Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

It is with great joy, humility, and gratitude that I extend my warmest welcome to all of you. As the current president of our esteemed organization, I am honored to serve you. Our organization stands at the intersection of two noble causes: the well-being of children and the professional development of child and adolescent psychiatrists. I believe that these two pillars are inseparable in providing the highest quality care to our young patients.

Our commitment to education is a cornerstone of our mission. By providing continuing education and facilitating collaboration among our membership, we strive to enhance the quality of care and positively impact the lives of countless children. None of our endeavors would be possible without the support of passionate individuals like you. As a physician seeking to expand your knowledge base, your participation in our organization is invaluable. It is through your generous contributions of time, resources, and knowledge that we can continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children in our communities and beyond.

For those of you who are current members, I am proud to serve you and carry forward our mission. For those who are prospective members, I invite you to join our organization as we strive to ensure the patients we serve receive exemplary care. Together, let us raise the standard of care and inspire the next generation of physicians to become true champions of children's health and well-being.

Thank you for your unwavering support. I am excited and optimistic about the journey that lies ahead!

With profound gratitude,
David I. Driver, M.D.
