This is an extremely special time for me. It has been a humbling experience to have been nominated and accepted as President of the Association. I feel very honoured and grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to lead the association during the next presidential term. I will strive in every way to be worthy of your confidence and to fulfil my duties the best I can. In the coming months, my focus will be to transition and familiarize myself with the new role as president while continuing to uphold the association's mandate.
I would like to extend my gratitude to my predecessor and past-president, James Whetstone for his dedication and service to the Association. His guidance and leadership saw us through the tumultuous period of the Transitional Council and has positioned our Association to be a leading representative of psychotherapists and mental health service providers in the years to come.
I would also like to acknowledge and thank the outgoing and incoming board members as well as the Executive Director and staff; we have a group of committed individuals that have the skills and abilities to move the association to the next level. I look forward to the tasks ahead.
