Dear colleagues and friends,
As the new President of HCAVS Board of Directors I’d like to thank previous board members, all my unopposed colleagues, our sponsors, each and every one of our members and of course our secretary who supported OUR Society from the very beginning of its existence. Collaboration, togetherness and teamwork are the basic components of our success.
Our personal lives are very complicated, our profession is very demanding, we need to spend enough time with our family and friends. That makes our time precious. We need to use time in our favor and this is something we need to focus. Our priority is to adapt technology in order to further promote continuing professional education for our members.
We use our website www.hcavs.gr and social media to inform in advance for all our future activities. Our scientific journal “Hellenic Journal of Companion Animal Medicine” enters a new era with a new Editor and Co-Editor. You will all see that in our next issue and I do invite you to submit papers and highlight your work and our profession.
The current financial environment is very demanding and also restrictive for all of us as persons and also for HCAVS. It’s very important that our members fulfil their financial obligations to OUR Society. To make that easier for all we have added secure online payments options in our website. It’s now easier than ever to become a member, to renew annual membership or to register for a scientific event. We can do that from our personal computer or tablet, whenever we want.
EVERYTHING ABOUT HCAVS IS OUR MEMBERS. We need our members to be active and demanding. We appreciate any suggestions or comments you may have that will make us improve and move forward.
Our aim is to continue the course of our Society that our predecessors started and in order to achieve that we need vigilance and creativity from ALL. HCAVS will keep supporting companion animal veterinarians and this is our main goal for the next 3 years of our service.
We want you ALL to join us in this course,
My very best wishes,
Lt. Col. Stefanos Kladakis, DVM
President of HCAVS Board of Directors
