This group is a committee which hears formal complaints by American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) members against other AANS members (Article II, Section 3 of AANS Bylaws). The AANS President appoints members of this Committee and the Committee itself reports to the AANS Board of Directors. Committee procedures are published in the Society Policy Manual. Complaints submitted to the AANS are referred initially to legal counsel who advises both complainant and respondent of the procedural requirements. Charges and answers are communicated between the parties and, if the committee concludes that a prima facie case of unprofessional conduct has been established, formal hearing before the Committee is scheduled. Findings and recommendations of the committee are reported to the AANS Board of Directors, which may accept, reject, or modify the recommendations of the Committee. A Board of Directors decision to sanction or expel a member may be appealed to the full membership under Article II, Section 3 of the Bylaws. Current Members are:
