1/19 Election of the president and deputy chair
Gulati was elected as president and Offersen as the Deputy Chair
An agreement, e-mailed before the meeting, was reviewed and accepted.
3/19 How to make NCOS official
Its unclear how to make NCOS official. If this is done in Norway, having members from outside of Norway is difficult bureaucracy. All members will check what the rules are for making an organization official in their country.
So far Iceland has not been involved, as they are part of the Nordic countries we should make the best effort to get in touch with them and invite a person from the field of cardiology and oncology to be part of the NCOS board.
A website should also be administrated by the NCOS board. Offersen is going to look into this.
4/19 Logo for NCOS
Tuohinen is going to look into this.
5/19 Where should we publish a summary of this Summit
Its suggested that a resume of the summit is sent as a letter to the editor in Acta Oncologica and to Cardio-Oncology. Gulati and Broberg will make the first draft.
6/19 Funding and next meeting
Its decided that the next meeting will be held in collaboration with the Finnish Cardiology Society in Finland.
7/19 Should we involve the industry
There are no objections involving the pharma.
Evyerone will read through the agreement form from ICOS and give their feedback on mail to Gulati.
1/19 Iceland should be invited in the board
A delegate from Iceland is on the participant list. If possible this person shuld be invitited to the board.
