Q: What attributes will you seek in our future Academy leaders? What experience do you have that will aid in selecting leaders that will advance the mission of the Academy?

Peter Manes, MD

It is an honor to be nominated for the Nominating Committee, and I would like to thank the current Nominating Committee for this opportunity. In seeking our future Academy leaders, my goal is to identify people that represent, not just our current Academy, but rather the Academy we want for the future. We need to make sure that our leaders represent people from all different aspects of otolaryngology and walks of life. Such diversity can take many forms, and it is only through a vibrant and diverse group of leaders that we can continue to move our specialty forward.

I have had the opportunity to be involved with many individuals within the Academy through my work as the RUC advisor for the Academy, on various committees, through the SRF, and through leadership positions within other organizations such as the American Rhinologic Society. Such experiences have allowed me to see the attributes of strong leaders, including patience, inclusion, vision for the future, and a sense of selflessness. I hope to use these and other attributes to identify the future leaders of our specialty. My goal is to present to you the individuals you want leading our Academy. I hope I am afforded the opportunity.
