Dear NESS Members,

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. I hope you enjoyed time with family and friends over the holidays.

Our last Annual Meeting in Montreal was a great success. Our prolific membership submitted a total of 116 abstracts of which 25 were accepted as podium presentations, 12 Briefs, and 37 as poster presentations. Our members and trainees did an incredible job preparing and presenting their work.

A total of 34 papers from the meeting were submitted to the Journal American College of Surgeons (JACS). To date, fourteen of these manuscripts have been accepted for publication. You will see these manuscripts in NESS issue of JACS which will be published in June. A special thank you to the NESS members who reviewed the manuscripts prior to submission as well as to our members who provided invited critiques to accompany the manuscripts at publication.

We are already looking forward to our annual resident Research Day which will be Tuesday, May 12, 2020 in Waltham, Massachusetts. This is a great opportunity for your trainees to share their research and network with each other and society members. I hope to see many of you and your residents and students there.

On a somber note, please remember to notify the Society if you are aware of the passing of any members so we can be sure to memorialize them in our necrology in the annual program book.

Wishing you all the best in 2020.
