To the Editor Dr Campbell makes excellent points in his article titled “Whatever Happened to Local Otolaryngology Societies?” regarding the decreasing attendance and disappearance of local otolaryngology societies.1 This is a tragic trend because these local society meetings offer unique opportunities to meet local practitioners in their geographic area and build camaraderie that may not be available at the large meetings. Moreover, many such meetings have deep historical significance and can provide unique environments to learn and reflect with each other.
