Thank you so very much, Carolyn, for this and all your advice and mentorship. Last year, when I stood before you, I told you how honored and grateful I was for the opportunity to represent the Association and the principles and values for which it stands. My experiences as your president have confirmed these feelings in multiple ways and have reinforced my conviction that leadership is not possible without the help and support of many talented individuals. This has been a year of challenges and opportunities, of remarkable collaboration, and of a learning curve that has been exponential. I hope that the Association has benefitted from my leadership, but there has been no question that this has been a special experience for me. Therefore, it is with mixed emotions that I will turn the reins over to John Oldham, who has been a trusted colleague, friend, and advisor throughout this year. Although John and I have known each other for several decades, this opportunity to work together so closely has been rewarding, enjoyable, and educational. I am convinced that the interests of the APA are served best when we work together as a team and can benefit from the talent and creativity that such collaboration brings. I also want to thank the members of the Board of Trustees, the Assembly and its leadership, as well as district branch presidents and executive directors who truly keep "the home fires burning." And of course, I must acknowledge the dedication, commitment, and support of Dr. Jay Scully and the outstanding staff he leads in Washington, without whom there truly would be no APA. Finally, to my family, especially Arthur and Samantha, without your love, support, and guidance—and your willingness to put up with my distractibility and my travel—I could not stand before you today. I would also like to acknowledge two very special people in my life who were taken from me in the past few months and so could not be here to share in this celebration: Dr. Tana Grady-Weliky, the program chair for this meeting and my dear friend, and Dr. Stanley H. Bernstein, my physician father, both of whom fought courageous battles with cancer in much the same way that so many of our patients fight to overcome the challenges as well as the stigma of psychiatric illness.
