I am delighted to provide a report on the activities of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons 64th Annual Meeting, which was held December 2, 2017 at the Westin Copley Place in Boston, chaired by Dr. Robert Driscoll. The annual meeting had a final attendance of 168 medical professionals, including 93 residents. I would like to thank Chapter members who sponsored a resident, and senior members who contributed to the resident research prize. I would also like to express my sincere appreciation to the 17 industry partners who contributed to the 2017 meeting with sponsorships, exhibits and equipment for use during the Top Gun competition. This meeting would not be possible without your support!

65th Annual Meeting

Register online and please consider to select: Sponsor a Resident and be recognized for your tax-deductible contribution during the 2018 Annual Meeting.

 

Please review the 2018 bylaws amendment proposed by the MCACS Council to change all officer's terms to 1 year to allow more opportunities for Council members to serve in these leadership positions. Currently, the President serves 1 year as President-Elect, 2 years as President and 1 year as Past-President. The Secretary and Treasurer currently each serve 3 years and with the change in bylaws would still be able to serve longer than 1 year if re-elected. This bylaw amendment will be voted on at the Annual Business Meeting. You may Read bylaws amendment.
