Early Career and Trainee Support Committee
After much planning and dedication, in 2014 the Early Career and Trainee Support (ECATS) Committee became an academy-wide committee with representatives from each ASCIP Section. The goal of ECATS is to organize ASCIP programming and events that address the individualized needs of students, trainees, and early career members (practitioners within 10 years of beginning their practice).
ECATS Board of Directors Liaison: Catherine Wilson, PsyD, ABPP
ECATS Co-chairs: Felicia Skelton, MD: and Raheleh Tschoepe, MS, OT/L

Early Career and Student Members to Mention (MM)
We continue to work to make the distinction between ECATS, which is the committee, and our constituents, which are all early career and student/trainee members. These MMs are not all ECATS committee members, just early career or student members that were highlighted.
