How do I put professional affiliations on a CV?
I am currently a grad student in Psychology. I have heard that many professors like to see a list of 'Professional Affiliations' on a potential employee's CV, because it is an easy way to see whether the two people have common interests.
My question is, are there any guidelines for what I can realistically put there? Should I just list conferences in which I am a current, paying dues member; or can I put any conference in which I've paid dues in the past? Or can I be even less strict that these guidelines?
These professional bodies often arranges conferences which anyone can attend, so registering for the conferences does not mean that one is a member of a organizing body. Conference participation information may be put into your publication list as conference papers and/or given talks section.
So, You should only list the organisations as professional affiliations of which you are a member.
What about research collaborations? Are these to be considered professional affiliations too?
sorry i wasn't explicit-- at all the conferences i've presented (so far), i've been required to first become a member. but your advice is to only list those which i am a -current- paying member, correct?
