The purpose of HAIOP is to promote the exchange of scientific, empirical, practical, theoretical, and/or conceptual information and concerns between members of the industrial/organizational psychology community in the greater Houston area.  The organization serves as an open forum where members can discuss topics in the human resource and related industrial/organizational fields of mutual interest and concern. Membership in HAIOP is open to all human resource professionals in the greater Houston area having an interest in the application of industrial/organizational psychological principles. 

Meetings typically take place about once every month or two months and are usually held on Monday nights at Rice University. Each meeting is preceded by an informal social hour where members can meet, network, and discuss issues of common interest. The actual meetings last about one hour and feature a main speaker or speakers discussing a range of issues of interest to the membership. Below is a partial list of representative topics presented at previous meetings (see our meeting schedule for previous years for more details):

  • Age and Work
  • Experience Sampling Research
  • Workplace Diversity
  • Executive Coaching
  • Working with Consultants
  • Conducting Organizational Surveys
