It is with huge gratitude that I write my first President’s message following in the footsteps of esteemed past presidents, most recently Edita Noruišienė. On behalf of the Executive Committee, I wish to thank Edita for her tireless commitment to developing the EDTNA/ERCA and her friendship and support over many years.

I am absolutely delighted to welcome you to join us in Rotterdam next year where our 50th EDTNA/ERCA International Conference will take place face to face on September 10–13, 2022. Due to the pandemic the last two years saw us prepare and offer online versions of our conference. Although very successful this just wasn’t the same as being able to meet up in person with the huge family of members that is EDTNA/ERCA. The theme of our Conference is "50 years of Commitment in Kidney Care". Our Conference will take place at the De Doelen, Rotterdam. De Doelen is a highly-acclaimed concert hall and state-of-the-art congress centre. Located in the Mauritskwartier district of Rotterdam, the centre welcomes you as attendees to the 50th conference. It was originally built in 1934 but then destroyed in 1940 during the German bombardment of Rotterdam at the outset of World War II. This beautiful building It was rebuilt in 1966, originally with one hall to which two more were added in the 1990s.

Rotterdam is located in the southern Netherlands. It is the second largest city in the country after the capital Amsterdam. Since the 1300’s the port of Rotterdam has developed and served as a major port of the Dutch East India Company. During World War II Rotterdam saw extensive bombing and its centre was almost completely destroyed, however the city has been rebuilt and once again stands as a modern port. Rotterdam features some fantastic architecture including the modern cube buildings and the Euromast Tower. It also has a wonderful variety of museums, eateries and activities for you all to enjoy.

We so look forward to you joining us in Rotterdam where you can participate in an excellent EDTNA/ERCA Scientific Programme which will include a number of educational sessions and workshops. At conference you will meet our Industry Partners at the Exhibition. You will also have a delightful time sharing experiences with colleagues including patients and carers, and old friends, some of whom have been members of EDTNA/ERCA for many years. In addition, there will be opportunities for networking and making new acquaintances. EDTNA/ERCA Conference will be organize according to the sustainable principles and standards that the Association is following since years.
