ESPGHAN What’s New – August 2023
Dear ESPGHAN Members, friends and colleagues,
With the summer period now winding down, we will enter a busy societal period of meetings and events, with the recent Gastroenterology Committee Strategy Day marking the beginning of our Autumn Meeting period, and highlighting the excellent work of the Committees and working/special interest groups within our society.
We would like to remind all members also to contribute to the consultation survey on the concept of paid roles and the Liaison Officer position within the society. The survey and information can be accessed here. The deadline has been finally extended to 30.09.2023.
Finally, in order to give members an easy and informal opportunity to discuss societal issues with the President and General Secretary, we are holding the next online meeting on the 04.10.2023, 16:00-17:00 CEST. Please contact the ESPGHAN Office to register for the call, and a link will be sent in good time before the meeting.
