Dear Members and Prospective Attendees of UC-NCP IPC meeting:
As you know, our annual meeting of the University of California/New Center for Psychoanalysis Meeting will be held at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead. The meetings are going to be a bit earlier this year than in the past: March 31-April 2, 2017.
The theme of the Conference this year is “Boundaries, Borders and Crossings.” A Call for Papers has already gone out, and I hope many of you will consider submitting a proposal.
Over the years we have relied on many of you, planning on attending, to pre-register and to pay the required fees as EARLY as possible. Many would write checks for next year on the last day of the Conference. For various reasons, we collected very few checks at that time. We have relied on those early contributions for our operating expenses during the year: most importantly, the deposit to the Conference Center to hold the week-end for us. I’m writing you all now, hoping you might be willing to pre-register now, so we have some money to cover our pre-conference expenses.
The rate for a Double Room (upstairs or downstairs in a lovely alpine-style condolet) is $460, the rate for a Single room is $520. I hope many of you are civic-minded enough to help UC-NCP IPC now by sending in your pre-registration check so we can secure the rooms and begin planning. I might add that last year we were able to return the registration back to those who had pre-registered and, for one reason or another, were unable to attend. We anticipate being able to do the same thing this year.
Pat Wright at NCP had administered all of the Arrowhead details. Unfortunately, she has retired, and her position is yet to be filled. Please send your checks, made out to UC Regents, to Lisa Rosenberg, NCP, 2014 Sawtelle Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025. I believe, if necessary, NCP will also accept credit card payments (see Registration Form for more details).
I look forward to seeing all of you at our March meeting! Thanks for your cooperation.
With best wishes,
