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.
