“It is my great pleasure to proffer my enthusiastic endorsement…” Anne Marie Albano, Ph.D., ABPP

It is my great pleasure to proffer my enthusiastic endorsement of Mary Ann McCabe, Ph.D., for President of APA!  Dr. McCabe is one of the shining lights of the APA, whose career embodies the values and mission of our profession in every sense.  Although a contemporary of mine in terms of our age in the field, from way back I have followed her career and continue to view her as a role model for how to best bring to life the commitment we all made to being clinical scientist-practitioners.  This endorsement is not from someone with a personal or working relationship with Dr. McCabe but comes from having truly watched, learned, and admired from a distance all that she has accomplished as a clinician, scientist, and administrator.  Among the various roles that she has served in and continues to hold both outside of and within APA (from being a Member of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine Forum on Promoting Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health to former chair of APA Board of Professional Affairs, Chair of the Committee on Professional Practice and Standards, Chair of the Child, Adolescent, and Family Caucus of the APA Council of Representatives, and many others), Dr. McCabe demonstrates that she is collaborative, engaging, not afraid to take on difficult tasks, and selfless in her dedication to the role and the field.  Most importantly, Dr. McCabe’s many significant roles in APA governance have served to prepare her to take the highest leadership position as President, and to do so with experience, insight, working relationships, and a thorough and deep understanding of the association and how it functions to serve our members and our varied fields of psychology.  I continue to follow Dr. McCabe’s work and insights through her postings and updates to members of APA and am excited to see what she will do to steer APA through these difficult times that we’re all experiencing. She’s the President that we need for APA!  Please vote for Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for President of APA.

“Mary Ann brings a mix of values, skills and style …” Judith S. Blanton, Ph.D.

Mary Ann brings a mix of values, skills and style that are particularly valuable at this time in APA’s history.   This is a time of change in our country and our organization.  Mary Ann would be an excellent leader for this period.  She is both idealistic and pragmatic.  She has experience, expertise, and integrity in working to make positive changes in policy and political arenas. She listens thoughtfully and has a history of working well with a wide variety of groups. She is a strong leader but does this gracefully, collaboratively and with attention to the diversity of those involved. Although she is particularly noted for her work with children, she has a deep appreciation for the broad scope of psychology and APA’s divisions – including clinicians, academics and general applied psychologists.  She will speak truth to power and to the powerless but do it with empathy and with the goal of making positive change.

“It is my honor to endorse Mary Ann for the position of APA President-Elect…” Ester Cole, Ph.D., C. Psych.

It is my honor to endorse Mary Ann for the position of APA President-Elect. Having known her in a range of leadership positions makes it both easy and called for! She has been advocating for psychology and its utilization in serving society, while promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion all along. No role has been too small or big for Mary Ann. Once she undertakes a task, she delivers methodically, collaboratively, and creatively. As a big picture role model scientist-practitioner to many, whose personal attributes include interpretive listening and timely problem-solving of critical intersectional issues faced by the public, she has helped change the landscape of the profession’s contributions. No wonder Dr. McCabe’s name has been associated with excellence and distinction. The accolades and awards Mary Ann received for her outstanding achievement in promoting mental health and science-based policies and practices, are a testament to her fine leadership profile.

Her work on our behalf has been pivotal and needed more than ever. Join me in supporting Mary Ann McCabe for APA President-Elect!

“I strongly endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA president…” Beth Doll, Ph.D.

I strongly endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA president. Her participation in APA leadership is longstanding and includes some of the most crucial tasks that the association performs for policy, practice, and education in psychology. She is an exceptional advocate for the behavioral health rights of children including their mental health needs, rights to participate in mental health decisions made on their behalf, and the promotion of the highest standards of care in the delivery of pediatric mental health services. Her contributions are firmly grounded in the rigorous empirical science on mental health, integrated into savvy policy recommendations that particularly strengthen the psychological well-being of the nation. Her influence is substantial as reflected in her membership on multiple policy and planning boards across the disciplines. She represents the best of psychology for national and international leaders and policymakers.

“It was my distinct privilege to serve with Dr. McCabe…” Eric Y. Drogin, J.D., Ph.D., ABPP

It was my distinct privilege to serve with Dr. McCabe on the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Professional Practice and Standards (COPPS), where her ability to advance health promotion and prevention, advocate for our shared discipline, and unite colleagues of diverse orientations and backgrounds was readily apparent from the day she arrived. Dr. McCabe was a unanimous choice to chair COPPS, and it was a delight—but, of course, not a surprise—to see her go on to assume other important leadership roles within the APA and as a consultant to other national professional and scientific organizations as well. Despite the various demands and opportunities afforded by these positions, Dr. McCabe has never abandoned her primary professional identity as a skilled clinician and dedicated supervisor. She is a true practitioner’s candidate and a superb choice for the role of President of the American Psychological Association.

“I wholeheartedly support Mary Ann McCabe, Ph.D., ABPP for APA President-Elect…” Spencer Evans, Ph.D.

I wholeheartedly support Mary Ann McCabe, Ph.D., ABPP for APA President-Elect. As an early career psychologist, I view Dr. McCabe as a tireless and effective champion for psychological science and practice. She has an unparalleled record of leadership and service, not just within APA, but also in many interdisciplinary organizations at the national level. At the same time, she has remained remarkably engaged at an institutional and local level, including maintaining a successful private practice for many years. Her vision for APA is broad and inclusive, ranging from advocating for the wellbeing of children, youth, and families to fighting for racial equity, inclusion, and justice. Simply put, I can think of no one better equipped to lead our organization through these challenging times than Dr. Mary Ann McCabe.

“I am delighted and honored to endorse my good colleague and friend…” Ruth Fassinger, Ph.D.

I am delighted and honored to endorse my good colleague and friend, Dr. Mary Ann McCabe, for APA President-Elect. I believe that APA is at a critical moment in its trajectory as psychology’s most important professional organization, and Mary Ann is the right leader at the right time. She is a Board-certified, well-respected practitioner-advocate who works tirelessly to promote children’s health, and she contributes scholarly work and scientific networking that support her advocacy most effectively. She has served in many strategic leadership positions within APA and in the larger scientific and public policy communities, offering a wealth of experiences, relationships, and coalitions that are imperative to furthering APA’s mission and goals. Moreover, she is well-known as a leader who puts larger organizational needs above her own, whose commitments to inclusion and justice are long-standing and unwavering, who mentors others into participation and having a voice, who offers a calm and considered perspective on even the thorniest issues, who cares more about people and processes than petty politics but also who knows how to work around political intrigue and impediments, and who does things because they need to be done, not because they will further her career. And, you know what the best part is? She is so much fun that she makes even the most tedious work pleasant and even the most difficult tasks achievable. She is the President APA needs NOW!!!!

She has the unique ability to tackle difficult issues and advocate for the wellbeing of all, translate policy to practice and practice to policy, and places scientific evidence at the forefront of decision making. Her multiple leadership roles within APA places her in good stead to lead the organization as it considers its role in addressing social justice issues, the role of psychology and public health, and the future of science and practice. Her strong collaborative skills will benefit you and the organization. Please join me in supporting her as the next President of the American Psychological Association.

“I am thrilled that Mary Ann McCabe has been nominated for APA President…” Diana Fishbein, Ph.D.

I am thrilled that Mary Ann McCabe has been nominated for APA President. I believe she is the top candidate for this post. Her deep practice experience and public health policy training sets her apart. Throughout her career, she has advocated for bridging science with policy and practice. She has led the types of strategic innovations in perspective and approach that the science now demands, based on significant advances in the field, particularly with respect to public health policies and evidence-based preventive and treatment interventions. Dr. McCabe has lived experience in a variety of strategies needed to comprehensively tackle many of the psychological and behavioral problems that plague our nation and that are firmly rooted in the social determinants of health. She will elevate the prioritization of primary prevention, health promotion, upstream approaches, equity, and other strategies known to promote healthy developmental trajectories through implementation of individual, clinical and community level policies and practices. She wants to see serious attention paid to racial/implicit bias and systemic and structural racism; her leadership experience can help to prioritize the disparate vulnerabilities to health and behavioral health problems and the need for wider and more equitable availability of preventive intervention and treatment. This is the sort of leadership that will enable APA to thrive and continue to elevate its impact on the national stage.

“Dr. McCabe has had a career-long commitment to the betterment of society…” Mary Fristad, Ph.D., ABPP

Dr. McCabe has had a career-long commitment to the betterment of society through the work of psychology. She excels in clinical care, scholarship, education and advocacy. Just a few examples of her leadership skills are her engagement of the business community to promote healthy development, commitment to global approaches to integrated care, and expertise in working with Congress. Three years ago, the Society for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (Division 53) gave Dr. McCabe its inaugural award for Promoting Evidence Based Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents. And six years ago, APA honored Dr. McCabe with a Presidential Citation “for tireless efforts to advocate for national, science-based policies and practices to improve the mental health of children, adolescents and their families.” Let us help Dr. McCabe broaden the impact of her leadership by electing her President of APA!

“I wholeheartedly endorse Mary Ann McCabe for APA President…” Elizabeth T. Gershoff, Ph.D.

I wholeheartedly endorse Mary Ann McCabe for APA President. Her career exemplifies the many ways psychologists can impact individuals and society: she is a practitioner, a teacher, a researcher, an author, an advocate for children and families, and a very active member of APA. Her extensive experience translating psychological science for practitioners, policymakers, and the public have prepared her to both lead APA internally and to be a spokesperson for APA externally. Mary Ann will be a tireless advocate of psychology and psychologists but will also hold APA to the highest ethical standards and will not be afraid to push for change. I am delighted that she has decided to run for APA President and strongly endorse her candidacy.

“I strongly endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA President-Elect…” Kristina Coop Gordon, Ph.D.

I strongly endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA President-Elect. Dr. McCabe is a true scientist-practitioner who has held almost every role that a psychologist can have. She is a scholar – and has been a leader in such prestigious organizations as the National Academies of Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is a clinician – in her current role as a private practice owner and past role as program director in Children’s National Hospital. She is an educator and a respected policy maker through her involvement in numerous organizations including SRCD and COSSA. Within APA, she has been involved in almost every governing Board that exists and is currently serving as a Council Representative and Chair of the Child, Youth, and Family Caucus. All of this is to say that Dr. McCabe is the most well-rounded and deeply experienced candidate for President that I have ever seen in my over two decades of APA membership. She is forward-thinking, inclusive, and ambitious in her goals for making APA the premier destination for mental health policy and decision-making in the country. I have seen first-hand how much APA members already gravitate toward her political savvy and broad knowledge of how APA “works.” She will be an excellent leader for us in these chaotic times.

I endorse Mary Ann McCabe as President-Elect of the American Psychological Association because I believe she will provide the type of leadership that APA needs to bring us together as a field to address the critical issues in our country. Dr. McCabe’s leadership would thoughtfully address the current challenges of the COVID pandemic and directly contribute towards the recovery of our scientific mission, clinical practice, and educational activities as the pandemic subsides. As a student who is currently pursuing a Ph.D., I feel that Dr. McCabe will be responsive to trainees’ needs and concerns. I also believe she will provide a clear vision to improve the inclusion of trainees coming from diverse backgrounds and support students working on completing their training in this unparalleled time. Dr. McCabe has years of experience related to her work in science, practice, policy, and training and continues to dedicate herself to making a sincere and significant contribution to APA’s governance. I am confident that Dr. McCabe is the right choice for President-Elect and believe she will generate the collaborative energy we need to move our field forward with integrity and innovation. I also encourage all students and trainees to support Dr. McCabe to become the President-Elect in this election. She is an inspiring leader who will listen to us and who we can trust as we work to become established members of our profession.

“It is with excitement that I provide an endorsement for Dr. Mary Ann McCabe…” Amber Hewitt, Ph.D.

It is with excitement that I provide an endorsement for Dr. Mary Ann McCabe. As an early career psychologist, I have admired Mary Ann’s tireless commitment to the field and the integrity that she brings as a leader. I‘ve had the pleasure of working with Mary Ann through our shared interest in child and family policy. There are usually not many psychologists at the table when health policy is discussed, and Mary Ann is highly skilled at translating psychological science into actionable policy recommendations. I believe that Mary Ann is the leader that we need at this moment, when it is so important for psychologists to recommit to centering equity in our work, possess the ability to communicate across sectors, and elevate the field’s diverse needs to key decision makers.

Ever since, she has simultaneously mentored me and treated me as an equal, a combination that takes care and skill to master. I believe Mary Ann will lead with dignity and passion and achieve our highest hopes for an APA President. Her extensive experience in APA Division leadership, APA Boards and committees, and the Council of Representatives gives her a deep understanding of the organization and our members’ needs. Her track record of cultivating professional relationships outside APA brings a wealth of additional expertise and partnerships upon which she can draw to support her efforts to further elevate psychology in service of the public good. Her longtime commitment to improving policy and practice, and translating science into action, lays the foundation for her efforts to have a lasting impact on APA and the populations we serve.

“I first met Mary Ann in 1986 during our internship training days in Boston…” Robert Kinscherff, Ph.D., J.D.

I first met Mary Ann in 1986 during our internship training days in Boston. We later served together on the Committee on Professional Practice and Standards (COPPS) but I have been “one degree of separation” with her due to shared interests in ethics, policy, children and families, and the scientific basis of psychology. Mary Ann is a policy wonk who “gets” how important policy development is within APA and for psychology’s roles in multiple external political, social, clinical, and community systems. She is a very skilled psychologist whose career reflects committed action for psychology and those served by our profession. What her impressive CV cannot readily reflect is what a deeply thoughtful, fundamentally decent, and instinctively collaborative human being she is to all with whom she interacts. Mary Ann has my enthusiastic support for President of APA!

"Colleagues, I wholeheartedly support Dr. Mary Ann McCabe..." Celeste M. Malone, Ph.D., M.S.

Colleagues, I wholeheartedly support Dr. Mary Ann McCabe’s nomination for APA President-Elect. I had the pleasure of serving on the Board of Educational Affairs with Dr. McCabe. She was elected to BEA on the Board of Professional Affairs slate and was consistent in emphasizing the connection between education and professional practice during her time on BEA. Specifically, she always encouraged us to consider how our decisions about psychology education and training had downstream implications for psychology practice and emphasized the importance of training psychologists prepared to meet evolving workforce demands. Dr. McCabe also consistently highlighted the parallels between health policy and education policy to champion APA’s greater involvement in PK-12 education and school-based mental health services. Dr. McCabe’s leadership is grounded in inclusiveness. She was thoughtful about soliciting the perspectives of stakeholders internal and external to APA to guide BEA’s work. She is alsointentional about creating space and providing opportunities for those who are underrepresented in the Association and in the profession. Without question, Dr. McCabe will be an effective leader for APA. I strongly endorse her candidacy.

Mary Ann McCabe has an extraordinary record of contributions to the science and applications of psychology in the public interest. I have observed her in action for many years of leadership and service in APA, the National Academies, SRCD, and other organizations, advocating for the profession of psychology and communicating the best work we do to influence policy, practice, science, and training, both nationally and globally.

“Mary Ann is the ideal candidate for APA president…” Elizabeth McQuaid, Ph.D., ABPP

Mary Ann is the ideal candidate for APA president. We first met when she was my primary supervisor during on clinical internship in 1992 at Children’s National Medical Center. I can truly say Mary Ann is the most talented clinical supervisor I ever had and a tremendous influence on my professional development throughout my career. I have followed her work over the years, and have seen her experience in public service to the organization and involvement in key initiatives relating to education, communication of science to the public sector, and mental health advocacy be truly impactful. Mary Ann has the skills to represent community psychologists, researchers, and practitioners in school and public service settings. As APA President, she will be a strong voice in advocating for the field of psychology and for the mental health needs of those we serve.

“It is with great pleasure that I offer this enthusiastic endorsement…” Olivia Moorehead-Slaughter, Ph.D.

It is with great pleasure that I offer this enthusiastic endorsement of Mary Ann McCabe, my friend and colleague since 1985. Having a “front row seat” for over 35 years, I have seen Mary Ann’s accomplished work across the field of psychology, watched her strong collaborative leadership, and appreciated her contributions in the realms of science, practice, advocacy, education, and policy. For Mary Ann, it’s about “we!” and about APA. She is committed to service, to listening, to learning, and to our being “one association,” inclusive of all. All voices matter to Mary Ann and she readily engages students, ECPs, Mid-Career Psychologists, and Senior Psychologists, finding the multigenerational connections essential for the lifeblood of this association. Lastly, and importantly, Mary Ann brings a big heart, positivity, and good humor to her personal and professional relationships. She shows up with her humanity firmly in place! I am honored to lead her campaign and to work alongside so many who support her in this worthy endeavor! A win for Mary Ann is a win for all of psychology!

I am pleased to endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe as the next APA president. I have had the honor to work very closely with Dr. McCabe through the APA Division 37 governance for many years now. She is dedicated to serving the global community, and understands that only with thorough grounding in science, education, advocacy, and practice experience can she serve others with integrity at all levels. Dr. McCabe has a passion for service and exceptional work ethic and intelligence that has made her an asset to APA governance and beyond. I have seen her in action, advocating for policies and programs that impact the lives of children, youth and families from diverse background and communities. She is a great advocate and mentor who appreciates the strengths and contributions that all people from culturally diverse background bring to any decision-making process. We are living through a time that calls for leaders who recognize the social and political challenges and situations that require attention to the psychological issues that people are facing in our society. I am confident that Dr. McCabe has the wisdom and insight to guide APA through its efforts to achieving diversity, equity, inclusion and Justice for all.

Dr. McCabe’s work is permeated by an abiding commitment to inclusivity, which is manifest in her contributions to advocacy, education, dissemination, and science-informed practice.

I’m thrilled to endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA President. To me, she embodies the very best we want in our APA leadership: collaboration, compassion, and a broad, inclusive perspective that unites the many facets of psychology. Her campaign theme: “Better Together” perfectly illustrates her interest in ensuring that her presidency will be one that brings often disparate groups to the table to work to solve the most pressing issues facing our organization and society at large.

I enthusiastically endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for the next APA President. She has been a thoughtful leader and advocate for psychology for the duration of her career, and she has worked to advance psychology within health care systems.  In addition to her reaching many children and families through her clinical practice, Dr. McCabe provided outstanding mentorship and clinical supervision for more than a decade while at Children’s National Hospital in DC. She was a formative leader for the provision of pediatric psychology services throughout the hospital and in her service as Training Director.

I enthusiastically endorse Dr. Mary Ann McCabe for APA President. I first knew Dr. McCabe as my supervisor and mentor during my clinical internship year at Children’s National Medical Center. She is one of the most skilled clinicians I know. Dr. McCabe was then, and continues to be, dedicated to training and educating the next generation of psychologists to be science-based, ethical, and compassionate psychological service providers. Dr. McCabe is a passionate advocate for promoting children’s mental health, and for policies that promote equitable, evidence-based prevention and treatment. In my role as a health science research administrator, I particularly appreciate her leadership and efforts on important committees for APA, for the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), and for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAS). Dr. McCabe has demonstrated her leadership skills by contributing to APA in various roles for many years. She is also a kind and thoughtful person who is great fun to be around. I have no doubt that she would be a highly effective APA president.

“I enthusiastically endorse Mary Ann McCabe, Ph.D. for APA President…” Antonette Zeiss, Ph.D.

I enthusiastically endorse Mary Ann McCabe, Ph.D. for APA President.  Dr. McCabe has a broad understanding of the components of APA and how interrelated they are – science, practice, education, and public interest.  She has served in multiple important APA roles, including as Chair of the Board of Professional Affairs.  I am especially impressed with her understanding of and support for integration of mental and behavioral health services in primary care and other medical settings.  In relation to that area, she led a most valuable international collaboration on integrated care, with inclusion of collaborators from many countries and continents.  This resulted in an important article in the American Psychologist laying out an agenda for enhancing international integrated care services.  As APA President, she could pursue action on this agenda and other crucial areas of collaborative effort.  She is warm and interpersonally effective, as well as smart and knowledgeable.  She would be  excellent in the role of APA President.
