For those who have paid and registered but cannot find your name in the list, please email us at email@example.com your scanned copy of deposit slip or proof of payment (official receipt) and registration form. For those listed with pending payments, no registration forms please settle this asap to avoid delays in claiming your Official Receipts and Souvenir kits on August 21, 2014.
We also wish to inform you that although registration is still ongoing, PAP will no longer accept your sent deposit slips via email after the 3:00 pm extended deadline today to give the PAP Secretariat ample time to finalize the list and kits in preparation for going to CDO. For those whose Registration Forms and Proof of Payment are not sent to PAP by this deadline, you might have to expect some delay and inconvenience in processing your registration on Day 1 of the convention. In order to facilitate Onsite Registration, please be sure to bring your completed registration form and proof of payment on August 21, 2014.
We all look forward to seeing you in Cagayan de Oro City!

In light of the small number of oath takers, the Psychological Association of the Philippines and the Professional Regulatory Board of Psychology have jointly decided to simplify the Oath Taking Ceremony on August 21, 2014 from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm at Xavier Sports and Country Club. Dress code will be semi-formal (no blue jeans please). Registration is P500 each (if you have guests, each also pay P500). PAP will issue a refund in CDO to those who earlier paid the registration of P1,000. Cocktails will be served. The PRB of Psychology will administer the oath.
For those newly registered psychologists and psychometricians who have not yet registered with PRC, please do so if you intend to join the oath taking in Cagayan de Oro on August 21, 2014.
We look forward to seeing you in Cagayan de Oro.
