NCS Annual Meeting
The North Central Section holds an annual meeting each fall to provide a forum for the communication of current knowledge and techniques regarding the treatment and diagnosis of bladder, prostate and kidney diseases. The meeting offers highly informative breakfast sessions, special guest lectures, podium and poster presentations, panel discussions, video presentations and the Bizarre and Interesting Cases session.
NCS Members have access to an online Membership Directory, which contains names, phone numbers and addresses of all NCS members. This valuable resource aids members in networking and keeping in communication with their colleagues.
Following the annual meeting, the NCS publishes a Post-Convention Newsletter which introduces NCS’ new president and includes highlights of the meeting from the secretary, treasurer and past president. The newsletter also includes a state affairs update, which keeps urologists up to date with the ever-changing healthcare policies in the NCS states and how legislation will affect their practice.
