From the President

Dear Colleagues,

The New Year brings with it new strategies for achieving our goals and a brand new look. I am pleased to unveil our updated logo and images for the website and our virtual communications, designed to take us into the second decade of the 2000s.

This special eNewsletter edition gives you a glimpse into the genesis and evolution of NANETS, with changes to its brand identity and themes serving as symbols of our continued growth and advancement as the premier neuroendocrine research and education society in North America.

It is not just our look that is new. Read about the new pNETS Guidelines published earlier this month in Pancreas, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our distinguished multidisciplinary panel of NET experts.

NANETS Board of Trustees has also initiated a new committee structure and is considering a number of new initiatives as a result of the engagement of our members. NANETS bylaws have been amended to support the addition of a new board seat and celebrates the election of Arvind Dasari, MD to fill the new seat.

The newly reviewed Member Interest Survey has provided NANETS' board with richly detailed data that resulted in committee expansion, and set us on a new course for diversifying membership and developing pathways for early career professionals.

I hope you find the first newsletter of the new year to be full of valuable information and projects that will propel the society and its members into 2020 and beyond.

Thank you for your involvement.

James Howe
