Annual Meeting: July 29, 2017 - Washington, D.C.
I have read the AAN Bylaws and understand the Membership Committee will make a non-binding recommendation on this application to the General Membership at the Annual Meeting.
Representatives from our organization are planning to attend the Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
Applicants are eligible for member rates to the convention.
Would you be interested in attending a get-together for applying organizations at the Annual Meeting?
