Membership in the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery remains strong, with more than 12,000 Members globally. To enhance the Member experience, the Academy provides meaningful engagement opportunities and encourages participation in activities to increase the overall relevance of the organization to Members and the specialty. By being engaged in the Academy, Members find relevance in many ways.
This past year, we made it easy to get engaged and involved in critical conversations with your peers. Through our new member engagement portal, ENTConnect, you can network and communicate with your peers from around the globe or right in your local community without leaving your office or home. ENTConnect was fully launched to all of our Members in May 2014. Already roughly 10 percent of the total membership is actively posting conversations, updating their profiles, and taking full advantage of this exclusive and private Members-only collaborative environment. The “public forum” feature of ENTConnect is the place for all Members to join the conversation, regardless of whether you are active in a committee or other community. The robust online “directory”allows you to search for colleagues by using specific criteria.
