Dear Members,

As President of the DEÄV/AGMS, I am very pleased to present the new website. The intention is to give people an insight into what the AGMS stands for, its aims, and our plans for the future. The website will also give you previews of our meetings/conferences in Düsseldorf in 2017, Devon in 2018, and Hamburg or Munich in 2019.

I am also happy to report an upswing in the number of new members. For my part, Brexit is of secondary importance because we are a society for the exchange of medical news and views. We neither have nor want any political function. Nevertheless, we shall be discussing the impending Brexit situation and how it may affect the Association at our next conference in Düsseldorf from 6th – 9th September, 2017, which I am looking forward to tremendously.

I would be very pleased to see you in Düsseldorf.

Kindest regards,

Dr M. K. Bohndorf
President of the DEÄV/AGMS
