A reception for all supporters of APAPAC will take place during APA's 2005 annual meeting in Atlanta on Saturday, May 21, at the Omni Hotel. (APAPAC is APA's political action committee.) If you are not among that number yet, then rectify the situation by stopping by the APAPAC suite at the Omni Hotel. Your support is needed to help make APAPAC an integral part of APA's campaign to educate and influence Congress about the needs of the profession and your patients.

APAPAC provides the Association with a direct opportunity to support the election of federal candidates who will best advocate for psychiatry's interest in Congress.

With a new Congress before us, psychiatry faces a crucial time that will determine what protections are in place from abusive managed care practices for patients and the profession, protection of the privacy of medical records,the future of the Mental Health Equitable Treatment Act, medical liability reform, and reimbursement funding for psychiatrists. Your PAC support enables APA to increase its proactive education and lobbying campaign on these, and other, issues.

Information about joining APAPAC is posted online at APA's Web site at<www.psych.org/members/apapac/index.cfm>. Information is also available from APAPAC Manager Jason Pray by e-mail at jpray@psych.org or by phone (703) 907-8581.
