Message from the PNWSP President Elect

PNWSP | Message from the President Elect
December 14, 2020

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to you as a member and the upcoming 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

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 spring meeting on April 24-25, 2021 that will focus on GI pathology featuring Elizabeth Montgomery. This meeting will also be virtual via Zoom and we look forward to your participation. The fall 2021 meeting will be in Portland, Oregon and we hope to be able to have an in-person conference.

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
