It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us for what promises to be one of the major ORL events...
The Australia and New Zealand Rhinologic Society (ANZRS) was formerly known as the Australasian Rhinologic Society and was formed to promote aspects of Rhinology for Otolaryngologists in Australia and New Zealand. In addition to holding meetings at which those interested in Rhinology can discuss clinical practice and present research papers, the Society is also committed to producing policy and guidance documents to allow ENT specialists, other medical practitioners and patients to be informed as to current best practice within the sub-speciality of rhinology.
An overall interest is taken in the development of the speciality in Australia and New Zealand, with special reference to the needs of registrars in training. The ANZRS provides a liaison with similar organisations internationally, especially thoroughout Asia and the pacific region.
The Australia and New Zealand Rhinologic Society was founded in 2003 with the aim of promoting excellence in Clinical Rhinology in Australia and New Zealand. In 2005, the Society hosted the International Rhinology Society meeting in Sydney and has now also hosted 8 domestic meetings in the Hunter Valley (2003), Mornington Peninsula (2004), the Barossa Valley (2006), Auckland (2008), Sydney (2010), Coolum (2012), Hawaii (2017) and Melbourne (2019). The Society also co-hosted the South Pacific ENT Forum in Fiji (2009) and in Hawaii (2013).
The inaugural President of the Society, who was instrumental in designing its constitution, was Dr Kevin Kane. Subsequent presidents have been Prof PJ Wormald (2006-10), Associate Professor Raymond Sacks (2010-13), Professor A.Simon Carney (2013- 2017) and Richard Douglas (2017 - Present).

It is recognised that sinonasal procedures, both in office and in theatre, are particularly high risk to the surgeon and his or her staff.
The executive of ANZRS have endorsed the recent guidelines proposed by ASOHNS and recommend all members to follow these promptly.
