ACOMS REVIEW Message from the President The leadership of ACOMS has been exceeding the goals of our mission statement by providing opportunities to obtain surgical excellence through education, as well as promote fellowship amongst our peers. The year started with outstanding programming with the successful, first-of-its- kind head and neck surgery course, Exploring the Boundaries of Head & Neck Surgery, in January.

The 32 nd ACOMS & FACES Annual Winter Meeting took place on the mountains of Colorado in February. Colleagues gathered to share knowledge on a broad range of topics, as well as fellowship on the slopes. This March, our Annual Hands-on Facial Cosmetic Surgery Course allowed a record number of participants under expert tutelage.
