Senior members can also join the Senior Member Consortium ("Consortium") to ensure continued involvement in the neurology profession by:

  • Sharing experiences and expertise
  • Holding discussions on preparing for a life transition
  • Sharing possible second career paths and volunteer opportunities
  • Discussing ways to financially prepare for retirement

The Consortium has also assisted AAN senior members in remaining involved in AAN activities. The Consortium, currently at approximately 1,600 members, meets once a year at the AAN's Annual Meeting.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Senior Member Consortium, please contact Member Services (800) 879-1960 or (612) 928-6000 .
