The intrinsic value of membership is rewarding to the achiever in that recognition of excellence leads to self-fulfillment and thus to self-realization. By recognizing that what you do does make a difference, you are stimulated to higher productivity. Accomplishments are enjoyed more when shared with others. Furthermore, the contacts made through PSI CHI will be valuable throughout your educational and professional careers.
Concrete advantages of membership include:
Climaxing the benefits mentioned above is knowing that many individuals, by their caring, dedication, perseverance, and hard work, have made it possible to encourage young persons interested in psychology to strive for excellence - to reach toward that attainable star.
The ultimate test of the value of any membership organization lies in the accomplishments of its members. In each year of PSI CHI's history, more and more members have undertaken graduate studies. Now in its 67th year, PSI CHI is well represented in the professional ranks of all the behavioral sciences. The membership directories of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society are studded with the names of PSI CHI members, both active and alumni. This is only one example demonstrating that the Society's purposes are being fulfilled.
