Vivian Gahtan, MD

Dear Member of the Eastern Vascular Society,

I am looking forward to 2012 and want to take this opportunity to update you on some Society activities.

I am delighted to let you know that we have hired PRRI (Professional Relations and Research Institute) to provide management services for EVS beginning on January 1, 2012. PRRI is an international leader in the management of medical specialty societies and foundations with over 60 years of experience. PRRI, which is accredited by the AMC Institute and based in Beverly, Massachusetts, will be handling all aspects of our Society’s activities, including administration, membership, meeting planning, fund raising and industry support. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with them.

I would also like to thank Terri Comegys with Boston Based for her dedication and management of our society and her assistance in creating a smooth transition.

EVS celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011 and is entering the new year with a variety of initiatives which includes a membership drive. Encourage your colleagues to join us by becoming members of the EVS.

The 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA from September 13-15, 2012. Dr. Rabih Chaer, Chair of the Program Committee, is planning a full program which will include a Postgraduate Course on Varicose Vein Disease and a Vascular Lab Course. Watch for details of the meeting, including abstract submissions, on the Society's website.

On behalf of the EVS Executive Council I wish you a peaceful, safe and Happy New Year.

Vivian Gahtan, MD
EVS President
