SESAUA LEADERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENTS
Dear SESAUA Members:
We are very pleased to announce important election results announced at our last Annual Business Meeting held Sunday, March 17 in Williamsburg, VA.
Congratulations to Dr. William Gee who was elected by the membership of the SESAUA to serve as the 2014 AUA President-Elect. This is a distinct and well deserved honor. We wish Dr. Gee continued success as he moves toward this higher office. Thank you to all who participated in the last election. We had a record participation from our membership.
In addition, we offer congratulations to Dr. Raymond Leveillee who became the president of the SESAUA for the 2013-2014 Term, and Dr. Jack Amie who was elected to the position of the SESAUA 2013-2014 President-Elect.
SESAUA is Proud to be the First AUA Section to Support Two AUA Foundation Research Scholars!
AUA Foundation for 2013 Research Scholars Program
The application cycle for the 2013 AUA Foundation Research Scholars Program is now closed. One-year and two-year scholarships are available to MD and PhD candidates conducting urologic research under the mentorship of a senior researcher or physician-scientist. Candidates must be within five years of having completed residency or doctorate training. The sponsors for the 2013 awards include the AUA New England Section, the AUA Mid-Atlantic Section, the AUA Southeastern Section (two awards), the Department of Defense Center for Prostate Disease Research, the Allergan Foundation (two awards), Amgen, Inc., the Kidney Cancer Association, the Robert J. Krane, MD Research Fund, and the Joseph Segura Scholarship Fund in Endourology and Stone Management. The Segura Award is the only research scholar award available to researchers outside of the boundaries of the AUA sections. While research projects related to any area of urology research will be accepted, support is being provided for designated awards in the areas of kidney cancer/renal cell carcinoma, male incontinence, erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, neurotoxins/neurourology, urolithiasis, endourology, stone disease and genetic alterations associated with prostate cancer.

Modeled after the annual North Central Section Residents Quiz Bowl, the AUA rolled out its own version of a National Residents Bowl at the AUA Annual Meeting in Atlanta in May 2012. Each of the 8 AUA sections assembled a team of residents to compete in a single elimination tournament.
