Due to the peripheral nerve system having vast specialties under its domain, the Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) allows special interest groups (SIGS) to form as a consortium under the Society.  Each SIG is considered a standing committee of the PNS. Current special interest groups of the Peripheral Nerve Society include:

Special Interest Group (SIG) Formation Requirements:
Below are the steps and requirements that interested specialty groups must complete prior to being considered a SIG of the PNS:

  • Write a letter of request to the PNS Board of Directors. The letter must include a list of interested PNS Members and details explaining why the sub group should be formed.
  • In consultation with the PNS Executive Office, draft a mission statement and constitution to the PNS Board of Directors, outlining the contribution the SIG would have to the Society.
  • Appoint a Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary to aid in running the SIG group.
  • All members of the PNS may join the SIG upon request. All members of the SIG must pay annual membership dues through the PNS.

For additional information, please contact PNS Executive Director, Allison Kindseth at akindseth@PNSociety.com.
