Message from the President
First and foremost, I would like to thank the members of the society for the privilege to become the President elect of the Malaysian Society of Otorhinolaryngologists-Head & Neck Surgeon (MSO-HNS) at our 32nd Annual General Meeting on 28th June 2012 at the KLCC Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur and subsequently continue as the President for the year 2013 - 2014. It is indeed a great honour to be elected to this position and I pledge to serve to the best of my ability. I must also congratulate Prof. Dr Primuharsa Putra, the president for the year 2012 - 2013 and the executive committee members for 2012 - 2013 on a successful year and for their commitment and dedication over the past twelve months.
Over the last 30 years, ORL - HNS has undergone a major expansion. We have improved our teaching of ORL - HNS and our service to the public. Our members have increased tremendously in number. The latest total number of our members is 340.
We intend to continue the following activities during the year 2013 - 2014 : the 9th Malaysia-Singapore joint Scientific Meeting which will be held in Malaysia in 2013 - 2014, MSO-HNS Health Camp 2014, the Annual Scientific Meeting 2014, and the climax will be the 6th Asia Pacific Otology, Neurotology & Skull Base conference / 5th ASEAN Academy of Neuro-Otology & Audilogy (AANOA) congress/ Inaugural ASEAN Rhinology Society congress/ 6th Malaysian International ORL - HNS Congress/ 34th MSO-HNS AGM. To improve our CPD activities, MSO-HNS will streamline and coordinate the activities with formation of CPD specialty subcommittee for Otology, Rhinology and Head & Neck, Laryngology. The key to the continued success for MSO-HNS is the participation of our members. I urge members to get involved in our organization and stay engaged and united. Give your ideas, time and expertise. It is after all, your society.
As an organization, MSO-HNS will only be as strong as the talents and contributions of its collective membership. I would like to extend a special ‘thank you’ in advance to all of the members who will volunteer their time and because of their generosity and expertise, MSO-HNS is a thriving organization. I look forward to an exciting year and interacting with a very special group of individuals! Working together we can make 2013 - 2014 another great year!

President of MSO-HNS
