NANS Membership Offers Value and Stake in Future of Neuromodulation
Ali Rezai, MD
As we move into the fall, I have begun to reflect on my term as NANS president. During these past 2 years, NANS has achieved tremendous growth in both membership and member involvement. Last year, the NANS Board of Directors created the NANS Foundation to foster the development of education, training, and research in the field of neuromodulation. Our annual meeting has shown unprecedented growth each year, and all indications are that attendance will continue to increase as NANS expands its reach to include and provide more relevant and critical content for all related specialties involved in the field of neuromodulation.
Over the course of the next year, the NANS board and committees will be implementing several new initiatives to enhance member benefits and value. Current benefits include registration discounts to attend the annual meeting, access to a searchable directory of members through the Members Only section of the NANS website, an annual subscription to the NANS Newsletter, and access to the online archive of the society’s journal, Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface. Some of the new benefits to watch for are additional exclusive members’ only content on the NANS website, including a focus on educational content for practitioners, and greater access to annual meeting presentation materials. Other benefits include continued advocacy work in areas related to treatment guidelines and reimbursement issues.
