As the President of the CFAS, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to our 2019 Annual Meeting to be held in Ottawa, out nation's capital. This is the 65th annual meeting of the CFAS and it will be a very special meeting in celebration of this milestone! We have an exciting lineup of speakers from Canada and around the word. The theme of 2019's meeting is "It Takes a Village to Create an Embryo". An entire team of very skilled people in multiple disciplines is essential for us to successfully help those who suffer from infertility or who require assistance from third parties to have children.

Some of the topics to be explored include: optimizing the interdisciplinary fertility team to provide the very best care, integrating research with the fertility team, and improving access for remote communities based on a model used in Africa. There will be fantastic sessions for clinicians and basic scientists on the latest in genetics related to reproductive biology, on fertility preservation, the science of implantation, oogenesis, optimizing the luteal phase, hysteroscopy and treatment of poor responders, and much more.

For the andrology group, they will learn about the use of robotics too select sperm from IVF and the effect of cannabis on human sperm. There will be amazing sessions on reproductive law, counselling, nursing and ethics. There will also be a futuristic talk on how the "village" may look in the future. We will even have a fascinating talk on IVF for endangered species! I am so excited about the quality of the speakers that have agreed to come and the incredible learning experience that all of the attendees will have.
