  • A Meeting in Maryland?

    Lisa and I will be attending the NASPE (North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology) 24th Annual Scientific Sessions in Washington, DC, May 14-17. In March, we gathered at a nice restaurant, had dinner(each paying for their own) with a chance to meet some of our members in the Chicago area. We have quite a few members in the DC/MD/PA/VA/WV area. Anyone interested in meeting for an evening? Any suggestions for location? Linda

    Re: A Meeting in Maryland?

    Linda---The best place for a meeting might just be the hotel where the meeting you are attending is being held. It would be central to VA, MD, etc.

    If you want to concentrate on Maryland and DC, someplace near the DC Beltway on the Maryland side might be the easiest. If just on Maryland, a hotel near the Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) will work. Glad to brain-storm with you. I'm an association executive so am familiar with planning meetings (at least for Marylanders) and would love to help. Maybe we should go back-channel. Send me another email and let's work on this.

        No, Lisa, I'm only trying to find the best Maryland Crab Cake for you . Now if we know Sat nite is best time for you, we can plan from there. I know this is talked about in Wayne's thread, but we're only planning one dinner. That will prob be enough Old Bay and salt-loading for you Linda
