The Board of Trustees held a very productive meeting in Arlington, Va., in mid-December, with a great spirit of collaboration and teamwork. The Report From the President was early on the agenda, which gave me a chance to update the Board on some of my APA activities. I have set up weekly phone calls with Dilip Jeste, APA president-elect, and with Jay Scully, APA medical director, and I have regularly scheduled calls with Ann Sullivan, speaker of the Assembly, and with the Executive Committee, allowing us to stay focused on priority concerns such as the federal deficit-reduction efforts, developments in health care reform, maintenance of certification and maintenance of licensure issues, scope-of-practice concerns, DSM-5, and more. I have also been traveling quite a bit to attend meetings and make presentations at state association and district branch meetings, which has been enormously rewarding. I’ve been able to meet many members I hadn’t previously known and to learn about local concerns and a lot of good work being done at the state and local levels.
