The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) is successful because of connections – connections between diverse members across the globe, a variety of practice settings that continue to change and evolve, and a broad spectrum of perspectives and ideas. This broad level of diversity, perspectives and connections is vital to tackling the challenges of modern pain medicine. ASRA is an emerging society, from its roots in regional anesthesia to now encompassing all aspects of acute and chronic pain.
As we embark on a new decade and enter ASRA’s 45th year, our more than 5,000 members are more diverse and connected than ever. Technology has certainly helped, but so too has a dedication to inclusiveness and collaboration and an unwavering commitment to science and best practices. In 2019, the ASRA Board named “Inclusion” one of its six values (Figure 1), and we are “walking the walk.”
