Greetings ANSPA Members! I hope that 2015 has been an eventful and successful year for you so far. Please see below for several updates that I hope will be of interest to you. Thank you again for your continued support of the Association of Neurosurgical Physician Assistants.

- Neurosurgery PA Survey:
We have finalized the ANSPA Member Survey and it is now available. It is important that we have as many responses to the survey as possible. The more responses we have, the more valid and representative the data will be. Please forward this survey link to any of your colleagues working in the field of neurosurgery. You do not have to be a member on ANSPA to take the survey. This is a great opportunity for you to encourage your peers and colleagues to join ANSPA, as this will prove to be valuable information for our members. The survey can be found at:
- Bylaws and Amendments:
ANSPA is in the process of updating and modifying our by-laws and amendments to better reflect the needs of our growing and changing association. The current healthcare climate, technological advances and progressive changes in our profession require that ANSPA modify the rules governing us as an organization. Once the proposed changes have been completed and reviewed by the ANSPA Board of Directors, we will send out a notice of the proposed changes. Our current Constitution and Bylaws can be found here (viewable to members only).
- Annual ANSPA Meetings:
Fall Meeting: The Fall ANSPA CME Meeting was held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 in New Orleans, in conjunction with the CNS Annual Meeting. We had exceptional speakers for this meeting, and enjoyed a small, informal, and relaxed setting. Thank you again for all who attended!
Spring Meeting: The 84th American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting will take place April 30-May 4, 2016, in Chicago, IL. Please click here for more information and to register. Currently, ANSPA does not plan to hold a Spring 2016 CME Meeting.
ANSPA: Congratulations to the newest member of the ANSPA Board of Directors, Justin T. Brooks, PA-C! Congratulations as well to Mike F. Nido, PA-C for his re-election to the Board of Directors.
