Dear Colleagues,

I am honored to be the 11th President of the Korean Balance Society. The Korean Balance Society has remarkable developments in the relatively short period of 20 years since the first academic conference was held on June 19, 1999, focusing on members who were interested in dizziness and equilibrium in various fields such as ENT, neurology, and neurophysiology. This development was completed by the 29th Bárány Society Meeting in Seoul was held at Grand InterContinental Seoul, under the supervision of the Korean Balance Society in 2016. It is now acting as an international academic society.

The Society has now established itself as a world-class society that has been widely recognized for its international status in the field of vestibular medicine after the successful Barany Society Meeting. The driving force of the Korean Balance Society for was the passion and dedication of the previous presidents and executives to the development of the society, and the succession of the Korean Balance Society is the only way to reward their achievements. I will continue to carry on that will.

In order for the Korean Balance Society to develop further as a future-oriented academic organization, I believe that the following are very important points and I will do my best during my term.

first. We will endeavor to form a research group to organize large-scale joint research at the academic level. We will operate the research organization at the academic level and do our best to solve the problems that cannot be handled by individual member's own ability through the organized research team. In addition, we will devise various measures to further inspire the research motivation of members who produce excellent research papers both quantitatively and qualitatively.

second. We will endeavor to promote the activities of the society for all citizens. Many people still know that anemia is a major cause of dizziness. We will do our best to systematically examine the level of perception of dizziness, vertigo, and equilibrium disorders among the public, and to give the public the recognition that our society is the main society for diagnosing, treating, and managing the vestibular and balance disorders.

third. We will further strengthen the systematic education on the diagnosis and treatment of vestibular disorders among members of the society, especially clinicians in primary care. In addition, we will continue to promote the development of new medical technologies in the examination of vestibular disorders in order to help members' management.

I think our members are the most important after all. The interest and voluntary participation of our members is an important driver of the society's development. As we have done in the past, we will do our best to grow and develop as a society that communicates, harmonizes, and cooperates with each other.

Lastly, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the dedication and hard work of Han, Gyu Cheol and other executives.

Thank you.

July 1, 2019.
