As another year draws to a close, I want to thank you for your continued support as an American Academy of Sleep Medicine member. While vital for the AASM, your membership also helps unite and strengthen the entire sleep medicine community.

The AASM has enjoyed a successful year in 2015, and there is much more in store for us in the coming months, including the official launch of our new telemedicine platform in January, the Sleep Medicine Trends course in February, and the SLEEP 2016 annual meeting in June. In all we do, the AASM remains focused on equipping you to navigate the future of sleep medicine.

If you have not yet renewed your membership for 2016, I encourage you to renew before the end of December. We need your ongoing support in the year ahead.

I hope you and your loved ones enjoy a meaningful holiday season filled with laughter, joy and warmth, and I wish you all the best in the New Year.
