    How important is it to be the member of all these 'pain clubs'?
    I am already a member of AAPMR, ASIPP, ISIS and also NASS. NASS is very relevant for spine surgeons. I also love the spine journal. I am wondering whether to continue the membership of NASS for coming year 2006? It is pretty expensive just to continue the membership for purpose of reading only spine journal.
    What do you guys think? Thanks for your opinion.

    Ask yourself which organizations represent you in your profession, whether there is a significant representation of pain physicians on the board of such organizations, whether the politics of the organizations represent your ideas, and whether the cost of the organizations are proportional to what you derive in benefit from the organization.

    Honestly, i have not benefitted from any pain association than algosdoc school of pain medicine without any membership fee. :thumbup: http://www.algosresearch.org . No association is representing interventional physiatrist like me. may be it is time to start new pain association called American Society of Interventional Physiatrists. (ASIP). seriously. :idea:
