In this issue, we share the latest news from our association. The 44th conference in Birmingham has just finished, and Slavka prepared an overview of all the new features that were offered. As the renewed Freelance Business Group was presented in Birmingham, we asked Satyen to briefly introduce the changes and improvements to both Freelance Business Group and Forum. Diarmuid organized a conference map that allows EMWA members to keep track of past and upcoming conference sites. Moreover, last March, Abe and Carola attended the 3rd MedComms Meeting in Berlin. Here, they share their experiences. Finally, one year after the CORE Reference was launched, Sam surveyed its practical utility and shares the results in this section. In other news, some EC positions were renewed this year, and we welcome Tiziana von Bruchhausen as the new Vice-President, Maria João Almeida as PR Officer, and Beatrix Doerr as Honorary Secretary; James Visanji, was re-elected as Treasurer. To those leaving their positions, thank you for your outstanding work during the past year.
