A major issue the Board will address is APA's governance. My guiding principle will be to vote for proposals that increase members' opportunities to impact the direction of APA. APA members' interest may reflect the state they come from; the subspecialty they practice; or more personal interests, such as gender, race, ethnic background, or sexual orientation. It is essential that many MITs and ECPs have a role in APA's governance. I have worked to make the Assembly more representative: among my efforts, I supported minority representation to be in the Assembly, was speaker of the Assembly when it voted to add MITs, and my speaker's report (1987) advocated bringing subspecialty organizations into APA governance. This expansion of providing members with representation must continue.
