As the Councils move toward the new millennium, efforts to improve outcomes for patients with renal disease will be at the forefront. Each council has established a commitment to improving the quality of life for these individuals. Toward this goal, the CNNT, the CRN, and the CNSW will each propose programs to the NKF for improving the knowledge and skills of the professionals within these councils, promoting research within the respective scope of these professions, and working together to bring a better understanding of the issues confronted by the patients and the professionals as well. As an example of the combined effort of the Councils, the first joint project of the century will be to bring the communications packages of each council under a common framework by joining the newsletters of each council. It is an exciting time to be part of the NKF. As a professional in the renal community, being a part of the CNNT, the CRN, or the CNSW offers a professional enrichment and opportunities to participate in making lives better for those with renal disease.
