One of the many advantages of living in New England are our traditions. Whether enjoying our extensive coastline during the summer or our beautiful mountains in the winter, the natural beauty of New England is breathtaking. More
A virtual lecture series was developed by Urology Program Directors in Massachusetts to facilitate ongoing education during the height COVID-19 crisis in early 2020. New England Section members have graciously volunteered their time and expertise to provide talks on a variety of urology based topics. The virtual lecture series is now open to the full New England Section community and will also be recorded for replay. See upcoming lectures scheduled through January 2021. An online library of past lectures is available to NEAUA members.
Congratulations to NEAUA members who have recently joined the section or who have converted to associate or active member status!

The New England Section Education Fund was created to support NEAUA educational activities in future years. Given recent changes seen in healthcare, politics and industry and knowing there will be more change in the future, the NEAUA leadership established the Fund as a way to ensure longevity of Section education regardless of the landscape. Contributions from the membership will go directly towards the intent of the Education Fund and support educational activity for all members. For the smallest of all the Sections, New England has always been and continues to be one of the strongest. Please consider the New England Sectionís Education Fund in your year-end giving.
Congratulations to the New England Section for winning the inaugural AUAPAC Section Contest! From August 2019-August 2020, the Section members contributed $5,075 to AUAPAC. The Section won various categories of measurement including highest individual donation amount and most funds raised per capita, and tied for highest number of resident/fellow donations during the contest period. The Section will receive a $5,000 grant from AUA Inc. as a result which it will put back into supporting health policy and advocacy activities. This contest was friendly competition between eligible AUA Sections designed to encourage individual donations to AUAPAC, which represents the voice and broad interests of all its domestic members in Washington, DC.
