Thank you for the honor and privilege of serving as your AAMSE President. It’s daunting, exciting, and humbling all at the same time. The 2014 Annual Conference, chaired expertly by Pam Udall of Texas Medical Association, has come to an end – and what a great educational experience it was.
To those of you who joined us in Louisville, make sure you complete the program evaluations so we can start planning the 2015 conference to meet your needs. To those of you who didn’t attend, you were missed, but you can still benefit as the sessions were recorded and will be available for purchase soon.
In my medical society management career, there has never been a time like the present where the medical profession has faced such considerable opportunities for physicians to step up and lead the change they want to see for the betterment of their own profession, for enhancement of patient care, and for the improvement of population health.
And never before have there been greater opportunities for medical societies to lead this change, to work with physicians to craft their vision of what they want Medicine to become...
In Memoriam: William Applegate
After all of the anticipation, excitement, and planning, it’s hard to believe the 2014 AAMSE Annual Conference is in the books. Inspiring speakers, energizing collaboration, and a lot of fun made this year’s conference in Louisville one to remember.
The conference got out of the starting gate on Thursday with the opening plenary session where attendees learned how the Kentucky Derby has remained one of the premier events in sports from Churchill Downs VP of Racing Communications, John Asher. Breakout sessions throughout the day covered everything from legal issues and advocacy, to social media and building your personal brand. Attendees also had the chance to meet with conference sponsors and exhibitors during lunch and at the Exhibitor Reception. A variety of products and services vital to running medical associations was on display throughout the week. Louisville’s world-class restaurants were in the spotlight during the Dine-arounds, giving attendees the chance to explore the city’s cuisine with old friends and new.
Friday began with a look into the future as Michael Fraser, PhD, CAE and a panel of experts reviewed the AAMSE Trends Report and discussed what medical society professionals should be prepared for as medicine continues to undergo vast changes. Engaging sessions on leadership, membership, and mobile apps followed, leaving participants with plenty of ideas to take back to the office.
The Board Installation and Awards Lunch saw Terri Marchiori close her term as president and pass the gavel to 2014-15 President Susan D’Antoni. Susan installed the 2014-15 Board of Directors as the outgoing Board members were thanked for their service.
Attendees donned big hats and colorful beads for Friday’s Kentucky Derby Happy Hour before heading out for a tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, bourbon tasting, and the Louisville nightlife.
The conference concluded on Saturday with a fun and engaging plenary session from Beth Ziesenis who showed attendees tech tools to make their lives easier. Mary Byers, CAE closed the conference with a powerful presentation on ensuring the future relevance of associations.
Thanks and appreciation goes to Pam Udall and the entire 2014 Annual Conference Program Committee for planning another stellar meeting. Thanks as well to the attendees, speakers, and partners who made the conference a success.
As a reminder, session materials and audio recordings of conference sessions will be available to all registered attendees via CadmiumCD. Keep an eye on your inbox– you will receive an email when the recordings go live!
