Director of Medical Affairs Report - IHQ Changes
To better fulfill The Transplantation Society’s (TTS) mission and serve its membership, which now numbers over 5,000 in 88 countries, we have reorganized and increased our staff in the International Headquarters (IHQ) in Montreal. With the growing volume and diversity of work at the IHQ, the workload of the Director of Society Operations, Filomena Picciano, had become overwhelming. Therefore, the TTS Executives decided to divide her responsibilities into two parts and recruit another senior member for the team.
Other changes in the IHQ include the transferring of responsibility for membership issues from Frank Lindo Verissimo to Alexandra Murphy. Frank will now focus on exhibits for the meetings, working more closely with Filomena and Catherin Parker. Lastly, Sherri Williams has joined the IHQ staff as receptionist and administrative assistant.
This new structure will ensure that we maintain the best possible service to our membership on a daily basis in the IHQ while enhancing our PCO role to plan, organize and run congresses and meetings of the highest caliber, consistent with TTS’ mission.
