A message from the former EAP President, Prof. Tom Stiris
After spending seven years in the EAP Executive Committee – two as Vice-President and five as President – it is time to say thank you. It has been a pleasure and a great honour to serve the EAP and to have been trusted by all of you to serve as the EAP President.
It has been a challenge, and without the close collaboration, input, and work from the whole EC board, the task would have been impossible. I believe in a horizontal leadership style and strong participation of all the EC members to reach good results, and I think we have succeeded. During these five years as president, I have been part of a growing and thriving EAP. I will also take this opportunity to thank all EAP delegates and members for their constructive feedback and encouragement. Thanks to this, we have engaged in many new activities and improved existing ones.
I am confident that under the leadership of the new President, Professor Adamos Hadjipanayis, the EAP will continue to thrive, and have a strong impact in Europe in the near future, wherever children´s health and the professional life of paediatricians are concerned.
