Texas Transplantation Society changed the structure of its Institutional membership category in order to expand its membership to capture the universe of nearly 2,500 transplant professionals working in Region 4’s transplant centers, OPOs and HLA labs. Texas Transplantation Society’s goal is to reach 100% membership in the society to include all transplant professionals working in Texas and Oklahoma, again, approximately 2500 clinicians and administrators. There were many reasons to do this, chief among them being to:

  • Capture 100% of the transplant talent in Texas and Oklahoma, to strengthen TTS for the future
  • Give an unequivocal, recognized and authentic voice to TTS that is rooted in Tex-as and Oklahoma’s interests
  • Provide real value to Texas and Oklahoma’s transplant centers, OPOs and HLA labs.
  • Strong leading edge science community with easy direct access to best evidence based transplant medicine – the Transplant Library
  • Strong, networked TTS – poised, nimble and able to "act"
  • Substantive Annual Meeting (meeting content, national speakers, relationship/networking/program building opportunities)
  • Substantive Communications (social media, newsletter, President Communications, industry issues communications, etc.)

Texas Transplantation Society made this investment in 2015 to increase the value of the society to the member as well as to strengthen the organization. As importantly, this will allow all transplantation medical and nursing staff in your institutions to have access to the Transplant Library (TL). The TL is a global initiative and will be the future for busy clinicians to access the best readily available evidence based transplant information. This is a relatively simple change, yet a significant one for both the society and the member. TTS’s vision is to be vibrant, inclusive, and authentic based on its enrollment of 100% of transplantation professionals in Texas and Oklahoma being members – our goal.
