The major objective of this SIG is the promotion of science and education by:
(a) the exchange of ideas between anaesthetists with a particular interest and involvement in regional anaesthesia.
(b) interaction with other individuals / groups, who share an interest in regional anaesthesia.
The activities of the SIG may include:
It is the responsibility of the SIG Executive Committee to decide on whether to request a segment of the scientific programme or a satellite meeting from the Organising Committee of the chosen annual scientific meeting.
This request should be made in writing at least one year in advance of the meeting and continual liaison with the scientific programme convenor shall be maintained. If any request is denied due to excess other SIGs at the meeting, it is the responsibility of the ACE to seek inclusion in other major scientific meetings / congresses.
Membership will be of two types.
