Last fall the PTS requested responses to a Membership Survey from our mailing list. Thank you to the 300+ respondents for your feedback. The Pediatric Trauma Society was created to serve the needs of the community and feedback from the membership is critical in developing an organization that meets those needs.

In January, the PTS opened the call for applicants to apply for the opportunity to join the leadership of the Society as a Co-Chair for the proposed committees. We received applications from 38 highly qualified individuals.

In an effort to build our international resources, the PTS Executive Board voted to add two ad hoc global subcommittees within the Education and Membership Committees. Benedict Nwomeh was named chair of the Global Education subcommittee and Kevin Ban and Leonardo Bussolin have been appointed co-Chairs of the Global Membership sub-committee.

In each newsletter issue we will be one of more of our committees. By reading more about the Chairs of the Committee as well as their goals we hope you will be compelled to join them in completing this important work for our community.
