Dear all, It is my great pleasure to welcome you at the 11th annual EUGA meeting in Milan. It is my particular privilege as actual EUGA President to co-chair with Michele Meschia this event in the city where I work. Milan is a very dynamic and attractive place, that has been changing dramatically over the last decade. A mixture of history and modernity, art and technology can be found in this city. Milan pretends to be in the forefront in Europe for efficiency and productivity. It is therefore and ideal place to host the EUGA meeting. EUGA is continuing to grow up in terms of members and activities. The last annual meeting in Barcelona, in a very particular moment for that place, has been very successful. This year we expect even more attendants and, most of all, more good quality abstracts submitted. We need a direct involvement of the highest number of members both for the scientific component and for the management of the association. The following years will be a great challenge. We have to be enough attractive to members and sponsors. The only way to do so is maintaining and, possibly increasing, quality. This can be done with the great commitment of EUGA members. I am sure that Milan will represent a significant phase towards a more and more important role of EUGA in the scientific panorama related to female pelvic floor dysfunction.
