President's Message

It has been my pleasure to serve as President of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons over the past two years. In 2010, the Council has continued reinvigorating its committees, particularly the Legislative Advocacy Committee, chaired by Dr. Peter Masiakos, the Young Surgeons Committee, chaired by Dr. Anne Larkin, and the Website Committee, chaired by Dr. Terry Buchmiller. I encourage you to contact the chairs if you are interested in participating in these activities or let us know if you have any suggestions for additional committees.

I would particularly like to thank the Chapter members who sponsored a resident, a feature that will also be available for this year’s Annual Meeting. We would also like to share our appreciation to the 12 industry partners who contributed to the 2009 meeting with exhibit tables and sponsorships.
