Second, we have reconceptualized how our member-based components carry out their tasks. These councils, committees, and task forces do some of the most important work of the Association, and they have been an important locus for member involvement. The position statements, task force reports, resource documents, practice guidelines, and other products of APA emanate from these groups. When times were good, there was a tendency to set up a component to address every issue of concern, but that is no longer a sustainable strategy. Thus, Dr. Harding also appointed the Task Force on Component Reorganization, chaired by Marcia Goin, M.D., and Jon Gudeman, M.D., to rethink how our components do their work. The reorganization plan that they developed was adopted by the Board in March. It emphasizes giving more authority to 13 councils that will oversee broad areas of interest. Whenever possible, committees were converted to corresponding committees, which will meet in person at the annual meeting each year, but will otherwise do their work by conference call and e-mail. The estimated cost savings from this plan are approximately $700,000 a year.
