July brings an uncommonly slim issue of IMPULSE, reminding us that even the sturdiest containers need time off to stay vital. In that spirit, we wish you a fun and restful summer — though we hope you'll take a moment to check out the two lighthearted events in APPOINTMENT BOOK and communications from your colleagues in CLASSIFIEDS.

This month we welcome the newest member of the IMPULSE team, Meg Earles, M.A., who will contribute her copy editing experience to the newsletter. IMPULSE remains enthusiastically committed to serving the needs of our professional community, and we welcome your suggestions and feedback by email.

Finally, we would like to let you know about two changes in the digital realm that represent evolution in two of our analytic community's many organizations. As an expression of San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute & Society (SFPI&S)'s transformation into the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), its web site has moved to www.sf-cp.org. And, we would like to invite you to explore the newly redesigned NCSPP site, www.ncspp.org, which features an all-new interface including the ability to register and pay for learning opportunities online via PayPal.

We hope you enjoy this month's issue, and we hope you'll join NCSPP to assist us in furthering the community that belongs to us all.
