Annual Meeting Highlights
Minority, Underrepresented Groups Share Concerns Through Caucuses
Psychiatric News
Volume 42 Number 4 page 30-30

Psychiatrists who identify with one of APA's recognized minority and underrepresented groups are urged to join that group's caucus and attend its meeting at APA's 2007 annual meeting in San Diego in May (see below). The minority/underrepresented group caucuses were established to provide a networking opportunity and foster communication among members who share a special interest.

The caucuses also provide a means for bringing their members' concerns to the APA leadership and making APA members aware of unique issues affecting particular groups of patients and psychiatrists.

At the yearly caucus meetings, members advocate for minority patient populations, discuss social and health-related issues, and explore concerns related to professional growth and advancement for members.

There are caucuses for the following groups:

Participation in the APA caucuses, which is free, is for APA members who identify themselves as a member of one of APA's minority and underrepresented groups. Members can enroll in only one of the seven caucuses, but they can change caucus affiliation at any time if they identify with more than one of the minority and underrepresented groups.

There are three ways to join a caucus.
