President's Report

Melissa Holub, Ph.D.

Developmental Context

I've heard it told that every Division 39 chapter that spawns a psychoanalytic institute, as NCSPP has PINC, loses its membership to the institute, the parent dying soon after childbirth. During rough financial years for NCSPP, some on the board have feared that NCSPP could be just another casualty of this mythic reality tale. This year we turn 23, having born PINC at the tender age of three. As someone who is attuned to organizational life, I am taken by the fact that NCSPP has survived some critical developmental milestones. In my years on its board, I have seen NCSPP move into an exuberant, if newly, consolidated identity; young adulthood has set in with vision and purpose.

At a time when so much in our world seems to be at a breaking point, NCSPP is a haven for me, an island of relative health and of calm. Our strategic plan of two years ago, headed by the valiant Adam Kremen, has continued to manifest successful outcomes regarding clarity of purpose, programming, and identity, while allowing us greater freedom and creativity. We are guided by our desire to reach out to our members in the community and to celebrate psychoanalytic psychology as its own arena, separate from psychoanalysis proper, and worthy of study in its own right.

Organizational Changes

We are in our second year of having a clear, funded job description for a Division 39 Representative and becoming more active and engaged with the greater Division 39. As the largest Division 39 chapter in the country, our lack of involvement has been notable, and we feel it very important to develop this relationship. We owe this current inspiration, so long in coming, to our President-Elect, Andy Harlem. On behalf of the NCSPP board of directors, Andy also successfully nominated our new Membership Chair, Cate Corcoran, for the Section IV (local chapters) Graduate Student Stipend for the Division 39 Spring Meeting. Cate and Andy will attend all Section IV meetings together at the upcoming April conference in San Antonio.
