Message from the President
I am writing regarding the future of the Society for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology (SBCN). Our organization was founded in 1982 and we will be hosting the 32nd Annual Dinner Meeting at the AAN in 2016. We are continuing to strive to expand the educational offerings of the Society. The Annual Research Forum at the AAN has been very popular and it is a great opportunity for our members to present their most interesting projects and have time for aengage in lively discussion among the attendees. We have begun and are continuing the tradition of honoring a senior member of the profession who has made significant contributions to the field.
We are now faced with the economic reality that the cost of the dinners at the AAN meeting is more than the revenue we receive from registrations for that event. We invite our colleagues in training to attend at minimal cost because they are the future of the field and this type of event is essential for their professional growth. After much discussion about how to preserve and grow the organization, the executive committee decided to appeal to you, our members and colleagues, to participate in our plan to sustain the organization by asking you to makemaking a commitment through a tax deductible donation. As the tax year comes to an end now would be a good time to take advantage of this tax deduction that will help support the continued growth of our discipline. Your donations will be recognized at the dinner meeting and on the SBCN web site.
Your generosity will could be the difference between relegating SBCN to fond memories of past events and creating the financial foundation to build the future of our uniquely behavioral neurology organization.
We are also planning to expand the SBCN web site to house member contact information for professional networking, on-line payment and increased educational content. More information will be coming in the near future.
Donations can be mailed to SBCN, 493 Blandings Ct, Worthington, OH 43085. Please make checks payable to: Society for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology. You may also pay by credit card. For credit card payments please call Sandy Bornstein at the SBCN office at: 614-260-6405 or fax it to: 614-688-5461
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
H. Branch Coslett, MD, FAAN, President, SBCN
