Unveiling the New Website!

Welcome to the new and improved AK-PA website. Our former website, graciously managed by Dr. Peter Strisik,  had many useful features, but had been become antiquated over the years. Our improved website is powered by the adaptable wordpress platform and was inspired by the state psychological associations of Pennsylvania, Nevada,  and Wyoming . We hope that wordpress will enable this site to adapt and grow in the years to come. So please enjoy the new website and be patient in the beginning.
