The Nominating Committee, led by Dr. Nada Stotland, worked hard to develop a diverse slate of superb candidates for you to consider, and the Elections Committee, led by Dr. Kathy Mogul, is overseeing the campaigning process. We are in debt to them for their diligent efforts. The slate is made up of individuals with excellent qualifications for APA office. They represent different backgrounds in psychiatry and diverse APA and district branch experiences. As such, they do present real alternatives for you, and they offer opportunities for all of us to determine the shape of APA for years to come. I appreciate the willingness of all of them to serve as candidates.
