Who are the 246 members of the Assembly? Every district branch (DB) has an Assembly representative, and DBs get another representative for each multiple of 450 members that they exceed. Thus, there are 112 Assembly representatives from our 74 DBs. DBs with fewer than 450 members (that is, with only one Assembly representative) have a deputy representative as well, accounting for 54 people in this category. From each of the seven Areas come a representative and deputy representative. Also included are 14 members-in-training, 14 early career psychiatrists, and 14 members from minority and other underrepresented groups. At this time, 17 allied psychiatric organizations also send liaisons to the Assembly. The remaining slots are filled by Assembly officers and three past speakers. APA Area trustees and officers of the Board also usually attend Assembly meetings.
