I encourage all of you to join the APA if you are not already a member. In addition, I strongly urge all of you residents and early career psychiatrists to get involved with the APA at the local level through your "district branch," your local APA organization. It is at the local level that you will be exposed to a variety of opportunities for leadership roles and mentorship possibilities. And it is at the local level where we better understand how we can have more of an impact in our field and for our patients. My involvement with the APA locally and nationally and my attendance at the annual meetings has fueled my career and my passion for psychiatry tremendously.
I hope to see you all in Hawaii for APA 2011!!!
