The American Association of Neuropathologists began around 1930 as a professional, educational organization representing American Neuropathologists. It was incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania in 1960. Over the years the Association has grown to over 800 members with a substantial number of foreign members. The purpose of the Association is to advance the science and practice of neuropathology. Each June, we hold our annual meeting, which includes a one-day Special Course on some neuropathologic topic with invited faculty, two days of scientific sessions (platform and poster) where our members or their guests present original research, and a half-day Presendential Symposium. This annual meeting has been approved by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education on an hour-per-hour basis. Since 1981, the official forum of the American Association of Neuropathologists has been the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, one of the premier neuroscience journals in the world. Membership in the AANP is divided into Affiliate, Associate, and Active categories with annual dues of $140, $155, and $165, respectively. Membership privileges include, among others, a yearly subscription to the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, and admission at reduced registration fee to the Annual Meeting.
