Make the most out of your membership: Join a SAMBA committee!

    Dear SAMBA member:

    As the rising SAMBA resident section chair, I write to request your help in encouraging your residents to become members of SAMBA.

    A goal of the resident section for the coming year is to increase resident involvement in SAMBA committees with a goal of having a resident member on at least 50% of the SAMBA committees.  I ask that you reach out to your residents and help them identify a committee that would fit their interests. Listed below are the SAMBA committees:

        SAMBA Committee on Electronic Newsletter
        SAMBA Committee on Membership
        SAMBA Committee on Affiliation
        SAMBA Committee on International Relations
        SAMBA Committee on Education
        SAMBA Committee on Research
        SAMBA Sub-Comittee on Resident Section
        SAMBA Committee on Publications
        SAMBA Committee on Office-Based Anesthesia
        SAMBA Committee on Scientific Papers
        SAMBA Committee on Latin American Relations
        SAMBA Committee on Mid Year Meeting
        SAMBA Task Force on Clinical Practice
        SAMBA Committee on Regional Anesthesia
        SAMBA Committee on Society Website
        SAMBA Task Force on Ambulatory and Office-Based Fellowships
        SAMBA Committee on Annual Meeting

    To contact a committee leader, please visit the Committees page on the SAMBA website today.

    From a resident's perspective, SAMBA is laden with phenomenal opportunities for professional development.  The society is a close-knit network with a very well produced and accessible annual meeting.  Furthermore, the Society provides a multitude of opportunities for resident involvement in the inner workings of the Society.

    If I can be of any assistance in recruiting your residents or helping them select a committee please do not hesitate to contact me or to direct your residents directly to me.  As resident members are the future of the Society, it is of the utmost importance that we approach resident recruitment with continued enthusiasm. Thank you for taking the time to help with these efforts, and I look forward to meeting you in the coming year. 

    Feel free to contact me!
