In slightly more than the blink of an eye, another academic year has gone by; analytic graduation has passed and psychoanalytic psychotherapy graduation is soon to be upon us. It seems that such a short time ago, I was writing my first newsletter column as President, and now, I have arrived at my final newsletter column. On June 30, I will step down as SFCP President.

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.

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, we recently implemented a plan asking faculty, program and committee chairs to open and close the building in the evenings and weekends. We would like to apologize to the SFCP Community for the concern and dismay this decision and its implementation provoked. We are taking immediate steps to address the situation.

As many may know by now, Harriet Wolfe has been elected APsaA’s next President-elect. She received 71.3% of the vote, while Richard Lightbody, the other candidate for President-elect, received 28.7%.

It is a very generous act to give of one’s precious time to help our organizations. Whichever psychoanalytic camp one belongs to, Harriet and Richard should be thanked for their willingness to contribute time, energy, and thoughtfulness for our profession’s benefit. Speaking for myself, having APsaA’s new President-elect have so much experience evolving governance structures of psychoanalytic organizations can only be beneficial to APsaA.

Welcome to 2014! I hope each of you had a restful and enjoyable holiday season.

As you will be reading in the letter from Zach Cowan, Chair of SFCP’s Board of Trustees, finances and budgetary issues have featured prominently in Board discussions. This is so, too, in the Management Team. Through the Fall, the Management Team has worked diligently on developing several operational policies, consistent with the BOT’s direction in financial and budgetary policies.

Beginning with the 2014-15 budget, there will be a yearly cost of living increase for each of our educational programs. In addition, everyone who attends meetings or educational problems must pay the established fee with the exception of presenters, discussants, and faculty who are teaching on-going programs. Students or community members who volunteer to staff our one-day programs are also exempt from payment of program fees.

It’s my pleasure to welcome SFCP members to the beginning of the academic year. I hope that everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.

SFCP was well represented at the recent IPA meeting in Prague. I’d like to offer my congratulations to SFCP members who presented at the recent IPA meetings in Prague. Reviewing the Congress pro-gram, the following members either presented, chaired or served as panelists at the meetings: Meryl Botkin, Abbot Bronstein, Francesco Castellet y Ballara, Robin Deutsch, Bill Glover, Jeanne Harase-movitch, Audrey Kavka, Tina Lapides, Mali Mann, Mitch Wilson, and Michael Windholz. Harvey Peskin won the IPA’s 2013 Hayman Prize for published work pertaining to traumatized children and adults with his paper, entitled “Man is a Wolf to Man”. I apologize if I have inadvertently left anyone off the list.
