The Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists

Membership Committee Update

SOCCA membership continues to grow, so it is an exciting time to be on the membership committee! The committee met at the annual meeting in Seattle in May and had extensive discussions about how best to continue to serve our members. We also had an in-person meet-up co-sponsored by Women in Critical Care (WICC) and Early Career Intensivists (ECI) workgroups, which was well attended by conference attendees. Given the success of this event, we will make arrangements to do something similar at the ASA and SCCM annually. We want to continue providing virtual meet-up opportunities throughout the year to supplement all the educational offerings from the Education committee. We are planning to have quarterly meetups for the Physicians in Private Practice group (PPP), the Early Career Intensivists (ECI), and Women in Critical Care (WICC). The calendar for these events can be found on the SOCCA website. We also look forward to hosting our annual Job Fair in the fall, on October 2, 2024. 

This summer, we are looking forward to welcoming new members to our committee. We are eager to revamp our mentorship program and reconnect with former members. But most importantly, we want to hear from you! Your ideas and suggestions are invaluable to us. If you have any thoughts that the membership team can assist with, please don’t hesitate to share. We are committed to ensuring that our members derive maximum value from their memberships.
