New members only sections - COMING SOON
The EFSUMB Board of Delegates met at EUROSON 2018 Poznan, Poland and agreed that the the benefits of being an EFSUMB National Society member should include an area of the website exclusively reserved for members which would offer certain advantages and material. We are also currently looking at extending this offer to individuals in return for the payment of a fee. The EFSUMB website is well visited worldwide and whilst this is considered a success story for EFSUMB, we are conscious that the site is funded by our members. We regularly monitor our statistics in an effort to improve our service and believe we can continue to offer high quality ultrasound educational material and information but with this additional perk for our members.
It is expected we can roll out the Members Only facilities within the next few months - these will be added gradually and all members of EFSUMB and the society member countries will be contacted individually with a username and password via email to gain access. It is important that EFSUMB has each individuals up-to-date email address.
Further announcements for the Members Only Section will be released on the EFSUMB Social media Channels and via public access to the EFSUMB Home Page. If you believe you should have access and have not received an email by January 2019 please contact the EFSUMB Web Administrator via firstname.lastname@example.org
