ENT Immediate Past Division Chair
A big “thank you” to all of you for supporting my role as Division Chair during the past year. I hope you were able to engage in the variety of activities during the Annual Meeting.
As I mentioned at this year’s division meeting, your responses to my requests for insights regarding the Annual Meeting were simply unbelievable. That so many of you would respond with excellent feedback during such a crazy time indicated to me your willingness to serve and your belief in the Division! I had this idea that I would respond to each and every one of you, but alas I did not, so this is my group thank you. I used your feedback to make a case for the ENT Division in the annual meeting and to strongly request AOM reduce the fee for the conference. In the latter, we didn’t win! But your willingness to participate made my job easier. For your “enjoyment” here is a very small sampling of parts of the over 250 messages you sent me.
I want to remind you of the mentoring and mentee opportunities afforded through our mentoring platform at https://connect.aom.org/home. We currently have over 100 mentors who have agreed to mentor 1 to 3 students. But with over 900 students, we could definitely use more. I think it is a lot of fun!
Please know that the Division is in very capable hands as Peter Klein (Division Chair), Sarah Jack (Chair Elect), April Franco (Program Chair) and Jon Carr (PDW Chair) fill the leadership roles this next year. Please support them in the way you have done for me.
