The Metropolitan New York Association for Applied Psychology (METRO) was founded in 1939 as a not-for-profit professional association. We are the oldest and largest local professional association of applied psychologists in the U.S. METRO also takes pride in serving as a role model for other applied psychology organizations now operating in Chicago, Houston, Washington, D.C., Southern California, and Arizona. We look back over the years with gratitude to our numerous colleagues -- our members, distinguished speakers, and officers -- all of whom contributed their time, energy, and expertise to make METRO the dynamic organization it is today.

METRO's Mission

  • To promote and maintain high standards among professionals in the applied psychology field.
  • To help the advancement of applied psychology as a science and profession.
  • To further educate our members, colleagues in adjacent disciplines, and the public at large.
