Dear EVS Members and Colleagues:

I look forward to seeing you at the Joint Annual Meeting of the Eastern Vascular Society (EVS) / New England Society for Vascular Surgery (NESVS) that will be held at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts, September 11-14, 2014. This is a historic event in that it represents the first time ever that the oldest and the largest of the regional vascular societies will meet jointly, and it promises to be a rewarding and stimulating educational and social experience.

The Program Committee, under the leadership of Drs. Brajesh Lal and Eva Rzucidlo, has assembled an excellent program covering a wide range of topics for vascular and endovascular surgery to be presented by a diverse panel of distinguished speakers. The annual meeting has been structured again to allow for accrual of self assessment CME credits.

The Young Surgeonís Committee, co-chaired by Drs. Benjamin Jackson and Darren Schneider, is conducting Mock Oral Examinations for our senior vascular residents, vascular fellows and new members who await the certifying examination. A Cook Fellow Luminaries Session will be held and Drs. Christopher Kwolek and John Blebea will lead a Postgraduate Course, Update on Venous Disease Management: Expanding the Treatment Options.

The Diversity and Women in Vascular Surgery Committee, chaired by Dr. Kwame Amankwah, will host a Diversity Panel which will include presentations by Dr. Tony Sidawy on Generational Differences, Dr. Linda Harris on Impact of Generations on Education and Dr. Elliot Chaikof on How Generationsí Differences May Impact Hiring, Work and Promotion. The Issues Panel will address Surgical Outcomes Analysis in the 21st Century and be moderated by Drs. Jeffrey Indes and James McKinsey. Speakers on the panel will include Drs. Jack Cronenwett, Sean Roddy and Peter Faries.

I am pleased to announce that the Honorary Lecture will be given by Dr. Daniel G. Clair of Cleveland Clinic Foundation who will discuss Responsibility Beyond the OR: Itís Not Just About Operating.

Our Social Programs include a Welcome Reception along with a Womenís Reception on Friday evening. Attendees will enjoy a reception Saturday evening at the legendary Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox and the oldest ballpark in the United States.

I appreciate our industry partners for their continued support of our meeting. Please visit their exhibits during the Annual Meeting and thank them for their generosity.

I look forward to welcoming you all to the Marriott Copley Place in September.

Michael A. Golden, MD
