The Young Neurosurgeons Committee, founded in 1991 by Dr. Roberto C. Heros, has been a vital component of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. It has grown from an opportunity for young neurosurgeons to network with senior neurosurgeons to becoming the major voice of young neurosurgeons and a training ground for the future leaders of organized neurosurgery. The present report has reviewed the leadership involvement of 168 previous Young Neurosurgeons Committee members and briefly highlighted the careers of 4 of these members who have attained leadership positions in neurosurgery.
