As I reflect on our inaugural meeting, where attendance actually broke all previous records, where the quality of the program set a new high bar for both excellence and breadth of educational offerings, and the vibrancy and excitement surrounding the new society, I am humbled to be your President for the coming year.
I will be composing my formal message in which I will review the successes of the past year and, following our strategic planning initiative in the beginning of April, share with you the initiatives that the Society will be taking in both the near and long term.
The excitement was clearly palpable at the meeting; and I will do my best to continue to make the SAR the place for all of your needs in education, practice management, certification, and sharing ideas about how to bring unquestionable value to our patients, our peers and our trainees.
