The State of the Society: Reports from IDWeek 2014 Business Meeting
Before passing the gavel of the IDSA presidency to Steven Calderwood, MD, FIDSA, Barbara Murray, MD, FIDSA, reported on the “State of the Society” during the recent IDWeek 2014. Emphasizing the vital role that members play, Dr. Murray touched on the many initiatives and programs in which the Society has been engaged over the past year including significant work in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, continued efforts to communicate the value of the ID specialist, strides in improving care for patients with HCV, and advancements toward our goal of developing new diagnostic tests.

As noted in the Secretary’s report, last year the Society added a new membership category for medical students and residents in order to foster interest in the field of infectious diseases. The total membership in these categories combined has tripled in number over the past year. IDSA now represents more than 10,000 physicians and scientists who specialize in ID, including more than 1,300 members outside the United States.

The Treasurer’s report indicates that the Society is financially sound. The Board of Directors is confident in the Society’s ability to continue to address strategic priorities over the next few years, including the Society’s efforts to promote domestic and global public health, research, and the value of the ID specialist; to attract medical students to the field; and to combat antimicrobial resistance.

Full reports from the President, Secretary and Treasurer can be found in the Board of Directors section of the IDSA website.
