The ASA Committee on Obstetrical Anesthesia serves the members of our great organization by fulfilling the following mission: to promote the best possible anesthesia care to mothers and their children during pregnancy and childbirth by: 1) encouraging and developing the interest of the anesthesi-ologist in the clinical practice of obstetrical anesthesia and the care of the newborn; 2) promoting study and investigation in the field of obstetrical anesthesia; 3) acting as liaison representatives to the various obstetrical organizations, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG); and 4) advocating for obstetrical anesthesia and for our patients with state and federal regulatory and legislative bodies.1  The mission of the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP) is to improve the pregnancy-related outcomes of women and neonates through the support of obstetric anesthesiology research, the provision of education to its members, other providers and pregnant women, and the promotion of excellence in clinical anesthetic care.2  In effect, only subtle differences exist between these two missions, which explain the great working relationship that exists between the ASA committee and the SOAP Board of Directors.
