I enthusiastically endorse Dr. Glenn Martin for President-Elect. Even more impressive than his track-record as an advocate, practitioner, educator, and APA leader is his warmth and genuine desire to advance our profession. Serving together on the APA Council on Research, I have seen first-hand his dedication and quick willingness to problem solve and get things done right.

I have been impressed with Dr. Glen Martin’s quick wit, great sense of humor, high integrity, and easy accessibility As a president-elect of the APA, I am certain that he would put these personal attributes to very good use for strengthening the organization. Also, his deep knowledge of the parliamentary procedures as well as his understanding of challenges facing the APA and its members makes him a formidable candidate and a leader. I am honored to endorse him for the position of the president-elect.

Glenn Martin will be a great President for the APA. He’s been an a dynamic leader within the APA at the local, state, and national levels, and he knows the organization with true deep knowledge. I’ve had the privilege of working with him closely for a decade, and I know he’s really committed to us and to our patients.

Daniel Anzia, MD,
Immediate Past Speaker of the Assembly


I warmly support Glenn Martin for President-Elect of the APA. His experience as Assembly Speaker and Board Member demonstrate his leadership abilities and commitment to the APA. Having worked with him in Area 1 which straddles the Canada-USA border, I know he is attuned to differences and attentive to diversity. Glenn is open, accessible and responsive, both reflective and action-oriented, and knows how to get things done!
The plank in his platform that means the most to me is that “The APA must be as a good citizen in the medical community, the nation and the world.” Living in Canada and as a visiting professor in the USA, I believe that Glenn understands us and is open to the world. Today’s challenges in psychiatry are both national and international and Glenn is just the person to lead us now. Please give your vote to Glenn Martin for President-Elect of the APA.

I met Glenn in the APA Assembly. He was the chair of the DSM-5 Assembly Workgroup when I was Speaker-elect and then Speaker. Glenn knew the work to be done, organized his committee, and kept them focused on the important tasks ahead. When the discussion would begin to drift off (as it tended to do), Glenn could always get back to our focus that we have a document that can help psychiatrists take care of patients. As President-elect, I know that Glenn will make certain that we have an APA that helps psychiatrists take care of patients.

R. Scott Benson, MD, DLFAPA, DLFAACAP
Past Speaker of the Assembly, 2012-13

Dr. Glenn Martin has worked tirelessly for the psychiatric profession in his roles as physician and Speaker of the APA Assembly. He has worked to unify psychiatrists across the country in the missions of advancing care for patients and improving practice conditions for physicians. I urge psychiatrists to vote for Glenn Martin, M.D. He will be an outstanding President of the APA.

I have participated with Glenn for 15 years, and admired his work leading the APA Assembly and representing our interests on the Board of Trustees. Articulate, clear-headed and committed leader are some of the many attributes Dr. Martin possesses and he will exhibit outstanding captaincy as APA President. He has my whole-hearted support!

John J. Wernert, MD


I support Dr. Martin’s candidacy for the APA President. I’ve had the honor of working with Dr. Martin while in the APA Assembly first as an RFM representative and now as the Asian-American caucus representative and have found his blend of humor, a deep sense of conviction and no-nonsense (but pragmatic) attitude refreshing and often necessary. I am confident in his abilities to lead the APA into the late 2000 tweens.

Anish R. Dube, M.D. M.P.H.

Glenn has my support because of his deep understanding of the APA through his work in the Assembly where he has is demonstrated leadership and commitment, as well as contributions to the creation of DSM 5.

John Bailey, D.O., DFAPA

Vote for Glenn Martin for President-Elect. He’s the best. Ultra hard-working, while he appears to be laid back. Great sense of humor. Can think outside the box and has a great track record. He’s been very active in the nitty gritty of APA, state-wide and nationally and leadership FOR A LONG TIME! He’s smart, not afraid to say what he thinks and his focus has been on our disadvantaged patient! He’s been active in advocacy at the state and national levels. Do I need to say more? Vote for Glenn and you wont be sorry.

APA–Past Area 6 Representative to APA Assembly


I met Glenn about 10 years ago when he had just become president of the NYS Psychiatric Association and I joined the APA Assembly. I was an early career psychiatrist at that time and I was impressed by his approachability and support for early career psychiatrists. With clinical experience, DSM involvement and health informatics expertise, I have seen his ability to understand the complexities of system based practice and quickly and eloquently clarify unforeseen issues. I admire his intellect and passion for the delivery of better health care and his passion is apparent. He is warm, witty, friendly and sincere. I have great respect for him and his work. It would be an honor to have Glenn Martin, MD as our next APA President.

Alexander von Hafften, MD
Assembly Representative

I have had the privilege of working closely with Glenn in several contexts including the DSM-5 development process, the ongoing DSM continuous revision process, and the development of the APA’s clinical registry. Glenn served as the APA Assembly liaison to the DSM, and played an important role in insuring that the needs of clinicians were seriously taken into account during the development of the DSM-5. In these challenging times, APA needs a strong and competent leader with a broad background of interests and experiences.

Glenn is a rare type of leader who can effortlessly bring the best from others. I was fortunate to have Glenn as my mentor during training. He was able to instill in me not only the knowledge of psychiatric practice but more importantly the confidence to grow in to the role.

It is with great pride that I firmly support Glenn Martin MD for APA President-Elect!

Steve Soldinger MD Assembly representative, Southern California Psychiatric Society


I support Dr. Glenn Martin for APA President-Elect because he is an experienced leader, manager and educator both within and outside the APA. I share the principles he professes as a candidate for the position. Personally, he left a positive impression on me early in my training as a psychiatry resident especially on how to get things moving in a busy psychiatric emergency room.

Richard A. Young, MD
President, Queens County Psychiatric Society (2016-2018)


I have been familiar with Glenn’s contributions and incisive intelligence in his work in the APA Assembly, and in recent years working with him more closely during his tenure in Assembly leadership positions, including Speaker. Glenn is an articulate voice of concern for our patients and for the members of our profession, with extensive experience in private practice, academic teaching, administrative psychiatry, and in his New York State Public Health Committee and Council appointments. He has passion for his work, and I believe that he will provide excellent leadership for the APA.
