  • We are exploring the use of “Authorize.net” to allow for bills (dues, tuition, registration) to be paid by credit card. You will be receiving a survey seeking your opinions on this issue.
  • Chicago Meetings – following are three additional issues that were

discussed at the national meetings in Chicago:

4) Fundraising – The majority of Centers/Institutes have an annual appeal letter and an annual event to raise money for their organization. Across the board the majority of donors and/or attendees (85-95%) are members of the psychoanalytic community in the respective city. Even in those centers in which they successfully raise money annually, all except Dallas draw from reserves annually to cover expense.

5) Meeting Expenses – Uniformly other centers/institutes charge admission for all events. There is a reduced fee for members but there is always an attendance fee ranging from $10 - $250 depending on the event.

6) Community Outreach – Internally we have often thought community outreach meant events for community members. Other centers define community outreach as programs designed to draw in mental health professionals that aren’t currently active in the psychoanalytic community.

  • Firearm Violence – With the recent rise in firearm violence APsaA has

released the following position statement:
