Bringing CNS Members Together to Make Children’s Lives Better

CONNECTING TO...

The long awaited, once-in-a-lifetime CNS 50th Annual Meeting in Boston is now little more than seven weeks away. Beginning August 10, and each day for the next 50 days, we will count down to the opening day of the CNS Meeting in Boston: Wednesday, September 29.

And we’ll have a little fun doing so (I will, anyway). By going down through the alphabet from “A-Z” and back up to “A” again, maybe skipping three days for the Labor Day Weekend, each daily eConnections will lightly touch on one or more aspects of CNS Annual Meetings (Past, Present and Future) linked to that day’s mnemonic.

For example: August 10 (50 Days before the meeting) will lead off with a topic beginning with the letter “A” – Ann Arbor, site of the 1st CNS Meeting in 1972; August 11 (49 Days before the meeting), will touch on topics starting with the letter “B” – Boston, as luck would have it. Likewise, August 12 (48 Days) will cross the border to “Canada,” while August 13 (47 Days) will

look at “Dodge” and “De Vivo” (with “Denckla” and “D’Souza” slated for the second time “D” comes up, September 25 – 4 Days out).

The range and roster of topics is meant to be emblematic, not encyclopedic. And – full disclosure – it will be highly subjective, filtering the last 50 years through my privileged perch on the sidelines of CNS history.

The “Countdown to Boston” eConnections will be sent midday each day. I hope you enjoy the journey. There will be various, variant-induced bumps along the way, but I think if we hold on through the rough stretch ahead, curves may level, clouds will clear and we’ll all gather in Boston to celebrate in high style.

Regards,
Roger Larson, CAE
Executive Director
