As the end of the academic year is approaching, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank analysts who have given generously of themselves in leadership positions over the past several years. Michael Windholz, a member of the Management Team and Chair of the Academic and Applied Psychoanalysis, Advocacy and Research Division, Paul Ransohoff, co-chair of the Ethics Com- mittee, Jan Baeuerlen, co-Chair of the Committee on Child Anal- ysis, and Linda Bartlett, Chair of the Low Fee Referral Service are all stepping down from their positions on June 30.
It is also our opportunity to welcome those analysts who are beginning their terms of service. As of July 1, the following will begin three year terms of service: Paul Ransohoff, will join the Management Team as Chair of the Research Division; Dena Sorbo begins service as co-chair of the Ethics Committee with Bob Epstein; Marsha Silverstein will become co-chair of the Committee on Child Analysis, sharing this responsibility with Tina Lapides; and Alan Kessler will begin his tenure as Chair of the Low Fee Referral Service. While I don’t have the names of all the committee members and chairs who are stepping down at the end of June, I wish to thank all who give of their time for the betterment of our organization.
