Quarterly Membership Meetings
The general membership meetings normally begin at 6:30 and have a meet and greet period followed by a buffet dinner. The business portion of the meeting follows an agenda of old and new business and announcements. An invited guest speaker will speak on socio-economic or medical related subjects of interest to members followed by a period of questions and answers.
Spouses are generally invited to the meeting for nominal fee to cover their meal expense. On occasion medical related exhibitors attend the meetings and provide displays of their products and services. This opportunity allows an interchange among vendor and physicians to discuss medical subjects of mutual interest.
Vendors interested in exhibiting their product/service should contact 318-675-7656 for information,
