|News from the Membership Committee|
The Membership Committee is tasked with reviewing the needs of the membership of the SCMR to ensure they are met. This committee recently proposed several changes to the dues structure, including redefining “Trainee” members include medical students, residents, PhD students, and post-doctoral associates, instead of limiting this category to those in the first four years of their training. We plan to work closely with the International Outreach Committee to provide training and mentorship opportunities to members in countries outside Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and the USA, and to assess programs such as the Associate Membership to better understand the needs of these members. The Membership Committee is interested in hearing from individual members of the SCMR about their experiences and would gladly accept any suggestions or comments about how the SCMR can better serve their interests.Thank you for being a member!
