Association wins award for Best Member Support During COVID-19
Friday 8 October 2021
The 2021 Memcom Membership Excellence Awards were held on 30 September, recognising and celebrating excellence in professional bodies, associations, charities and the wider not-for-profit sector.
We were delighted to win an award for Best Member Support During COVID-19. Throughout the pandemic, the Association provided its membership with free COVID-19 guidance and resources, which have been accessed more than 150,000 times. We also published multiple case studies from frontline health workers and ran numerous free webinars. Bookings for these webinars spanned over 85 countries, illustrating the international demand for up-to-date patient care guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recordings of all webinars were also made available for members and the speciality to download for free. The recordings were accessed more than 50,000 times. We also offered complimentary membership for returning NHS staff, due to the pandemic. This was to ensure that returning anaesthetists had access to the latest guidance and support from their Association.
In a year where the Memcom awards received more entries than ever before, it was incredibly rewarding to see the Association recognised for its contribution to the specialty. Congratulations and many thanks to all the Association staff and members who helped us achieve this success.
