Dear NWUS members:                                                

Please take a moment to mark your calendars for this year’s Northwest Urological Society meeting on December 6 and 7, 2013. This will be the 60th anniversary of our society! The meeting will take place at The Hotel Vancouver Fairmont in downtown Vancouver. We encourage you to book your room with the Northwest Urological Society room block and experience for yourself the best of hotel services. The proximity of the Fairmont to abundant Holiday shopping and the new Canada Line metro will provide endless daytime opportunities for family members accompanying the attendees. Our Saturday Night Reception is taking shape under the guidance of Dr’s Ben Chew and Jay Lee. The venue will be just steps across the street within the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Our invited Keynote speaker this year will be Dr Ron Kodama. Dr Kodama is Professor and Head of the Division of Urology at Sunnybrook Hospital, University of Toronto. He is a long standing educator and currently chair of the Urology Exam Committee of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Dr Kodama will be speaking on a wide range of topics including postgraduate urological education, urethral reconstruction and GU trauma.

In addition, our scientific co-chairs, Dr Keith Rourke and Dr Chris Nguan are in the process of planning a Friday morning educational symposium.

I ask each of you to reserve the date, make certain that your Northwest Urological Society dues are paid and up to date. I also ask you to encourage your partners and fellow urologists to join the society. Please give them the application, which accompanies this letter.

See you all in Vancouver British Columbia December 6th and 7th!

Andrew E MacNeily
2013 President, Northwest Urological Society
