Why Your IPA Vote is Essential: It is critical for the future of psychoanalysis in North America that Board Representatives are elected who will work together collaboratively for the benefit of all IPA members. Issues are coming before the IPA Board that have major implications for APsaA. Please vote in this IPA election so your views will be represented. Some of the important questions being considered by the IPA Board are;
▪ Should APsaA retain its IPA Regional Association designation and the ability to admit institutes without additional IPA review?
▪ Should the Eitingon Training Model be modified to permit analysis at a frequency of 3-5 sessions a week, as is the case with its other training models?
▪ Should IPA dues be assessed for APsaA senior life members, who are currently dues exempt?
