Committees

PNS Committees are the Foundation of our Society

PNS members are invited to serve on committees and collaborate on projects that strengthen our Society. Participating on committees is how our members get the most out of their membership. PNS committee members have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with colleagues from around the world and  help shape the future direction of the PNS.

New committee member terms commence in June, in conjunction with the PNS Annual Meeting.  A call for volunteers is sent to all active members each Spring, inviting new members to apply.
