As CFAS President, it is my privilege and honour to invite you to the 2012 Annual Meeting, held in Ottawa, our nation’s capital. The theme for this year’s meeting is From Healthy Gametes to Healthy Babies.

The Annual Meeting is a chance to explore the latest developments in the field of fertility and andrology, as well as an opportunity to network with colleagues from across the country. Collectively, the CFAS membership is at the forefront of research and innovation. I invite you to participate in a scientific programme, presented by expert faculty, where you can discover the most up-to-date advances in the field.

As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and collaborate with other CFAS members. The President’s Dinner and Awards Gala is a chance to celebrate the Society’s accomplishments and fête those members you have deemed worthy of recognition. All CFAS members are also encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting, where you can help set the direction for the future of CFAS.

Ottawa offers the perfect backdrop for networking. Not only is it the seat of Canada’s government, it is ranked one of the top 20 cities in the world for quality of life. Ottawa offers a plethora of museums, galleries, and cultural attractions. Don’t miss a walk along the Rideau Canal, Ontario’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Byward Market where you’ll find cafés, specialty food shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and pubs.
Once more, I welcome you to Ottawa and look forward to seeing you there!

Warm regards,

Marie-Claude Léveillé, PhD

CFAS President
