The role of the Committees within TTS are extremely important to ensure the ongoing development of our Society and make certain that it continues to meet the needs to our membership. As such, it is important that we have a good representation on each committee to address the varied needs of our membership, whether from a geographic, gender or role perspective.
In reviewed the composition of our Committees, we find that the vast majority have good, balanced representation. However, some Committees would benefit from increased diversity, particularly from a geographic standpoint. As such, we are seeking self-nominations to participate in the following Committees: Heart and Lung Committee, Membership Committee and Young Members Committee
Though we have identified needs for additional geographic representation based on the above criteria, we welcome any self-nominations. The Committee Chairs will review the self-nominations to ensure a complete and balanced Committee.
The only expectation of nominees is that they actively participate in committee activities and lead the work of their committee within their respective regions.

Transplantation: November 5, 2020 - Volume Online First - Issue
Spain has led the way in organ donation practices, but they certainly would not have wished to need to lead in COVID-19 responses. Nevertheless their experiences reported here are useful since they have been a country that has had to face the greatest impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The paper describes these impacts and the responses that they used in the country to: develop and progressively update national standards for the evaluation and selection of potential donors and recipients; actively generate evidence to assess those standards and understand the infection in transplant recipients; recommend management of COVID-19 in solid organ transplant recipients; and finally, guide Spanish centers in the management of the crisis. Despite an early rapid downturn in donation and transplantation they show how they have worked their way back to satisfactory levels of safe activity.
The Transplantation Society (TTS) and our journal Transplantation have developed online resources to keep you informed on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
We are also requesting contributions and news from the transplant community to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion on our resources page.
In this dashboard, you will find links to TTS and other global and regional resources, as well as interactive maps, publications and webinars. We encourage you to explore this dashboard and share with your colleagues.
Editors and contributors to Transplantation have shared their thoughts on how they are dealing with the current crisis. While we understand that the information of today may be quite different tomorrow in this fast-moving pandemic, this report will open our forum of an international exchange on COVID for the transplant community.
Please send your own contributions and news to email@example.com for inclusion on our resources page.
