Editorial Introduction

Robert L. Tyson, M.D.

This administration is pleased to re-establish the IPA Bulletin after an unfortunate lapse. The great value of the Bulletin lies in it being the official means of communication with the Membership, and as an archive of the salient IPA activities of the preceding year. In this Bulletin, the Secretary's Report to the Business Meeting in Santiago covers everything up to that point, July 1999. From the point of view of the Central Office, a major change took place after the Santiago Congress, on 1 January 2000, when Piers Pendred, the IPA's first Director General, took office. A highly experienced and sophisticated manager, Piers has brought a worldwide organisational background with the British Council to the advantage of the IPA. With professional management, the elected officers will be much better able to concentrate on psychoanalytic issues and on the mission of the IPA.

We are fortunate in having a competent and dedicated staff in Broomhills that has made it possible for the IPA to continue its work at a high level during the sometimes stressful transitions of the past two years. These changes included a radical reorganisation of the IPA's legal, financial and tax circumstances, fundamental improvements in administrative support resources, and instituting innovative programmes in several of the IPA's major committees. Those committees and their chairs include, among others, the Committee on Inter-Regional Conferences—chaired by Sara Zac de Filc; the Committee on Psychoanalysis and Society—chaired by Claudio Eizirik; the Committee on Psychoanalytic Research—chaired by Peter Fonagy; and the Research Advisory Board—chaired by Robert Wallerstein. The work of those mentioned and of many others will assure the IPA and psychoanalysis of an increasingly important role in the world of the twenty-first century.
