Call for Interest: Co-Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery

After 10 years in the position, Dr. Erin Wright will be stepping down as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery in June 2017. This notice will serve as a call for interest to fill this vacancy. The current Editors have recommended to Council that the Co-Editor model be maintained. In addition, our publisher has recommended replacing the Editors in a staggered fashion to permit continuity and enable a smooth transition over two years. As such, the plan is for Dr. Hadi Seikaly to step down in 2018 with his replacement to be chosen nearer that time.  Editor-in-Chief role overview

Interested candidates should advise Dr. Peter Spafford (p.spafford@sasktel.net), Nominating Committee Chair, of their interest and supply a letter of interest and brief vision statement. Deadline for letter of interest submission is February 15, 2017.

IFOS World Congress Bid

Check out our new video clip

The Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery has submitted a bid for IFOS to come to Vancouver in 2021. Other bid submissions were received from Argentina, Morocco, Japan and Dubai.

I was hoping you would help lobby the national societies who are members of IFOS to vote for Vancouver at IFOS Paris in 2017. Each member society in good standing gets one vote. The member societies can be found at IFOS member countries .

If you are giving talks at OHNS meetings, attached is a slide  that can be added to your presentation to promote our bid. Additionally, I hope you will reach out to colleagues and former fellows in member countries to help lobby for us.

If successful, we promise to make it an exceptional experience both educationally and socially.
