Nominating Committee Nominations Due 
Nominations for Nominating Committee Members due March 31, 2014.
This is how it works:  join the conversation by nominating  your candidate (or yourself) to stand for election to the Nominating Committee.  This processs is how SPR members "pick the people who pick the people."
The Members of the SPR Nominating Committee are both nominated and voted on by the Society’s Active Members. Each year, the responsibility of the Nominating Committee is to develop the slate of officers to be voted on by the Members.
To nominate an SPR member to serve on the Nominating Committee (the committee that identifies the next leaders of the Society), Active members are asked to submit this online Nomination form and arrange for a second Active Member to submit a letter/email of support sent to jboylan@acr.org. Self-nomination is both permitted and encouraged.

Webinar Offered for 3/14-15 Consensus Meeting

Consensus Panel on the Diagnosis and Best Classification of Fetal and Postnatal Renal Dilatation with Correlation to Postnatal Outcomes Antenatal diagnosed renal dilatation (ADRD) is one of the most commonly diagnosed fetal anomalies, occurring in 1-5% of pregnancies.  Although several grading systems exist for the grading of ADRD, there is a need for a unified strategy to diagnose and classify this spectrum of disorders across the many specialties that care for these patients and their families.
The goal of this meeting is to develop a summary consensus statement on the diagnosis and best classification system for fetal and postnatal renal dilatation with correlation to postnatal outcomes.  It will be the combined effort of several multidisciplinary neonatal and perinatal societies with the goal of optimizing the counseling of parents and the care of children with ADRD.

Panelists and Speakers will represent the following organizations:  Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, American College of Radiology, Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, Society for Fetal Urology, Society of Pediatric Radiology, and the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology.
