Message from the President
It is my pleasure to serve as your current ANSPA President. I am looking forward to working with the current Board of Directors and leading our organization over the next couple of years. I would like to thank David Black, your immediate Past President. Dave has done a tremendous job leading our organization over the past several years and his commitment to our profession is to be commended.
My goals over the next several years are to not only carry on where Dave left off, but to continue to advance our organization, thus advancing our profession. I have been working with the new Board of Directors over the past couple of months, and we are working on several new and exciting projects.
First and foremost…Remember, this is your organization. It can not be successful without your support and help. I have made a commitment to increasing not only the number of members, but more importantly, the value that comes along with being a member. I want to ensure that we are providing an exceptional service and benefit to our members.
I have charged our Board of Directors with several tasks and projects. Some of these include: Identifying ways to grow our organization, identifying all areas where we can improve as an organization, improving our website and technology and identifying and establishing a way to increase our networking ability.
However…the two most important tasks, in my opinion revolve around Improving and increasing the opportunities for Neurosurgical education and furthering our profession as Neurosurgical Physician Assistants. I humbly assert that as Neurosurgical Physician Assistants, we are an elite group within the Physician Assistant community. I consider us fortunate to work with some of the brightest and most advanced Physicians in Medicine today. Neurosurgeons are on the cutting edge of medicine, and remain among the most gifted, intelligent and driven physicians. We need to possess and maintain those same standards within our own profession.
There are several educational initiatives that we are working on that will be a tremendous benefit to us as neurosurgical Physician Assistants. Once we are farther along in the process I will share more details, but this is something that I am very excited about.
In order to accomplish the goals and objectives that I have set forth, we need your help. Not only do I need your suggestions as to what you think would provide benefit to you as a members, but we need members to be involved. Please contact me if you have ideas that you would like implement, or better yet, if you are willing to become actively involved in your organization. A membership application is attached, or you can join online at www.anspa.org.
I look forward to a productive and exciting future for our organization. There are many exciting things on our horizon. Thank you for being members of ANSPA, and for your commitment to the Neurosurgical Physician Assistant Profession.
