June, 2009 – Member Update
Dear SAVIR members:
It is a busy time of year as we move into summer. Below are several announcements and opportunities to continue your involvement with SAVIR.
1. Board Elections
The 2009 Board openings will be announced soon, with a 3-year term to begin in November, 2009. If you would like to be involved in shaping the future of this organization, consider running for the SAVIR Board. Watch for announcements regarding nominations (by self or others) in late summer.
2. Member Success Stories
We want to share your stories and accomplishments! As a new feature of our website, we will have a rotating Member Success Stories section in the SAVIR Blog (to highlight recent activities, accomplishments, and achievements of SAVIR members). If you would like to highlight something from your work or your agency’s work, please send a description (no more than 130 words) to: email@example.com.
3. Injury Course Listings & Syllabi
The Training and Infrastructure Committee has collected teaching materials to provide as a resource to fellow Violence and Injury professionals. The committee continues to seek teaching materials to post on the SAVIR website. To access course listings & syllabi materials and to upload new material, please go to: http://www.savirweb.org/content/index.php?pid=53
4. From SAVIR Column
Watch for the piece titled “From SAVIR” in each issue of Injury Prevention. The next issue will feature information about core competencies for the field of injury control (http://www.injuryed.org/), and the following issue will address injury prevention within the health care reform agenda.
5. Save-The-Date: SAVIR Bi-Annual Conference 2011
The third Bi-Annual SAVIR Conference will be held in Iowa City April 6 – 8, 2011 at the Marriott (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/cidic-coralville-marriott-hotel-and-conference-center/).

The National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) is the largest aggregation of U.S. trauma registry data ever assembled. The goal of the NTDB is to inform the medical community, the public, and decision makers about a wide variety of issues that characterize the current state of care for injured persons in our country.
