvement. Without substantial attendance at this meeting the Board will proceed with dissolving MAPA. If you have ever given consideration to becoming involved, now is the time to take action.

Please give consideration to attending the July 17th meeting, and be sure to RSVP by Friday, July 10th to Lori Pyter at

Thank you for your time and consideration!
