echoing Dr. Bui, great programs are planned. Best speakers including Dr. Epstein, Montgomery, Appelman, Brogi, and others on timely and practical topics. Welcome to join us.

I am working to kickstart MO Path Society (MSP) and would appreciate if other pathology society leaders could share links of future meetings that are open to pathologists from MO to attend. I will then forward the link/details to MSP members, and also have posted on our social media pages. My email is cgupta@mawdpathology.com. Thank you!
Jim Zhai
52:45
Just sent you some info we have for the upcoming FSP Annual Meeting
Marilyn Bui
54:57
Excellent presentation. Congratulations on your success, Georgia.
Rebecca Osgood
55:27
I had a frozen and thus was late unfortunately to the meeting. Would it be possible to send us the slide deck? Thank you so much and congratulations Georgia!
Richard Eisen

We were able to have our annual meeting virtual meeting last fall with a fairly successful meeting and some industry support. However, we have lost momentum with few members remaining active. What suggestions do you have to reverse the trend of reduced or no engagement.
Prasad
56:46
Excellent presentation Dr Harik!
Prasad

Thank You! AZ SP is taking notes!
Jim Zhai

Dr. Harik, thanks for sharing your success and wisdom! Excellent work! Jim

I feel the overall success with transition to virtual, temporary or permanent, is better than expected. feedback here is good. University of Miami just had a successful course. Florida Society of Pathologists is doing a great job with the upcoming meeting.

It seems like digital State meetings could likely state to blend into National given the ease of access.
Lara Harik
01:02:11
Great question Dr Eisen: We launched our virtual events in response to exactly that. We were afraid to lose the personal connections we worked hard at building. The Grand round style presentations, Newsletter (GAPNews), as well as educational courses, helped keep our members engaged and connected.
Alfred Lui
01:03:39
Oops, sent this previously but only to Rick Gomez. Hello, Everyone Al Lui, Member California Society of Pathologists, member of Education Committee
Richard Eisen
01:04:10
we have connected with the regional Astra Zeneca representative in charge of education for our region.
Bob Achermann
01:05:08
the challenge will be in the future when in person meetings will be able to be held. Doing a combination of in-person and virtual raises issues of costs, expected in person attendance, hotel expectations of room block and food and beverage spending. Many members want to meet in person but the content is valuable on a virtual basis as well.
Richard Eisen
01:06:01
Thanks Lara
Lara Harik
01:06:04
Great question: our GAP virtual Grand Round style presentations were free, as well as our half day educational course. (part of the membership perks)
Lara Harik
01:09:17
I agree Dr Achermann: We plan on having both In person, Virtual and hybrid events. We are all leaning towards an in person only meeting once the pandemic is behind us. The personal connections we build in those meetings are priceless.
Lara Harik
01:09:36
* in person only annual meeting
Richard R Gomez, MD
01:10:06
Excellent points @Bob Acherman. Plus are there maximum attendance numbers imposed by state or local jurisdictions?
Bob Achermann
01:11:29
and the bigger problem of trying to predict what the future will be in 6 to 9 months- we remain optimistic but nothing is certain.
Lara Harik
01:13:24
I agree with both Dr Achermann and Dr Gomez: The next annual meeting will be difficult to plan. It will depend on the comfort level of your members and the organizers. As well as the contracts with the hosting venue. We are hoping that in-person meetings will resume once the pandemic is under control...
Lara Harik
01:15:41
Thank you all: great questions! I may have answered some questions directly/privately. Please reach out if you are interested in a question that has been posted and not answered on the common chat.
Megan Wick
01:19:57
My advice is to be cautious about hybrid. It can be very costly when you involve hotel A/V.
Sean Kirby
01:20:48
We started a newsletter during the time of virtual meetings, as a way to reinforce our state presence and activities, since virtual meetings have lost much of their local personality. Agree that membership wants virtual to continue indefinitely, but have concerns that it will make the in-person meeting impractically small.
Richard Eisen
01:21:20
A follow up call with Dr. Harik and the NJ Society leaders to drill down on their experience will be helpful.
cgupta
01:23:43
This was a very helpful meeting. Kudos to Megan & CAP for organizing it, and to all the speakers for their insights
David Gang
01:26:48
Excellent meeting with lots of valuable information. Very worthwhile.
Lara Harik
01:26:49
I agree Megan: we plan to provide a hybrid option only to our free events. Currently we believe the annual meetings should be either in person or virtual, unless you can afford it
Jeff Craver
01:27:00
Great idea for a meeting and excellent presentations. We will benefit from the information as we plan meetings for the Missouri Society of Pathologists.
Lara Harik
01:27:24
