The BOG is the grassroots member network of the AAO-HNS comprising local, state, regional, and national otolaryngology societies from across the United States and Canada. Open to all Members, BOG annual meeting activities provide the opportunity for you to be a part of key discussions impacting your specialty, your practice, and your patients.

The BOG committee meetings and luncheon will be Saturday, September 17, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel in Indigo CD, as follows:

In addition, the BOG General Assembly will meet from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm Monday, September 19. The General Assembly provides the opportunity to hear BOG committee reports; remarks from the Academy’s president, EVP/CEO, and BOG leadership; and candidate speeches for BOG offices. BOG governors or alternate governors are expected to attend this event and cast their votes on issues and candidates.

Following the meeting, BOG representatives are encouraged to “Bring Home the Academy” by sharing the content and events of the General Assembly with their fellow state/local society members.
