KPA Dinner – Chairman’s Speech – Friday Dec 6, 2013

I wish to add that we have moved in leaps and bounds over the last couple of years. The journey is just beginning and this is why we all need to be involved in making this Association bigger and better. We can only grow and thrive if all here: students of psychology, professors, and practitioners; take an active role in growing this Association. Talk about KPA to your friends, engage us in your University: and in this regard, congratulations to KU and Nairobi University for holding psychology student days when many of you joined up as members. “Never ask: What can KPA do for me. Instead ask: What can I do for KPA?”
