The NESS By-Laws may be amended by a two-thirds electronic vote of the membership within 30 days following the Annual Meeting of the Society when it has been proposed provided that the proposed alteration has been approved by the Executive Committee and electronically circulated to the Society at least 60 days preceding the vote. The NESS Executive Committee has approved a By-Laws amendment, to be voted upon by electronic ballot within 30 days following the 2014 Annual Meeting, which:

  1. Defines Associate Membership qualifications so that someone may apply to be an Associate member. Currently, one can only become an Associate member by first being an Active member, then moving outside of New England. Someone who thus trained within New England but has since moved outside the region yet still remains interested in the Society would be able to join the NESS as an Associate member.

  2. Creates a new Candidate Membership category so that trainees in a surgical residency or fellowship education program within the New England States, or those who have completed such a program but do not yet meet the criteria for Active or Associate membership, may apply to be a Candidate member.

NESS Membership

The New England Surgical Society online membership application site for 2015 is now open. New candidate applications must be initiated by current NESS Active and Senior members via the Members Only Area. Each candidate's electronic membership application must be completed and submitted online by July 31, 2014, and all support letters must be uploaded by the candidate's three sponsors after receiving notification that the candidate has completed the application (and before the state caucus during the Annual Meeting). To sponsor a candidate for membership consideration in 2015, please initiate his/her application via the NESS Members Only Area—once you have logged in, select "Sponsor a New Member" and enter the requested information.
