Neurosurgeons who participate in the CNS are never the same persons they were before and the change is even more apparent in the elected officers.
Walk into an Annual Meeting of the CNS and the experience is different from attending other scientific societies. The meeting is alive and breathing! Part of it is the attention to details, and the feeling of belonging to an extended family. Each Annual Meeting is different—not so much one set of officers trying to outdo the next—more a sense of providing another different experience in the life of dedicated professionals.
The Founders and early organizers expected the CNS to succeed, but its performance has far exceeded their expectations.
Each succeeding President, officers, committees and memberships have made significant historical contributions to the progress of the CNS.
