To avoid disappointment in receiving your card, please renew your membership (if applicable) and then update your address details on the members page of the EANS website. Cards will only be sent to EANS individual members whose membership is still valid- in other words, those who are up to date with their membership fees. If you are unsure whether you have paid your membership, please contact Lucinda Foster.
We are currently looking into possibilities and resources for offering more interesting bonuses to our members as well as for developing the EANS website into an interactive meeting point for European neurosurgeons.
Any suggestions, queries and ideas are very welcome - we'd love to hear from you, so please contact Lucinda Foster.
