Annual Conference Wrap Up

Wrap Up, Award Winners, Photos and More

Attendees with Kerri BurchillWe came together last week in Charleston - May 17-19 - for our Annual Conference at the Charleston Marriott. Nearly 200 attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors enjoyed continuing education from some of healthcare's finest thought leaders, participated in essential networking events with peers and old friends, honored outstanding industry achievement with our annual awards, and experienced the sold-out exhibit hall full of Alliance sponsor products and services.

Thank you to everyone who pulled away from their busy practices to join us.

Thank you to all our speakers and exhibitors for sharing your knowledge and expertise and thank you to our sponsors for your continued support of our organization: we couldn’t do it without you. And, lastly, thank you to our volunteers for leading the organization and keeping us moving in the right direction: your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.

Please browse this post to see all that took place last week and to see what's in store for NCMGMA, through the end of 2023 and beyond.
