Dear PNWRS Members,

I am writing the group with disappointing news that requires the attention and input by members able to attend a special meeting. Upon thorough review of our financial condition and of declining membership interest over the past many years, the Executive Committee of our society has recommended dissolution of PNWRS. We have enough funds to close our books, but we do not have enough savings to fund another annual meeting or sustain administrative expenses.

Following procedures outlined by our bylaws, we are hereby advertising a special meeting, to be held on Wednesday, August 10, 2016, so that we can discuss the recommendation with the group and place a formal vote.

We hope that you can attend either in person or by phone. Meeting details are as follows:

Date: Wednesday, August 10, 2016
Time: 12PM – 1PM
Location: University of Washington Medical Center, Room NN202
Address: 1959 NE Pacific St, Seattle, WA 98195

For those of you unable to attend in person, the conference dial-in instructions are:

Dial:   (On campus) 6-2663
(Local)          206-616-2663
(Toll free)     1-866-463-1679
Enter Conference ID Code:     313345 followed by the # key

I regret that I have to deliver such a letter to you. It has been a distinct pleasure to volunteer on the PNWRS Board.

Kind regards,

Tess Chapman, MD
President, PNWRS

About the PNWRS

Established in 1946, the Pacific Northwest Radiological Society is a proud tradition. As its primary mission, the PNWRS holds an annual general radiology meeting, rotating each year between the states of Oregon, Washington and the province of British Columbia.

These meetings feature international renowned speakers as well as noted local radiologists. The PNWRS Annual Meeting provides an excellent value for your dollars spent in addition to being a great social opportunity to generate and renew friendships.

Membership is the core existence of the PNWRS. It is what makes it possible for the society to offer an exceptional CME offering at a low and affordable rate. If you are not currently a member of our society, please consider joining. Member dues are $100 per year payable three years at a time.

If you are a PNWRS member, please inform a friend or colleague who is not and strongly urge them to join the society.
