Dear friends,

As I write this final letter, I am reflecting on my past four years as president of ANSPA.  In doing so, I feel a great sense of pride in what we have accomplished as an organization. It has truly been a pleasure to serve as your president over these two terms. During my tenure, we have seen our membership numbers increase substantially.  We have built upon our relationships with the AANS and the CNS and our relationship with the AAPA has never been stronger. We have established a strong partnership with the CNS, including a dedicated CME event for neurosurgery PAs to be held at the CNS Annual Meetings.  Additionally, we have established ourselves as the organization representing neurosurgical PAs and their needs, capabilities and recommendations. Our website has been improved significantly to that of a more current, robust and interactive site, allowing us to showcase our new Job Bank dedicated to neurosurgical PA opportunities. We recently completed a neurosurgical PA salary survey and have seen significant improvement in our financial viability as an organization. While this is just the tip of the iceberg, it is only a glimpse of what we can accomplish in the future.  I would be remiss if I did not point out that none of this could have been accomplished without the help of the exceptional ANSPA leaders who serve as your directors and officers, and to them, I offer my gratitude.

On that note, I would like take this opportunity to congratulate your new and returning officers.

President: Paul Damm, PA-C
President-Elect: Grace Bryan, PA-C
Secretary/Treasurer: Justin Brooks, PA-C
Director-at-Large: Lindsay Gietzen, PA-C
Director-at-Large: Michael Nido, PA-C
Director-at-Large: Sapnil Patel, PA-C
Immediate Past President: Joshua Beardsley, PA-C

I am confident that under their leadership and guidance ANSPA will continue to thrive. Of course, I look forward to working with Paul, Grace and the remainder of the board as we continue to work to develop an organization that all neurosurgical PAs can be proud of.

Finally, thank you to all the dedicated neurosurgical PAs who continue to make this the greatest profession. I consider it a tremendous honor to call you peers and colleagues. It is with a profound sense of gratitude and pride that I sign off as president.


Joshua J. Beardsley, PA-C
ANSPA President
