Maine Chapter ACS Annual Conference RESCHEDULED

The Maine Chapter ACS board has decided to postpone the Maine Chapter ACS Annual Conference that was originally scheduled for the end of May 2020


The Maine Chapter ACS board has decided to postpone the Maine Chapter ACS Annual Conference that was originally scheduled for the end of May 2020. It is clear that we are several months from being able to gather safely so we are rescheduling the event to July 31 – August 2, 2020 at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel. 

The program committee has been working with surgeons in other New England states to assemble a first rate program. We hope you will make plans to join us! Visit the MEACS Website for meeting and COVID-19 updates and resources.

Registrations and reservations already made can be transferred to the new date or, if preferred, full refunds will be issued. Contact Cathy Stratton at cstratton@mainemed.com or (207) 592-5725 for more information.
