It has been a distinct honor and privilege for me to serve as a copresident of the new American Head and Neck Society. This has been a highlight of my academic career, and I would like to thank my wife and family for their support. I have been closely associated with the Society of Head and Neck Surgeons (SHNS) since 1982 and have had the honor of serving in various capacities, including as secretary, for 4 years. If you do not like somebody—make him secretary! However, serving the society gave me an opportunity to develop friendships with many head and neck surgeons around the world.
