A reception for all supporters of APAPAC, APA's political action
committee, will be held during APA's 2006 annual meeting in Toronto on
Saturday, May 20, at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. If you are not among
that number yet, then please join your colleagues in supporting the PAC by
going to its Web site at<www.psych.org/members/apapac/index.cfm>.
Also during your stay in Toronto, stop by the APAPAC suite at the
Royal York and help make APAPAC an integral part of APA's campaign to
educate Congress about the needs of the profession and your patients.
APAPAC provides APA members with a direct opportunity to support
the election of federal candidates who will best advocate for psychiatry's
interest in Congress. In this election year, psychiatry will face crucial
challenges in Congress, and it is essential that we have the opportunity to
meet with and inform key legislators deciding a host of issues that will
affect your practice. Among them:
Your PAC support enables APA to continue to increase education and lobbying
efforts to key legislators on these and other issues that confront our
practice and patients.
