Last weekend we held our General Assembly in Malahide, Ireland. 21 of our members were represented.
As per our statutes, the membership appointed 4 new board members (see elsewhere in this issue) and approved the accounts and the budget for next year.
For the first time we were able to combine our organisational business with training for our members. We also consulted the membership about the feasibility of an important study on patient quality of life in prostate cancer care. It is now up to the new Board to analyse the results and make decisions, based on that feedback.
I would like to thank all who have contributed to the success of the General Assembly.
Once more I would like to give special thanks to Ken Mastris, who has served the board for 6 years, 3 of those as Chairman. Ken has given countless hours and days to serve his fellow patients and it will be difficult for me to match his efforts. I know Ken’s heart is still with us and I am sure Europa Uomo will be able to count on him again.
I look forward to working with the new Board and all our members over the next year.
