When I was asked to chair the scientific committee for the 2015 American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) Spring Meeting, there were no hesitations. Although ASRA is the largest subspecialty medical society in anesthesiology, the yearly meetings have been wonderful instruments for intimate networking and individualized learning. As I (BDS) look back on my career, much of my current practice patterns and research ideas were spawned by the innovative educational products offered each year. I fondly remember discussing the potential role of ultrasound guidance with Joe Neal, M.D. and Vincent Chan, M.D. at a time when there were no workshops or lectures on this topic. In a matter of 10 years, the society has helped to educate and train hundreds of physicians in this practice-changing technology. The ability to recognize and disseminate a new concept or skill set through education and research is the hallmark of this meeting and ASRA as an organization.
