A year on... the achievements
Dear Members of UICC,
It has been 12 months since many of us met in Montreal to enjoy the World Cancer Congress, the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit, and the UICC General Assembly where we elected the new Board of Directors to take UICC forward in the next two years.
We want to use this one year mark to provide a short summary of what kept the Board and the UICC Geneva Team busy. It has been a productive year and we are indebted to many members for their support. Your time, commitment and voluntary funds have been very helpful. With the new Board, we have new leadership. Tezer Kutluk is our President-Elect, Greg Bontrager is our Treasurer, Ben Anderson has established great momentum as Chair of the Membership Committee. Heather Bryant is leading our UICC policy review and Co-chairs the Programme Committee for the World Cancer Congress 2014 with Sanchia Aranda. Felicia Knaul has taken responsibility for UICC position statements, and Eduardo Cazap will lead our next Board nomination process. Gilbert Lenoir is working with his French colleagues already thinking of the 2016 WCC in Paris, and the other Board members are fully engaged in Board Committees. We established a new Board Governance Committee which will assume the overall responsibility for the organisation.
Please review our 2012 Annual Report and share it with your organisation, your partners and friends.
