NANOS COMMITTEE HIGHLIGHTS
Did you know that NANOS has 40+ committees and taskforces?
NANOS is proud of and grateful for having so many engaged volunteers who are passionate about advancing our mission. All our volunteers are the blood vessels of our organization. All that NANOS does ties back to their ongoing efforts and hard work behind the scenes.
DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE HIGHLIGHTS:
What is your committee working on and how does it impact NANOS Members?
As the fundraising arm of NANOS, we work to encourage private donations and industry support to help NANOS meet its goals that could not be achieved through dues revenue alone. A year-long effort, our current priority is reaching out to previous supporters and potential new industry partners. NANOS raised over $39,000 in private donations (thank you!) thus far for 2022 and has commitments of over $275,000 from industry as of 1/16/23 to support the 2023 Annual meeting!
What resources should the membership be aware of?
- Did you know that all NANOS donations are recognized (unless otherwise requested) on our website here?
- If you’d like more CME credit, look out for emails from Vindico, one of NANOS current partners, for CME opportunities! To receive these, be sure to whitelist email@example.com or login to your NANOS profile and update your email preferences here.
Make sure to subscribe to the NANOS listservs to stay connected and network with fellow professionals. To get subscribed or request changes in your email address, please email the NANOS Executive Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- NANOSNET DISCUSSION FORUM: The NANOSNET listserv is a private forum maintained by NANOS for use by its members and selected other participants with a professional interest in neuro-ophthalmology.
- YONO DISCUSSION FORUM: The goal of this discussion forum is geared towards the young/new neuro-ophthalmology community and provides a platform to share resources and collaborate.
- WIN DISCUSSION FORUM: The goal of the NANOS Women in Neuro-ophthalmology listserv is to be an easy communication portal between interested women of NANOS in order to facilitate open dialog on subjects that are of interest to its members.
HOW DO I POST IMAGES ON NANOSNET?
Subscribers are not permitted to attach files to NANOSNET messages. You can send any images that accompany a message to email@example.com and a link to the files to include in a NANOSNET message will be sent to you.
