Dear Members and Friends,

As we march into springtime, I am filled with excitement and optimism for what lies ahead for the American Gynecological Club (AGC).

I invite you to join or renew your membership and commitment to AGC, to be part of AGC’s rich history and help to further our mission to support the advancement of obstetrics, gynecology, and abdominal surgery.  AGC goals and member benefits have remained unchanged during the 114 years the Club has been in existence.

Exploration - AGC provides its members the opportunity to observe at institutions other than their own -- the educational, clinical, and experimental work of fellow members and others engaged in the practice of obstetrics and gynecology.

Demonstration - Members are given an opportunity to demonstrate in their own institutions the results of their best and brightest faculty science, plans of instruction, and novel operative methods and cutting-edge procedures.

Face-to-Face - AGC continues to provide an opportunity for academic leaders in the field of gynecology and obstetrics to come together in-person in a relaxed, social atmosphere to consider advances and problems and shape the direction of women’s healthcare.

Free Interchange - The Club strives to stimulate among its members informal discussion and a free interchange of ideas.

Friendships - AGC meetings and interactions serve to foster and sustain friendships.

We look forward to meeting together this year at Yale University, October 3-6, hosted by Dr. Hugh Taylor.  In addition to our academic sessions, we will enjoy tours of Yale as well as offsite events at the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Union League Lawn Club.  I hope you will join us and take advantage of learning, sharing, networking, and having fun together.

I welcome your involvement, your suggestions and active participation in AGC.  You can reach me directly at Nanette.Santoro@cuanshutz.edu or info@americangynclub.org.
