The SNACC Communications Committee underwent a leadership change this autumn; Arnoley Abcejo, MD handed over the role of chair of the committee to Val Luoma, MBChB, FRCA. We would like to thank Dr. Abcejo for his exceptional leadership, vision, and teamwork with the development of SNACC’s communications, ensuring that we have remained connected and able to share information despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to his ongoing support and exceptional advice for this committee. Thank you!

Despite all our different time zones, the communications committee was able to meet virtually at the SNACC Annual Meeting in September 2021. The second SNACC virtual meeting was a great success and the committee supported it through planning, marketing, and ensuring people were able to connect. Our year ahead will be focused on continuing to develop and expand our communications platforms, along with supporting preparations for the SNACC 50th Annual Meeting September 2022 in Seattle, Washington. Reza Gorji, MD continues to develop and improve our website, and Girija Rath, MD, as editor for the SNACC newsletter.

The social media sub-committee, chaired by Kate Rosenblatt, MD, continues to expand our social media presence. Ib Adedugbe, MD is developing our LinkedIn platform. To connect with SNACC on our new LinkedIn page, join us at ‘Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care’. Our social media channels provide an opportunity for conversation within and outside the SNACC community worldwide, bringing together all those with interest in neuroscience.

We hope to continue to build our network of SNACC ambassadors, working together with all SNACC committees to promote content, increase engagement, and ensure we are connecting with our members worldwide. We are always looking for new communications committee members and would also like to highlight this opportunity to SNACC members who are fellows or still in training. If you are interested in joining or would like more information about the committee, please feel free to contact Dr. Luoma at or anyone else on the committee.

We look forward to hearing from you!
