Members are the heart and soul of SIOP and are greatly appreciated for their interest and contributions. An impressive list of distinguished members has been with the Society for 25 years or more. To recognize the contributions and loyalty of these dedicated members, SIOP has developed an initiative called the Sterling Circle. Sterling Circle members are honored in several ways and can be identified at SIOP events with a special ribbon on their badges. Learn more about the Sterling Circle here.
Following is a list of SIOP’s newest Sterling Circle Members.* See the complete list on the SIOP website!

In my Penn State office I keep a copy of the very first SIOP conference program from Chicago, April 10-11, 1986. It is modest, only 16 pages of listed talks on 8 X 11.5 folded stock, more like a big brochure when compared to the modern day volume. I attended and was a discussant on a symposium but what is most memorable about those couple of days more than 30 years ago was the spirit of excitement for our new venture and the bringing together of so many colleagues who have become good friends over all those years. What is special about SIOP is just that, your colleagues are your friends whether you see them regularly at your office or if the time together is only annual, wherever the conference convenes. SIOP is truly a society that works because people care about each other. Older members mentor newer members. Those with experience in a specific area are eager to share their knowledge with others. As a group we are generous with our time, expertise and funding. In Judaism there is a concept, "l'dor vador," which literally translates "from generation to generation." To me SIOP is about actively passing on what we know and what we do to keep learning, to keep growing, and to keep our traditions alive.

The life blood of any organization lies in attracting new members who bring a special enthusiasm and interest. Membership in SIOP is growing, and we take great pleasure in welcoming our newest members. They comprise a wonderful mix of former Student Affiliates upgrading to full membership and professionals, including those who previously were Associate members and International Affiliates. SIOP looks forward to these new members’ participation on committees and conferences as they experience the value of membership in the premier organization for industrial and organizational psychologists.
