I am writing to you as the 2021 president of the Pacific Northwest Society of Pathologists (PNWSP) to strongly encourage you to renew your dues with the PNWSP for the 2021-2024 (three-year cycle). We appreciate your membership and participation within our society. Dues are $100.00 per year, renewable once every three years. We encourage you to pay your dues on-line at www.pnwsp.org
The PNWSP, a not-for-profit organization, has a prominent role as a provider of pathology educational conferences, twice a year rotating between Portland, Seattle and Vancouver (when life returns to normal). Your membership allows us to provide excellent educational programs with exceptional faculty.
Please save the date and join us virtually for the fall meeting on October 23-24, 2021 with Paul VanderLaan, MD, PhD as our keynote speaker. This meeting will also be virtual via Zoom and we look forward to your participation. We hope to be able to have an in-person conference in the Spring of 2022.
It is vital that the PNWSP maintain and strengthen its membership base. I encourage all existing members to renew their membership, and please encourage any of your colleagues who are not members to join us. Your membership dues are vital for us to invite world-renowned speakers and leaders in pathology to our local meetings.
We look forward to your support and we hope to see you at our next education meeting.
Keith Loeb, MD, PhD
