CONGRESS REGISTRATION

The registration process for the 2021 Congress has opened. It has been an extraordinary year which has impacted us all in both our working and home lives. Some members have found themselves on the front lines against covid, others have been isolated from normal day to day interaction with colleagues and friends. Despite this, and the toll and stress of worrying about our loved ones, many of you have continued to work tirelessly on behalf of the Society.
Since last year’s meeting, the Society has come together to organise a virtual Ultrasound and Spine Course. A large faculty have agreed to prepare talks and moderate sessions for the 2021 Congress, many other members have volunteered to develop online educational material for the website and the Committee Chairpersons and members continue in the day to day work needed to keep the Society active. For these reasons, after careful consideration, the Executive Committee would like to thank all of you for your efforts, by making registration for the online 2021 Congress free of charge for Members
