 A Message from the President of NCAP
(Deleted from website on March 18, 2016)
The Northeast Counties Association of Psychologists (NCAP), a regional affiliate of the New Jersey Psychological Association (NJPA), represents licensed or license-eligible psychologists who live or work in Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic counties, and who are also members of NJPA  or the American Psychological Association (APA). We also welcome students who are enrolled in graduate programs in psychology, who are in school, live or work in Bergen, Hudson or Passaic counties.
NCAP offers members opportunities for professional development through educational programs, as well as through networking, service and leadership opportunities. As scientific and clinical knowledge continue to grow in our field, we strive to offer programs that will help our members stay current in their professional lives. In addition to continuing education and providing a place to come together and support one another, NCAP also offers a way to support our profession and those we serve through informing members about developments in our local, state and national arenas—including, for example, current developments and issues related to the Affordable Care Act as it evolves.
We hope all psychologists in Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic counties will join our association. If you are not yet a member of NCAP, please consider joining. You can fill out a membership form by going to the “Membership” link on the left-hand side of the webpage, and clicking on “Membership Application” to download a membership form. Additional benefits of membership are listed in the Membership section under “Membership Benefits.”
Thanks for visiting our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at:   joangf@hotmail.com or 201-784-0312
