INDIAN SOCIETY OF NEURO-ONCOLOGY (ISNO)
Elections to Executive Committee (EC) 2023-2026


Dear ISNO member

The results of the last elections of the ISNO EC held in Jan-Mar 2020 were kept in abeyance for a year due to the cancellation of ISNOCON 2020 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The EC decided to extend the term of all the then existent Office-bearers of the Society for one year till the next ISNOCON. Results of the Elections held in 2020 were declared at the General Body Meeting held virtually during ISNOCON 2021 with newly elected members officially taking their positions from April 2021. The continuation of the pandemic forced the Society to hold an abbreviated ISNOCON 2022 in physical format earlier this year (August 2022), but the Elections which were due in Jan-Mar 2022 could not be held due to logistic reasons. The tenure of then existent EC was further extended by one year. It has now been decided to hold the Elections to various positions for the EC from Jan-Mar 2023, results of which would be applicable from April 2023-2026.
