It is my pleasure to welcome you as Chair of IERASG, the International Evoked Response Audiometry Study Group. Our Study Group (also known as Hal’s Club since it was originally established for the exchange of ideas about auditory evoked responses by Professor Hallowell Davis) is for anyone with an interest in evoked response audiometry. Previous IERASG Chairs, Professors Hal Davis, Terry Picton, Roger Thornton, and John Durrant, have had distinguished research careers and have made significant contributions to this field.
I share their passion for research and translation of research findings into evidence-based clinical practice in evoked response audiometry. IERASG is inclusive and international. Our goal is to advance global understanding and practice in the field of auditory evoked responses. We are multi-disciplinary with members who are scientists, clinicians and students. The diversity of the IERASG Council represents our global membership. It is easy to join IERASG – just attend the symposium. IERASG symposia are held mid-year in different parts of the world. The symposia provide opportunities for people with an interest in auditory evoked responses to come together for a free exchange of ideas between senior and newer researchers in a supportive environment. We are greatly looking forward to our next IERASG symposium that will be held on 21-24 May 2017 in Warsaw, Poland. I encourage you to attend what will be a great meeting. The 2017 IERASG Symposium is chaired by Professor Henryk Skarzynski who is supported by Professors Krzysztof Kochanek and Wieslaw Jedrzejczak who chair the Scientific and Organizing Committees, respectively. This will be the 25th International Evoked Response Audiometry Study Group Biennial Symposium and hence we will be celebrating 50 years of IERASG. Since the inception of this field we have made great strides in the application of evoked response audiometry. Important challenges remain however. We continue to seek valid, reliable, and time-efficient objective measures of different aspects of auditory function. I hope to see you in 2017 to discuss the latest developments in our field.

Kind regards,
