|Invitation – Montréal November 2009|
It is my pleasure to invite you all to the CFAS 55th Annual Meeting, which is being held in Montreal from November 18 to 21, 2009 at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel.
Montreal, gem of the St. Lawrence, the Paris of North America, “la Ville aux cent clochers” - like all clichés, these phrases both blur and reveal the truth. Founded by French explorers more than 350 years ago, it is among the oldest cities on the continent, its history a rich backdrop to its vibrant multicultural life. The "joie de vivre" is palpable and contagious in this vibrant, culturally diverse and cosmopolitan city of two million inhabitants.
Montreal provides the perfect background for CFAS 2009. On top of its standing as a notable conference location, it has an excellent reputation as a city of science and medicine. We are proud that the city has developed into a leading location to host international and national medical and health care conferences. It is against this backdrop that the Scientific Organizing Committee is actively building a program to showcase the leading science and emerging practices in Fertility Preservation, the theme for this year’s meeting.
Don’t miss the chance to meet and get in contact with your colleagues and friends from all over the country.
In this spirit, I cordially welcome all participants to the city of Montreal for CFAS 2009!
François Bissonnette, MD
