Continuity Council Activities in 2019
By Carlo Salvato
Dear ENT Members,
As a current member of ENT Continuity Council, and former Chair of the Division, I have the honor of working with three other Past Chairs to accomplish the main goal of the committee, which is to advise, assist and enhance the performance of the Division by supporting current leadership.
In 2019, members of the Continuity Council offered individual leadership counsel to the Division’s officers, in particular by orienting new leaders who first joined officer positions and by helping current leaders retrieve past decisions and their rationale when issues are discussed at executive meetings. The Continuity Council assumes special projects as assigned by the Division Chair. In 2019, in particular, the Continuity Council was assigned the task to suggest improvements to how ENT main donors can be kept actively committed and involved in supporting division activities and, in particular, awards. Finally, in 2019 I have been appointed by the President of the AOM, Jacqueline A-M. Coyle-Shapiro, as a member of the Division and Interest Group Strategy Committee (DISC). The DISC serves as a bridge between the Board of Governors and the Divisions and Interest Groups (DIGS) for the purpose of aligning strategies to address organizational and DIG challenges and opportunities, enhancing capacity to provide new and indispensable service to members, and building the Board/DIG relationship in service to the collective Academy.
