Reflections on Friedrichshafen
We are grateful to Alfred Bonnici for his help with making the arrangements for the meeting. Mental health, psych-social factors and prevention will be the theme of ECAM4, in Bucharest on 5-7th September 2014. ‘MIND THE GAP’. We are aiming to have a new format for this meeting, with a mix of presentations, papers and expert discussion groups, so that we can harness the experience and expertise on these topics. Put the date in you diary now!
At the AsMA meeting in San Diego in May next year we will have an ESAM panel as part of the main meeting, rather than a separate lunchtime session. This will be titled ‘Things that keep us awake in Europe’ and will cover issues of fatigue as well as other controversies. And finally, thank you for voting me as you President-elect to serve a second term until 2016, I am touched by your on-going support. The job would not be possible without the support, help and encouragement of the many people who are involved with the Society, who willingly contribute their time and effort, often despite having a busy ‘day-job’. It brings to mind a saying in English. “If you want a job doing well, ask a busy person.”
