A Message from the President - Dr. Jeffrey Summers
Monday, May 18, 2015
The Board of Directors of the International Spine Intervention Society would like to extend its deepest gratitude to Jordon Moncrief, who served our organization for almost 26 years including many years as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). By mutual agreement, Ms. Moncrief has left our organization and will pursue educational as well as other opportunities.
The Board has selected Margaret Klys to serve as CEO and lead our Society in pursuit of our mission. Ms. Klys possesses valuable experience from other medical associations and comprehensive knowledge of our field, as she has served as our Director of Health Policy for the past 5 years. She possesses a Masters Degree of Jurisprudence in Health Law from Loyola University School of Law and is a Certified Association Executive (CAE).
We would also like to acknowledge the commitment and effort of all of our dedicated professional staff members who are going the extra mile to support our Society during the transition period. We know that we are in good hands and will continue to thrive as a society of integrity and influence and the leading organization in interventional spine education, research, standards, and advocacy.
Ms. Moncrief has asked that we convey the following message to all of the members with whom she worked over the years:
“At the end of 2014 I experienced a series of personal events that made a profound impact on my life. After contemplation and 26 years of service to the International Spine Intervention Society, I leave with gratitude and a sincere thank you to everyone involved in the organization. Farewell and all the best.”
