Welcome to SIRC

SIRC is a society that brings together researchers and stakeholders committed to the rigorous evaluation of implementation of evidence based psychosocial interventions. Be sure to become a SIRC member (see below) and you will be added to our listserv for important announcements.

The third biennial conference marked the end of our NIMH funding. In anticipation of this transition period, SIRC has become a Society to provide the necessary infrastructure for sustaining its place in the implementation resource landscape, but we need your help. To support SIRC’s livelihood, we will begin charging for membership in January 2016. Membership will cost:

  • $175 annually for full members
  • $50 for students, with financial hardship scholarships available.

If you become a member before January 2016, you will be considered a SIRC Founding Member. You will be listed on the SIRC website and Twitter with recognition of your founding member status.

If you would like to pay your membership dues, please go to: 

SIRC members gain access to (1) a repository of D&I instruments, (2) a D&I resource library (under development), listserv updates, and a searchable membership database (coming soon!). 


If you have any questions about our SIRC webpage or the conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact us at sirc@uw.edu
