The Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists

Membership Committee Update

The SOCCA membership committee had quite a busy year in 2023, and we are now working diligently with our new management team to continue to provide valuable programming for our members. 

The Early Career Intensivists group and the Physicians in Private Practice group are organizing their events for 2024. At the time of this publication, we will already have held our first events for each group, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the remaining events this year! The Fellows and Residents group also plans to host our annual Job Fair in the fall. Please visit the calendar on the SOCCA website for more information about the dates and times of future events and how to register.

The SOCCA Early Career Intensivist group also held a webinar in November 2023 to learn about contract negotiation with Dr. Gerald Maccioli. The webinar recording is now available online for review, and our member, Dr. Christy Idichandy, reviews the webinar content in this issue of the Interchange. 

We will also be making more vigorous efforts this year to update our database to ensure that members are always aware of activities of particular interest to them. This endeavor will require help from all of you to update your profiles when you next renew your membership (if not sooner!), but we promise that the few extra clicks will be worth it.

We are always open to suggestions and ideas for how SOCCA can better serve you, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to anyone on our committee at any time.

The Committee is also excited to meet new and old members in Seattle at the Annual Meeting on May 17th-19th, 2024. With the new meeting format, our committee will have more opportunities to meet and network. The Committee meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th, at 11:00 am. We hope to see you there!
