As chair for the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Neuroradiological Society I would like to pause for a moment and briefly reflect on the last two years. Each and every one of us faced unprecedented challenges during the pandemic – in our personal lives, as professionals and in nearly every facet of our normal daily lives. From the society’s standpoint we were faced with obstacles none of us had previously encountered. I would therefore like to formally recognize Amit Saindane, 2020 meeting chair, and Joe Sullivan, 2021 meeting chair, for the dedication, ingenuity and hard work that it took to pull off successful meetings despite these novel challenges. With that in mind, it is my great pleasure to welcome you, again live and in person, to the Annual Meeting of the SENRS, to be held this year at the storied Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV on October 20-22, 2022. The SENRS meeting is one that many of us “regulars” look forward to many months in advance. For those of you that are new or considering attending this year, the annual meeting is a friendly, collegial and educational event held in one of the 12 southeastern states that collectively form the SENRS boundaries. This year’s meeting will offer a total of 14 CME credits on a broad range of interesting and clinically-relevant topics including vascular, head and neck, pediatric, spine and brain neuroradiology. Speakers include both academic and private practice radiologists with a wide range of expertise in neuroradiology. This year’s keynote speaker is Meng Law, MBBS, Director of Radiology at Monarsh University in Melbourne, Australia. Dr. Law is a world renowned neuroradiologist and researcher and the former president of both the American Society of Spine Radiology (ASSR) and American Society of Functional Neuroradiology (ASFNR). Additional highlights include the return of the ever-popular “Stump the Stars”, an annual favorite among attendees. Teams composed of conference attendees will compete for the “Caput Astrum” award and a whole host of bragging rights that come with winning the event. Thursday and Friday evening dinners provide an opportunity to network, catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances. The Greenbrier Resort, “America’s Resort since 1778”, sits on 11,000 acres of land with 710 guest rooms. The resort boasts more than 55 indoor and outdoor activities and sports, including bowling, an adventure ropes course, fishing, sporting clays and others. For golfers the resort offers 4 worldclass golf courses, including the signature Greenbrier course, formerly host to both the Ryder and Solheim Cups. Night life includes a wide collection of dining, from casual to elegant, late night lounges and the famous Greenbrier Casino Club (gentleman – bring your sport coats!). I look forward to seeing you at the Greenbrier in October!
