The 12th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference was a huge success, drawing our largest group of attendees ever (final count was more than 150 registrants!). The 2016 RCIO conference was focused on the arena of leadership, and presentations and discussions revolved around new theories, research, and applications of leadership-related topics. Participants from 15 universities and 5 non-academic organizations came together in Chattanooga for this excellent event. The conference presentations covered a wide range of topics associated with the theme and the more general practice of I-O psychology. A large poster session also showcased 31 studies, primarily with students as the lead researchers. An inspiring and well-received keynote address was provided by Dr. Bill Gentry of the Center for Creative Leadership on the topic of transitioning to leadership from an individual-contributor role.
