We close out the year with a message from CPO Chris Wehking, who has overseen ASA’s efforts over the past five years to develop relationships with an ever-growing contingent of international stakeholders. These efforts have paid off in important ways in 2015: international membership is at its highest level ever, a Committee on International Collaboration was just created this fall, and international programming at ASA educational meetings continues to grow. ASA’s global initiatives have greatly enhanced the society’s image and global brand, and the relationships we’ve developed and strengthened with international societies are at unprecedented levels.
Over the past five years, ASA has been successful in enhancing its global image and appeal throughout the world of anesthesiology through collaborative relationships with the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) and a growing number of international societies of anesthesiology. These efforts – along with the efforts of the Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach and ASA Charitable Foundation – continue to demonstrate ASA’s interest and continued contribution toward improving patient safety and quality outcomes worldwide. Through these efforts, ASA, its members and the specialty overall have benefitted in countless ways – and we’ve only just scratched the surface of the opportunities in the future. I’d like to share with you some of the exciting activities and milestones that are raising the profile of the society and making ASA a more valuable association to all its members.
