Patrick R. Connolly Award
Patrick Connolly was the founding president of the Association of Otolaryngology Administrators (AOA). Patrick spent significant years dedicating himself to getting the AOA off the ground as a stand-alone professional association. This award, in honor of Patrick Connolly, was established in 2005 to honor a member who has dedicated significant time and energy in volunteer hours to the AOA to help advance it’s mission, and to recognize the member’s lifelong contributions to AOA. This is one way we thank and honor members who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
