The National Register

The Association

The National Register for Congenital Heart Defects is the centerpiece of the Competence Network for Congenital Heart Defects. It is run as an independent non-profit association by the cardiac societies. The National Register for Congenital Heart Defects has its own statutes, Management Board and General Assembly. Friede Springer is the network’s founding patron.

The association’s members consist of sponsoring members and ordinary members. For ensuring the persons in charge to have the necessary expertise, ordinary membership can only be granted to legal persons who are involved in the fields of cardiology, pediatric cardiology or cardiothoracic/vascular surgery by either giving inpatient treatment or being an active scientist.

Ordinary Members

General Assembly and Statutes

Among others, the General Assembly is responsible for the budget of each subsequent business year, the Management Board’s annual report and discharge of the Management Board; furthermore, its responsibilities include setting the membership fees, as well as passing resolutions regarding, for instance, amendments of the statutes. Only ordinary members are entitled to vote. Find more information in the statutes of association. They can be downloaded on this page.
