I hope that all of you have enjoyed a lovely summer and that you can look back on an inspiring and fruitful ESC Congress in Stockholm. Leaving summer behind, autumn is greeting us with its warm and beautiful colours. This also means the start of a new CCNAP-year, holding a few changes and many exciting things to look forward to.
It is my honour to take over the chair from Christi Deaton. I would like to thank her for all the efforts and work she has done for CCNAP. She has been a driving force and a great inspiration to our council, and I am sure she will continue to be so in the future. It is my pleasure to welcome two new board members: Donna Fitzsimons as Vice-Chair and Selina Kikkenborg as our Communications Representative. The full details of the new board can be found here. I look forward to working with this new board on the further development of the council and establishment of the different committees. An important activity this year will be the kick-off of the Science Committee. Under the experienced guidance of Tiny Jaarsma we can only expect this to be a successful journey.
Finally I would like to invite you all to attend the 11th Annual Spring Meeting on Cardiovascular Nursing.
This meeting will be held in the beautiful city of Brussels, the capital city of Belgium and Europe on the 1-2 April 2011. This meeting is organised in collaboration with the Belgian Working Group on Cardiovascular Nursing (BWGCVN) and the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA).
