  • Annual Meeting -Agenda Suggestion

    First I must say that I am not part of the HCMA board or speaking for Lisa.
    I am making a proposal for consideration by Lisa and would like the membership input.

    For all of you who are planning to attend the Annual HCMA meeting or who are considering, I ask for feedback on a potential breakout topic. Who would be interested in a breakout session for organizing a national effort to do any or all of the following

    1. upgrade preparticipation physical exams and forms
    2. push for more AED out at the sports field
    3. free heart screenings

    Please - If you are not planning on attending but would if the above was going to be part of the agenda, mention that.

    Re: Annual Meeting -Agenda Suggestion

    Time and room are extremely limited this year. As we have had to move the meeting from the Westin (as it is closed for renovations) to the Headquarters Plaza we had to make adjustments to the program, such as break out rooms. With the added feature of medical education this takes up the other large room available in the hotel.
    We will however have table space for organizations and companies set up so that people can stop by and see what they are interested in and gather information on such topics.

    Knowledge is power ... Stay informed!
