IAOO has made great strides under the Presidencies of Jatin Shah, Jean-Louis Lefebvre and Crispian Scully CBE. The success of IAOO is demonstrable particularly in the collaborations which have grown, especially from interactions at the Congresses. We hope to build upon their good work, and make the next Congress, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 2015 an even greater success from all aspects. IAOO has now joined IFHNOS (International Federation of Head and Neck Oncological Societies), and we have expanded the IAOO Council and are involving Councillors increasingly in decisions, which we trust will be even more transparent.We welcome any criticisms and helpful suggestions from the membership or others, about the Congresses, or other matters.
