AASM Membership Sections Newsletter Issue #2
Communication with the Section Steering Committee
The prior online survey regarding the role of membership sections conveyed
important information. Members’ suggestions included the provision of al-
ternate means to provide education (e.g., webinars), possible development of
an AASM journal club, and increased frequency of meetings. We of the Steer-
ing Committee would appreciate direct feedback regarding desired roles and
goals of the Circadian Rhythms Section. While our group will continue the
efforts outlined above, novel ideas need to emanate from the needs expressed
by the general membership. Please email
any suggestions.
