Investing in Our Future with the
ISMRT + One
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The new ISMRT + One Membership Drive is an exciting and unique opportunity for members to invest in the future of the ISMRT.
We are fortunate that the renewed contract with Wiley, the publisher of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (MRM) and Journal of Magnetic of Resonance Imaging (JMRI), has led to ISMRT members receiving access to both journals at no cost. In an era of rising costs and economic challenges, this is great news indeed.
Unfortunately, many of us, especially our trainee and associate colleagues, are struggling with the economic challenges the world is currently facing. I see this as a barrier to the recruitment of the future our Society—our youngest colleagues and our colleagues from developing regions.
Despite these challenges, many of us are blessed with more fortunate economic circumstances.
And so for those of you who are able, I invite you to participate in the ISMRT + One Membership Drive by considering an investment in the future of our Society. By passing on your savings, you can make an impactful donation towards our future by supporting our colleagues from developing regions as well as our trainee colleagues. For those that are able, you may wish to make additional donations to this important fund-raising effort.
The Society leadership has identified the recruitment of trainee and associate members from regions of the developing world by the Society as a major priority.
I am thrilled to invite participation of the Governing Board towards the ISMRT + One Membership drive, and I thank them in advance for their generosity. I am pleased to announce that personally I have sponsored 12 trainee members, and I am excited to provide this access to these outstanding MR radiographers/technologists.
Please join us by making a contribution, small or large, to this important initiative, so we can expand the opportunity for these colleagues to enjoy the wonderful benefits of being part of the ISMRT Community.

If you wish for your donation to be applied to cover the membership fees for any particular trainee/associates and/or trainees/associates from an under-represented region of the world, please contact the ISMRT at firstname.lastname@example.org.
