The creation of the EAPCI resulted in a coalition of forces, consolidating the essential existing assets: a great annual EuroPCR congress, a growing top quality EuroIntervention journal, now listed in MedLine, and two booming website portals.
After 3 years of existence, the newly elected Board will expand the activities, by strengthening the new initiatives, as well as launching a number of exciting new projects.
A more detailed description of the ambitious plans of the new presidential office can be found in a recent article published in EuroIntervention (Presidential Criss-Cross. The transfer of office between EAPCI presidents, EuroIntervention 2009;5:1-3).
On a personal basis, I would like to personally thank all of you who generously donated time to EAPCI. Last but not least, I gladly acknowledge that none of this would have happened without the dedication and expertise of the staff at the Heart House and Europa Organisation.
It is now time for me to warmheartedly wish the upcoming President great success. I trust that his new office will be able to count on the dedication and commitment of all of you, as much as I could during the last three years.
Immediate Past-President EAPCI, 2009-2011
