Council meeting took place in August 2017 to elect new members of the FAONS Executive Committe and to discuss various FAONS issues
We are happy to announce new members of the FAONS Executive Committee whom were elected in the last Council meeting held in August in Kuala Lumpur, as follows:
Dear FAONS members,
The New Year has already begun, and I would like to express my gratitude and best wishes to all the FAONS members for their participation and support.
Foremost, it is my great honor as the new president of FAONS from 2018 to 2019. I would like to express my appreciation to all of you in allowing me to serve.
Last year, FAONS decided to have a joint congress with the IBRO World Congress 2019 in Daegu (IBRO 2019 Daegu). Since then and for the preparation of a successful congress, we have started the promotional activities such as running a promotional booth at the SfN 2017 meeting, held in Washington D.C., USA. We have also had several constructive dialogues with the FAONS Executive Council members and also held the first Executive Council meeting in Washington D.C.; these have all been valuable towards the goal of planning a successful IBRO 2019 Daegu.
This is going to be another great year for our society. We will continue promoting the Congress globally as well as promoting the advancement of neuroscience research and education in our region. Once again, thank you for your support and the enthusiasm that you have shown in contributing to the success of FAONS.
Best wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Sung-Oh Huh, Ph.D. President of FAONS
President-elect of The Korean Society for Brain and Neural Sciences (KSBNS) 2019
