President's Message

Dear Colleagues:

I am proud to announce that CIS has just launched its brand new website. As most of you are aware, CIS has spent a significant amount of time and effort working with a third-party web designer on the redesign of the new website. We are immensely pleased to finally see the cohesiveness between the look and feel of our website, and the direction of CIS.


Over the years, the CIS website has become a valuable resource to our members, and to those who attend our annual meetings, and even those who want to catch up on a webinar that they missed. The fresh visual aids and new organizational strategy will ensure that our content and messaging matches the innovation we promote, and continue to serve and support our members.


Our sincere appreciation to all who completed surveys or participated in focus groups for this project. The research conducted helped us with content creation, as well as the web design. However, we recognize that this is an ongoing project, and therefore, we actively solicit your feedback and opinion.  If we can improve our content or design to be more user-friendly, please do not hesitate to contact the CIS Staff with your thoughts.  We depend on our website users to ensure our website meets the needs of everyone.


Additionally, you will notice a slight change to the CIS logo. While CIS leadership were very attached to our previous logo, we feel that the launch of our new website also gives us an opportunity to upgrade our “brand” and image. Our new logo visually emphasises “Immunology”, mirroring the mission and overall focus of CIS Council, Membership and Staff.


I am delighted to unveil these new developments to you as an exciting step into the future for CIS.
