Chapters are the channels of representation and communication for individual members and provide the opportunity for members to get involved in committees, programs, and College initiatives. We are a busy, energetic Chapter! Here are just some of our activities and member services: • Annual weekend CME Conference • Weekly electronic newsletter, “News You Can Use” • Quarterly newsletter “The Surgical Scene” • Legislative Advocacy o Issues Committee o Surgeons’ Day at the Capitol • Rural Surgery Committee • Two Young Surgeons scholarships for the Leadership & Advocacy Summit • Annual Humanitarian Surgical Resident Travel Grants • Participation in the College’s Committee on Trauma and Commission on Cancer • page • And more! The Virginia Chapter is member supported. Whether you are a medical student planning a career in Surgery, a surgical resident in training, a fellow in a surgical subspecialty, an academic surgeon or a community-based surgeon; or whether you are a young physician or a seasoned practitioner we need YOU! The Chapter offers a medium through which surgical experiences may be presented and discussed and constitutes a common ground for specialties in various branches of surgery to communicate with each other. Chapters provide a forum through which young surgeons, who have not yet gained membership in more limited surgical societies, can share their thoughts and experiences with more established surgeons. Finally, it is through the College’s chapters that Fellows in the community are able to cooperate with other professionals and with civic groups, third-party carriers, and state government agencies that are concerned with community health care and the socioeconomic and legislative aspects of health care. In addition, Fellows support College activities through local College chapters such as the field force in trauma and the Cancer Liaison Program of the Commission on Cancer. The annual meetings of the Virginia Chapter are held in conjunction with the Virginia Surgical Society. The meeting program will offer exciting speakers and informative presentations. But, equal in importance, it will be at our annual gathering that we exchange information, form friendships, and solidify our presence in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
