Bringing CNS Members Together to Make Children’s Lives Better

CONNECTING TO...

As the CNS approaches its 50th/Golden Anniversary Meeting ushering in its 50th full year in 2022 as the primary “home” for child neurologists from the US and Canada, we are particularly gratified to find so many CNS members willing to offer their time and talent to serve their colleagues in the CNS and the larger community of child neurology professionals, patients and families. It bodes well for the Society’s next 50 years that nearly 50 members newly volunteered to serve on a committee beginning in 2021, a number far surpassing any previous year. Next month, when the new CNS website launches, members scrolling through profiles of past award recipients or viewing videos of past and present CNS thought leaders will note how many served benefited from the career- and life-changing relationships and collaborations seeded by participation in committee work and involvement in Special Interest Groups activities. Volunteers looking to begin serving on a committee in 2022 may contact Roger Larson at any time; in some cases, new volunteers will be added in time to attend committee meetings held in conjunction with the CNS Annual Meeting in Boston (note: due to uncertain meeting room/space configurations, most committee meetings will likely be held via Zoom).
