Dear PPPANA Member:

A great deal has happened since I wrote to you in January of this year. First of all, I want to share with you the excitement and promise of the Planning Meeting which was held at the beginning of July at Amherst, MA, the site of the Fourth Congress. After a tour of the facilities, all 42 attendees settled down to the serious business of planning the Congress. We discussed, planned, committed ourselves and moved from being a group of strangers to a team of colleagues. It was an highly satisfying meeting although it is certainly clear to all of those who were present what a huge task faces us if we are to bring the meeting to a successful reality.

One of the first tasks facing us is financial. We must raise the operating capital for this Congress from the energy, good will and commitment of ourselves alone. We have applied for corporate funding: this is not a reality at this point. Realizing this, and looking, too, at our other needs, I have some proposals to make to you as a member of the community who are concerned with pre and perinatal psychology and practices:

First of all, let me ask you to invest in the Congress by reserving a place there now. Early registration is a very important way in which we can raise vitally needed funds. In addition, early registration assures you of a place at the Congress at very favorable rates. If your preregistration is postmarked by September 1, 1988 you will be able to register at a rate which is not only a substantial reduction from the later cost of on-site tuition, you will also save the entire cost of the food plan, (expected to run about $100.00). So registration now will save a substantial amount of money and help the Congress in a vital area.

Second, please consider making a loan or donation to the Fourth Congress. PPPANA is non-profit organization and your donations to it are therefore fully tax-deductible. Donations will be gratefully accepted and will be acknowledged, if you desire, in the official Congress literature. Loans, on the other hand, will be repaid from the proceeds of the Congress. All three previous Congresses have repaid their debts in full and we anticipate being able to follow suit. In the event that the Congress fails to make enough money to pay its debts, then the loans would become tax deductible donations to PPPANA. It is, however, our intention to repay all debts in full.

Third, please share your mailing lists with us. Many of you have developed mailing lists which are rich in professionals, parents, families, institutions and so forth who would be interested in PPPANA and might become attendees, exhibitors, speakers or corporate sponsors of the Fourth Congress. …
