It is hard to believe that summer has passed so quickly and we are all back preparing for another academic year. The Membership Division is looking forward to an exciting year with both our Annual Party and programs that address the needs and interests of our membership.

SFCP Profit and Loss July 2012 - 2013

SFCP Profit and Loss July 2012-2013

by Jeff Miller, Chief Operating Officer

The P&L shown below is the initial report for the fiscal year 2012-2013 that ended on June 30, 2013.  An audited version will be available later in this fiscal year.  We continue to operate a very tight budget and cash flow.  The majority of the net profit we show is the result of unpaid grant expenses to one of the Windholz Research Fund grantees.  This year we relied less on endowment funds to balance our budget taking $15K less than in the previous fiscal year. Without those funds and the funds SFCP receives for management of various funds in our investment portfolio we would be operating at a deficit.  The taking of these funds decreases our assets. I am working with the leadership to find ways to increase income and decrease expenses and end our dependency on our endowment to supplement operations.

Safety and Numbers

Safety and Numbers

By Zach Cowan, Chair, Board of Trustees

As you know, in light of recent concerns about security at 444 Natoma, the BOT has decided to hire a security guard through mid-December while a more sustainable and effective security plan is developed.

A number of members have asked why the BOT did not decide to keep a security guard for a longer period, given the status of the endowment and the success of the capital campaign.

Thank you for asking.

SFCP Business Meeting June 2013

SFCP Business Meeting June 2013

by Robin Deutsch, Ph.D.

The academic year seems to come and go in quite a flurry. We are at the end of our first year in our new building. Last year at the business meeting, we had raised half the amount of funds we needed and now we have brought our capital campaign to a successful conclusion. It seems such a short time ago that I was addressing this meeting as President-elect, about to be President and now I have completed the second of my three-year term. Within the past month, we held two graduations: one for our psychoanalytic candidates and the second, just last Saturday, for the graduates of our two adult psychoanalytic training programs. I’d like to bring you up to date on Management Team issues. The Management Team meets monthly to review and plan for the functioning of the Center. I’d like to highlight a few of this year’s decisions:
