It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Dr. Nikolaus Veit-Rubin (Austria). He made many contributions to the field of urogynecology, and specifically to IUGA. He was an active member of the Terminology & Standardization Committee and related writing groups, most recently contributing on the Female Bladder Pain writing group. Niko also served on the Local Organizing Committee for the 2018 Annual Meeting in Vienna, Austria. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.
