As the year 2019 draws to a close, Association of Southern Urologists can look back with pride. It was an eventful year where multiple scientific meeting of high quality were conducted in our zone. I was fortunate enough to attend the Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh state chapter meetings. Both had very high quality scientific content and were well organized. I missed the opportunities to attend the Kerala and Tamil Nadu meetings due to my other commitments.
Prof. H.S. Bhat Midterm Workshop on Uro-trauma was a great success and was superbly organized by the Kasturba Medical College team at Manipal. I congratulate all the organizers of various state chapters and Dr. Chawla for the H.S. Bhat meeting.
As you are well aware the next annual meeting of Association of Southern Urologists is at Hyderabad from 11th to 13th July 2020. The South Zone Council and Organizing Committee is making every attempt to make it a memorable event. We all recognize that the young residents and urologists are the future of our society and keeping this in mind, we are planning two sessions which will be completely organized by the residents and young recently qualified urologists. This would provide a platform to showcase young talent of south zone.
One of the concerns of the council has been very poor attendance of the members in the annual general body meeting. It is important that the members must attend the annual general body meeting and take interest in the conduct of the association activities. I would like to invite suggestions from the honourable members regarding how to improve the participation of members in the AGM. Please communicate your valuable suggestions to the Honorary Secretary Dr. Chawla.
I would request the interested postgraduates and young urologists to write to Dr. Chawla. Similarly if any member has any suggestions, please feel free to write to us.

I am sure all of you are getting ready for the forthcoming USICON meeting at Kochi and I look forward to see you all there.

Let me wish you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2020.

With regards,
Dr. Nitin Kekre
President, ASU
