Map of Florida countiesFPA was founded in 1947 for the purpose of bringing psychologists together to advance common interests. What started as a small group of psychologists, FPA has grown to represent over 1,100 members. The association has nine Regions in order to facilitate the delivery of important services to the members on a more direct, personal level. Membership in the local region is automatic upon admission into FPA – there are no additional dues to pay and many Region events are free to members. FPA members are assigned to a Region depending upon their work or home residence. Below are the FPA Regions and the counties they serve.
