President’s Column: AUA Strategic Planning Update

During the October 2017 AUA Council Meeting, Council President, Dr . Jeanine Wiener-Kronish reported on the successful alignment of the AUA and International Anesthesia Research society (IARs) meetings. Dr. Weiner-Kronish reported that the attendance was very high for both meetings and the presentations were exceptional. Records indicate that in 2017, 135 attendees of the AUA Annual Meeting also attended the IARs Annual Meeting. In 2016, 136 attendees attended both the AUA and IARs Annual Meetings. In 2015, 44 attendees went to both the AUA and IARs Annual Meetings. The alignment of the AUA and IARs meetings is an important strategy to increase the participation of AUA members in Association activities and increase opportunities for early-stage academic anesthesiologists to advance their careers and receive exposure to AUA and its activities .
