President's Report

Bart Magee, Ph.D.

As I look toward the end of my term as NCSPP president, I would like to share a few of my thoughts on the current state of the organization and give you my perspective on where we are heading. In my report to you in the spring issue of fort da, I discussed a number of projects in development at NCSPP that I believe are designed to further our mission and help insure that psychoanalytic psychology remains a lively and relevant discipline for both our professional community and the community-at-large.

In order to realize our goals, we must remain healthy as an organization. In this regard, I am pleased to report that our financial footing remains sound. As you can see from the Annual Financial Report printed in the Treasurer's Report later in this issue, we ended the fiscal year with positive financial results. Credit for this goes to our treasurer Mary Paige, Psy.D., as well as to the entire Board of Directors. As notoriously number-shy we may be as clinicians, I am proud of our efforts to maintain a diligent focus on our budget, and of our thinking together to discover new ways to provide programs and services as efficiently as possible.

In terms of numbers, our membership has stayed strong. We hold steady at 600 members and associates. Earlier in the year we saw a decrease in membership that resulted from some confusion and one-time added costs related to our switch to rotating membership renewal. (We instituted this change to increase efficiency and cut costs by smoothing out the work load of our administrator.) The dip in membership was temporary, and we have again returned to our previous levels. But the true strength of our membership goes beyond numbers and is measured in our members' energetic dedication to our mission and associated programs. From your lively contribution to educational programs, to your creative work on committees, to your faithful service on the Board, your commitment is the true source our strength.

Now I'd like to tell you of some of the fruits of your energy and dedication. In the last issue of fort da, I reported on NCSPP's founding of the Access Institute for Psychological Services as an independent non-profit organization.
