On the basis of the International Continence Society missions, my aim is to maintain and increase the role of our society as leader in Pelvic Floor Medicine. I am member since 2004 and my professional life has centered on Functional Urology. I firmly believe that we need to strive to improve the quality of life for people affected by urinary, bowel and pelvic floor disorders by advancing pure, applied and clinical science through education and research. As trustee I will try to partecipate actively in decision making on the future strategy for increase the membership of the society, offering opportunity in unmeet sectors, including different professional figures and increasing the interests of young careers through the research of new form of training courses, innovative learning methods also with the involvement of industry. A look dedicated to developing countries is important and brainstorming is necessary to look for new insights in the different fields of pelvic floor medicine also increasing the participation of the patient’s associations. I hope to be able to contribute thanks to my experience not only in the clinical field but also in my active participation in many national and international urological societies dedicated to the functional urology.
