Coordinator's Update

Perhaps the most important piece of information to convey is that Colleen Loomis is our new membership coordinator. Colleen really came to the rescue and deserves a great deal of thanks for taking on this responsibility. We also discussed the possibility of seeking institutional status, perhaps connecting ourselves to one of the divisions; SPSSI and division 26 were mentioned. But there was no agreement upon which of the two would be better. We decided to continue the discussion in Monterey. We also agreed that if RadPsyNet did, eventually, gain an institutional status within the APA we would periodically stop and ask ourselves what effect the institutional status was having upon us as an organization, weigh the beneficial effects against the deleterious ones and consider disaffiliating if institutional status seemed to do more bad than good.

Neil Wollman came up with an interesting suggestion: He recommended that at Monterey, we look over the APA schedule and form groups that would attend and critique various presentations
