Alumni Receptions

At the heart of The Culture of Neurosurgery are personal relationships. We have all missed gatherings and spending time socially with colleagues, classmates and friends. To that end, the AANS offers a special opportunity for alumni to reconnect with their peers and mentors during the 2022 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia next April.

The AANS offers three different planning options to accommodate various budgets for securing your room, finalizing food options and bar packages and sending out your invitations to alumni. The AANS will take care of the legwork, so you can enjoy a fun-filled, much-anticipated evening of connections, conversation and laughter

Planning Option
1. Your organization will plan the function and send out your own invitations. $75
2. The AANS will plan the function but your organization will send out your own invitations. $125
3. The AANS will plan the function and send out the invitations1. $200
