The summit will take place on Friday, March 13, just before the Leadership Forum Weekend.

“This is an important gathering for leaders from our specialty areas as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology and The Triological Society. I would hope that frank discussions can be conducted that allow us to ascertain areas where we can work well together and synergize our resources and goals,” said James C. Denneny III, MD, EVP/CEO. “It is important that a small specialty, such as otolaryngology, work together whenever possible to maximize its effectiveness in education, research, advocacy, and member services. I would hope that this type of meeting would become a regular event for our specialty leaders in the future. Establishing a good working dialogue would be an essential step for these opportunities to come to fruition.”
