General Council Webinar

Friday, 02 July 2021

Dear UIP General Council Members,

As you will be aware, the UIP has had to reschedule the 2021 Istanbul World Congress until 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Since the last UIP General Council Meeting was held in 2019, the Executive Committee would like to take the opportunity to update its member societies on its activities since the last meeting. The meeting will be held as an online webinar.

This will be an informal event compared to regular General Council meetings as it is intended to provide an update to its member societies. During the webinar, the UIP will present the 2020 UIP Annual report, summarising its activities since the last General Council Meeting. There will be no voting during these webinars, but we will also take the time to demonstrate to the council a potential new voting system that may be adopted by the UIP for future General Council meetings. 

As our member societies exist in many timezones, the UIP will conduct 2 webinars on different dates and at different times so that you can pick a time and date that is convenient for you.

The dates for the meeting are:

UIP General Council Webinar 1
Convenient timing for North and South America 
30th July, 2021
21:00 GMT (UTC)

UIP General Council Webinar 2
Convenient timing for Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa
4th September, 2021
07:00 GMT (UTC)

Registrations for the meeting will be sent to you by MCI, the UIP's core professional congress organiser in the next few weeks.

In order to have your invitation sent to you, please take the time now to ensure your contact details have been updated in the new UIP website ( If you have not received your society's login details for the website, please let the UIP know by email ( 

Finally, as was resolved in the last UIP General Council metting, the UIP is still intending to hold a General Council meeting during the Flebologia, Linfologia y Estetica meeting in Buenos Aires in September 2021. Details of this meeting will be sent in due course. 

Best wishes,

David Connor
