Welcome to the 24th Annual Directory of Medical Associations and Meetings.

This comprehensive listing is designed to help planners avoid scheduling conflicts and to seek possible meeting partners. Biomedical firms can use it to find meetings at which to exhibit.

The directory includes listings of associations holding meetings for the entire gamut of the healthcare professions. Associations are categorized by specialty and by meeting date and site.

What's In The Listings Detailed information about individual associations and their meetings can be found in the Healthcare Category section. Here, readers will find the full name of the association, its headquarters address, telephone and fax numbers, a contact name at the organization, the organization's annual meeting budget, the number of members, the estimated number of attendees at its most recent annual meeting, and whether or not the meeting allows exhibits. The date and location of the 1998 meeting is given along with, where possible, dates and locations for meetings through 2000.

New this year: Registration fees and availability of Category 1 CME credit.

An association not holding an annual meeting in 1998 is indicated by the words "not held" at its meeting date entry. An association that did not respond to our requests for information about its 1998 meeting is indicated by the words "not given" at its meeting date entry.

Disclaimer Medical Meetings makes every effort to publish accurate meeting information, but neither this publication nor any of its employees assumes liability for errors in listings. Before making travel plans, please verify all pertinent information with the sponsoring organization.
