Dear members,

Following the 2011 Annual Polis Conference, we are happy to offer you this issue of InfoPolis, which gives you the opportunity to follow up the experience of the conference. We hope that those of you who have joined us have enjoyed the event and gathered interesting information and contacts

Following our annual general assembly, we would like to congratulate Perugia, our new president for 2012! We look forward a fruitful and efficient cooperation, in particular for the preparation of the 2012 annual conference in this beautiful Italian city.

We are also delighted to welcome BKK (Budapest), which has been elected as Vice President, as well as Pisa, and Stuttgart which have also been elected to the Management Committee of Polis.

We continuously try to improve our services for you, but we need your help and support for this. We would therefore be very grateful if you would fill in the evaluation form for the conference and return us your comments, to allow us to improve future conferences.

Yours sincerely,

Sylvain Haon
Secretary General
