TNACS 2020 Annual Meeting – Cancelled
Dear TNACS Members and Industry Partners,
It is with a sober heart and concern for our safety, as well as the concern of the financial impact of a poorly attended meeting, that we have decided to cancel the annual meeting of The TN State Chapter of the ACS. The cancellation will also include the accompanying Trauma Symposium.
While the travel bans may be lifted soon, too many unknowns remain about the spread of the virus, and the financial impact on each of our lives has yet to be realized. Travel this summer could place unneeded financial strain on individuals who have not been able to perform elective surgery. The hotel has been very gracious regarding the situation and will allow us to reschedule for next year without any penalty by cancelling now.
Since the Chapter won’t meet in 2020, we won’t have elections and the current officers will just roll over to next year.
Let’s regroup, have a great and safe summer, and plan on having a better-than-ever meeting next year! Mark your calendars for August 5-8, 2021!
Robert Maxwell, MD, FACS
