SOCIETY OF GOVERNMENT SERVICE UROLOGISTS (SGSU) AND UROLOGICAL SOCIETY FOR AMERICAN VETERANS (USAV) FORMALLY AGREE TO JOIN TOGETHER
At its Annual Business Meeting in San Diego on January 14, 2017, the SGSU membership voted to approve an affiliation arrangement with the newly established USAV – which represents VA urologists nationwide.
SGSU President, Dr. Hal Frazier stated that the SGSU has recognized for many years that VA urologists are not being well integrated into the SGSU. He stated that it makes a lot of sense to join together and that both organizations can benefit. USAV President, Dr. Jeffrey Jones, said that this would be a great opportunity for both organizations and the relationship could bring new members, programs and synergies to both organizations. The USAV- organizational affiliation with SGSU was also approved to allow the USAV to fall under 501c6 status and be in compliance with AUA organizational standards for an independent organization.
