It is my great honor and privilege to write to you as the new President of the Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR). Having just returned from Beijing after the 16th Asian Oceanian Congress of Radiology (AOCR 2016), I am acutely aware of both the responsibilities and the challenges that await the new AOSR Executive Committee (EC) and the entire membership of the AOSR.
Before I start talking some of these issues though, I would first like to thank the Immediate Past President Dr. Kundur Prabhakar Reddy and the EC members for their dedication and commitment to the AOSR. From Dr. Reddy, I learned that AOSR not only represents Asian-Oceanian Society of Radiology, but also stands for Authentic Organization to Shoulder Responsibilities of Radiology. I fully agree with his view, and know that we really have to reorganize the AOSR to a certain degree so that we may continue to be an organization covering wide-ranging priorities. Through all of this, the level of effort and commitment given by all those involved in the previous AOSR EC is unquestionable. I would like to offer my particular thanks to the Former Presidents, especially Prof. Lilian Leong, Prof. Lenny Tan, Prof. Ken Thomson, Prof. Jian-Ping Dai, and Dr. Byung Ihn Choi, who have always been with us whenever we needed support and advice. My sincere thanks also goes to the outgoing EC members. Additionally, a big thank you to the AOCR 2016 Congress President Prof. Zheng-Yu Jin and the entire AOCR Organizing Committee team and volunteers like Laura and Danna Xue, who created an unforgettable AOCR 2016 that allowed for much inspiration and motivation as well as for old friendships to be reinvigorated and new ones to be formed. There is no doubt that the new EC will be working together very hard to build on the efforts of our predecessors and to take the AOSR to the next level for all members.

As a great team in Asia, we really hope to ensure that we can make significant progress. I am committed to prompting some important strategic initiatives, working with our dedicated staff and leadership. We will hold a strategy retreat at the upcoming ExCo Meeting (probably in Feb. 2017) to brainstorm about the future. I welcome feedback and engagement of all AOSR family members at any time.

In conclusion, I am excited and enthusiastic about working closely with you to lead this amazing society for the next two years. It is my honor to serve as the President of the AOSR, to shoulder the responsibility you have entrusted in me, and to walk to achieve our mutual goals.

Please feel free to contact me or any other member of the EC at any time with your ideas, thoughts, and projects. I look forward to working with you for our Asian Radiology family.

Yours sincerely,
