Dr. NAVEEN MALHOTRA
Honorary Secretary ISA National
Greetings from ISA National Head Quarters!
I, on completion of first year as Your Secretary ISA, thank you all for believing in me and our vision for ISA. We had a fruitful year and I take this as an opportunity to share some of our achievements so far and our plans for the upcoming year.
This year we witnessed a record membership drive- we welcomed more members into our ISA family than ever before. We not only remained accessible in our office from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM but also on e-mail, what’s app and electronic and social media 24 x7! The process of registration for ISA Life Membership has been simplified to make it easier for everyone. We shortly will have offline and online mode for the membership form soon to streamline the things further. The process for subscription of Indian Journal of Anaesthesia will also be simplified. We plan to introduce two new Zonal Journals and one Online Journals to motivate researchers and practitioners to promptly share clinical case series.
This year also saw multiple academic events like PG Assemblies and CMEs held under the banner of ISA. More than 10 new programmes like YUVA ISA, ISA Fit Anaesthesiologist Compaign, ISA Cultural Club etc. have been started and efforts are on to establish them at city and state level as well. ISA Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme has become a popular programme with the members with more than 1500 new subscriptions in the past year. Training of trainers courses were held at various places to ensure that there is a life saver in each home. The CPR program will help anaesthesiologists prosper academically, clinically, socially and financially.
We have shortened the ISA National Election process from four months to six weeks and also fix the tenure of ISA State and City Office Bearers to ensure that fresh charge is resumed on 16th October every year. To keep pace with the technology, a new ISA app with inbuilt software to help record clinical data and critical incidents shall be introduced very shortly. We have released new ISA T-Shirt and Neck Tie consistent with the colour of our ISA Logo during 67th ISACON 2019 to wear our pride on our sleeve.
ISA is of you, for you and by you.
Jai ISAian !
Long Live ISA!
Jai Hind !
