Dear Members of SLCOG
On behalf of AOFOG, I’d like to congratulate and express my best wishes for the SLCOG Golden Jubilee congress 2017. SLCOG is one of important members of AOFOG and play an active role in our federation. In particular, Dr. Rohana Haththotuwa has been serving as an executive board member for the last 6 years and now accomplishes an important position as a treasurer. I’d like to express my sincere gratitude for his and SLCOG’s contribution and devotion to the AOFOG.
In 2008, I had an opportunity to attend the 41th Annual Meeting of SLCOG which was held in Colombo together with AOFOG council meeting. As a chair of endoscopy committee of AOFOG at that time, I had run the precongress workshop on laparoscopic surgery to give lectures and live surgery demonstration. I remember that I have met many young gynecologists to have an eagerness to learn laparoscopic surgery.
It is very regretful for me that I can’t join at the meaningful golden jubilee meeting of your society because of the conflict with my schedule and health problem as well. It must be another good chance to meet them again and to give a talk which would be helpful and instructive for them. Instead I‘d like to convey my apology and appreciation to all members of SLCOG
I do hope that the SLCOG Golden Jubilee congress 2017 will be successful and the close relationship between AOFOG and SLCOG will strengthen more and last forever. Thank you.
Joo-Hyun Nam, MD, PhD.
President of the AOFOG
