ANS/AOS receives multiple requests for mass e-mailings and Surveys and Questionnaires to the membership. We realize that our membership has unique expertise which can further our societal objectives of professional education and advancement of neurotology, however the number of requests for email lists and distribution of surveys was growing. The ANS Executive Council wished to provide our membership access to all of the possible information that they would like without having multiple e-mail become an ineffective tool.

In 2014, ANS introduced a biannual email “blast” to the membership to include announcements, invitations to participate in studies and email surveys of interest to the society, and classifieds. The emails are sent in May and October annually. Please have your requests for inclusion of surveys or membership queries in this group email sent to all ANS members to Kristen Bordignon, the ANS Administrator, by April 19 or September 17 for inclusion in the subsequent email “blast.”

NEXT EMAIL BLAST to all members will be sent the 2nd week of May 2019! Please submit your request for inclusion in the email by April 19, 2019. Please include brief introductory text as it relates to neurotology/otology and an active, tested survey link. The ANS Research Committee Chairperson will preview all surveys for IRB compliance and relevance to the ANS mission. 


Updated ABOto certificates available at a reduced price of $60! 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto), we are pleased to inform you that the neurotology subspecialty certificate has been modified to include a phrase that reflects both adult and pediatric neurotology. This change was made to ensure that the scope of practice of a board certified neurotologist is clear, and that both pediatric and adult patient conditions are within the purview of our Neurotology diplomates. This addition will begin with the new certificates issued in 2018.
NOTE: The ABOto is undergoing a logo redesign. For board certified Neurotologists that want to reorder a certificate with the new language, this will be available as soon as the new logo is finalized. Reorder certificates will still include the original issue date. The price for reorder certificates will be $60. New certificates can be ordered through your ABOHNS login profile under the Services tab. For questions, you can contact the ABOHNS office directly at 713-850-0399.
