Message from the CCME President:
Besides having a very educational symposium in San Diego, we had a wonderful 40th CCME Anniversary Celebration. I want to thank all the volunteers and board members who helped to make this such a special event. I also want to especially thank Joycelyn Groot for her outstanding leadership as the 2012-13 CCME president.
We are already starting to turn our attention to the 2014 CCME Symposium which will be held February 10-13 in Savannah, Georgia. Thanks to an excellent response to our symposium survey, we have a good idea on what the membership liked (and did not like). We are using this information to help plan the Savannah agenda. Our goal is to have a productive and educational symposium with general and concurrent sessions that will be of interest and value to our membership. This was the first year that we had the banquet on Wednesday night (instead of Thursday). This change was very well received. As a result, the 2014 Banquet will again be held on Wednesday night.
We plan to have another Golf Tournament on Monday. Since this will be a “scramble”, it will be for golfers of ALL experience levels. I hope that we can have a good turnout. Besides helping to support a military charity, it is also an excellent opportunity to have fun and to meet other CCME members.
We are also tentatively planning to have a 5K Run/Walk on Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. This will also provide the attendees with an event to have fun, to meet other CCME members and to support a military charity. We hope to post information on the hotels, registration, the call for concurrent session proposals, and the application process for CCME awards and scholarships very soon. So mark your calendar right now for the 2014 CCME Symposium in Savannah, Georgia February 10-13.
If you have questions going forward, please feel free to e-mail any of the CCME Board Members or me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
