The National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP) was founded in 1976 to enhance the quality of graduate training in professional psychology. NCSPP is an organization composed of delegates from member programs and schools of professional psychology.
During the council's summer and mid-winter meetings, delegates meet for several days to discuss national and international developments in the training and practice of professional psychologists, to develop standards for the education and training of professional psychologists, and to develop articles and position statements regarding public policy impacting the education and training of professional psychologists. Books, articles, and papers have been produced by Delegates as a result of these meetings.      These meetings provide a forum for information about the functioning of schools and programs of professional psychology. The council networks with other organizations with similar interests and goals, and offers consultation on the development and maintenance of schools and programs of professional psychology. NCSPP also initiates and supports the development of theory, research, evaluation, quality assurance methods, and programs in a variety of areas of professional psychology, and shares this information with the public and professional community. Membership within this organization costs $475 a year.
