Dear Members of the EHS, dear Colleagues,

Firstly, thank you to the Past President, Werner Siebert, for his excellent Congress in Munich in September 2016.

During my Presidency, I will continue the focus of our Society to enlarge our influence on hip joint care around Europe. Also, as a Society ,we have to find methods to also bind our younger colleagues from the so called e-generation with an interest in hip surgery to our Society.

In the Netherlands, I am active in several committees and have been President of the Scientific Committee of the Dutch Orthopedic Association, member of several steering groups of that society around the hip joint, and contributed to the National Dutch guide line on total hip prosthesis. I am also the President of the Scientific Committee of the Dutch Arthroplasty Registry.

I have experience in organizing large congress meetings and was involved in the organization of the EORS 2004 in Amsterdam and the ISTA in Bruges Belgium in 2011, together with my colleague and EHS member Nico Verdonschot.

It will be a great honour to organize the meeting in 2018 in the Hague. It has excellent connections from its airport Schiphol all over Europe, and the distance from the airport is limited. There is a very regular railway connect¡on, bringing you to the centre in less than 15 minutes. Housing will be no problem.

A cordial greeting from the Netherlands!

Yours sincerely, Wim Schreurs
