    NAIOP MAIDEN SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE AND GENERAL MEETING HELD AT UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN BETWEEN 20TH – 21ST OF JULY, 2017

 

 

The Nigerian Association of Industrial and Organisational Psychologists (NAIOP) was formally established on Wednesday, 25th November, 2015 during the 2015 Annual Scientific Conference and AGM of the Nigeria Psychological Association held at Precious Palm Royal Hotels, Benin City, Nigeria. Since then the NAIOP has continued to build on its main purpose – enhancing employee wellbeing and performance. In that conference alone, the division established different platforms (see below) to ensure that her members were always in communication and could easily get information from the leadership of the division.

In 2016, during the 2016 Annual Scientific Conference and AGM of the Nigeria Psychological Association held at the Auditorium of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, the I/O Division held its first election. Prof Benjamin Osayawe Ehigie was elected as the National Coordinator of the Division, while Dr Anthony Nnedum was elected as Secretary. Other officers include Dr Richards Ebeh (Publicity Secretary), Dr Aondoaver Ucho (Financial Secretary) and Dr. Catherine Chovwen (Treasurer)

As fallout of the Divisional meeting at Awka, the Division agreed to hold a maiden I/O Psychology Conference and General Meeting at the University of Ibadan in 2017. The conference which was held between 19th – 22nd July, 2017 was a huge success to both research in Nigeria I/O Psychology and development of the Division. Plans for the 2018 NAIOP Conference and General Meeting scheduled for Benue State University, Makurdi are seriously ongoing.

Currently, the Division has commenced formal membership with standardized requirements for attaining membership. The Foundation Membership certificates and plaques were presented to the NAIOP’s first crop of registered members during the 2017 Annual Scientific Conference and AGM of the Nigeria Psychological Association held at Abuja. Information on modes of registration and the different membership categories can be obtained from our different channels of communication.
With the current zeal and focus of the present crop of I/O Divisional leadership and members, the NAIOP is posed to achieve its main goal of enhancing employee wellbeing and performance in Nigeria and beyond.
