Thank you for a wonderful year!
Our annual meeting in San Diego this year was possibly our best meeting ever. The Program Committee deserves a great deal of credit for superbly organizing, and it’s awfully hard to have a great program without amazing speakers. Thank you to each of them, and to all of you in attendance for bringing such enthusiasm and for submitting and presenting your own neuroethics research.

As this year comes to an end, we encourage you to consider making a contribution to the Society. Donations are critically important for the health of the organization, and even a small contribution can make a big difference toward our ability to advance neuroethics. Donations, as well as gift memberships formally introducing your colleagues to the Society, are a great way to support the INS this holiday season. Thank you!

You can also contribute your viewpoint through our membership survey . Please take a few minutes to provide your opinion on important neuroethics topics, Society activities, member benefits, and more. Your insights are important to the INS leadership as they consider, pursue and develop new activities for 2019 and beyond.

Best wishes from the INS staff and leadership!
