CSA Online First
CSA Online First is a weekly blog featuring insights from CSA members themselves.
Edited by Emily Methangkool, MD, MPH, with contributions from CSA’s Committee on Professional and Public Communications, Online First is a place where knowledge and opinion from any one of our 3200 plus physician-anesthesiologist members can be shared, discussed and deliberated to advance the specialty of anesthesiology, the practice of medicine and society in general.

Represent Your Peers on CSA’s House of Delegate – Nominations Now Open
The 2023 election season kicked off last week and it’s your chance to get involved in CSA’s leadership. Each year CSA launches an open nomination period for representatives of the geographic districts and mode-of-practice forums.
If you are looking for an opportunity to engage with CSA or taking a new step in advocating for your specialty and your peers, getting involved in CSA’s leadership as a director or delegate is a unique opportunity to do just that.
Becoming a CSA district or forum director or delegate will allow you to shape the future of the CSA, help ensure its success, and serve your society, fellow physician anesthesiologists, and patients.
If you are interested, I highly encourage you to self-nominate through our process. Nominations are now open and will be accepted until February 10th.
Interested members should first visit the CSA 2023 nominations homepage, where you can find more information about the districts and forums, the number of delegates allocated for each, and a description of the roles and responsibilities for the new directors and delegates.
Finally, I would like to sincerely commend the valuable leadership and many contributions of our current leadership.
If you have any questions about the nomination process, geographic districts, or mode-of-practice forums, please contact CSA Deputy Executive Director Megan MacNee at email@example.com or (916) 290-5830.
