CPS Board of Directors Update
Dear CPS Community,
I am writing to inform you that Dr. Mojgan Hodaie will be leaving her position as Treasurer on Sunday, January 31st, 2021, so that she can take on new education-related portfolios in the division of Neurosurgery at her institution.
Personally, and on behalf of the CPS, I want to thank Moji for her dedication and outstanding service to CPS over the last 18 months. Her hard work, steady hand, wise council, and creative ideas have contributed greatly to the CPS shining as a society and becoming more strongly engaged with our membership. For example, Moji had proposed creating what we now have all experienced: our highly successful CPS+ webinar program. We wish Moji all the best in her new role that no doubt will make a significant impact locally, and internationally, towards improving educational programs and a better understanding and treatment of pain and other neurological conditions.
To fill this position, the CPS will be holding a special election. We encourage all our members to participate in the process, both in nominating suitable candidates (self-nominating is welcome) and voting to elect the next CPS Treasurer. The submission portal for nominations will be open Friday, December 11th; deadline to apply is Wednesday, January 6th, 2021.
As always, I thank you for your commitment to CPS; our Society is nothing without its strong membership.
On behalf of the CPS Board of Directors,
Karen D. Davis, Ph.D., FCAHS, FRSC
President, Canadian Pain Society
Professor, Department of Surgery and Institute of Medical Science
University of Toronto
Head, Division of Brain, Imaging and Behaviour

2021 Annual Scientific Meeting
call for Symposia and Poster Abstracts: closed
We’re excited to announce our first fully virtual CPS Annual Scientific Meeting for April 27-30 2021!
Many factors have gone into this decision. Yes, the uncertainty concerning how the next year will unfold is high on our list, but we are also excited that this new event creates an exceptional opportunity for us to bring our community together, from all regions of the country, and around the world.
Having consulted with those inside and outside the Society, our Scientific Program Committee (SPC) firmly believes that coming together in a virtual setting will expand the opportunity for all participants -- scientists, healthcare professionals, trainees and people with lived experience of pain -- to meet and exchange up-to-date information on pain mechanisms, assessment, and management. The SPC will offer a balanced, diverse, and cutting-edge scientific program that reflects different areas of science from the pain community.
Your participation is integral for the success of our ASM, and the continued progress of pain research, education and management.
We will be sending out regular updates as we build our program and virtual event.
The joint call for Symposia and Poster Abstracts for the 41st Annual Scientific Virtual Meeting, April 27-30 is now closed. Notifications will be sent in December.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact: the CPS Office: firstname.lastname@example.org
