Special Interest Groups

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.
