Overview of the 2017 Annual Meeting
The 42nd Annual Meeting of IUGA took place on June 20 – 24, 2017 in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. The meeting hosted almost 1000 urogynecologists, gynecologists, urologists, physiotherapists and nurses from 61 countries. It was a great pleasure to meet up with old friends and to make new ones at the recent Vancouver meeting. I want to sincerely thank all those who participated in teaching, on committees, in Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and workshops, and to those attending. I realise this is a big commitment both in terms of time and financially. The energy within the meeting was palpable and we now have many new projects to work on over the next few months. Thanks also go to Geoff Cundiff and the LOC, the programme committee, scientific committee, and all those involved in the organisation.
