Dear NCROCAP Members,
We are continuing to work diligently to design an upcoming Annual Meeting as enjoyable, successful, and engaging as the last one. The Annual Meeting is currently scheduled for Friday through Sunday January 25th – 27th, 2019. We are also happy to announce that the 2019 meeting will again be at the La Playa Hotel in Carmel. Please save those dates on your calendars!
We have filled the vacancies created by the recent resignations with temporary appointments, as per our bylaws. The temporary appointments are as follows: National Delegates – Dr. Isheeta Zalpuri and Dr. Susan Milam Miller, Member At Large – Dr. Janani Venugopalakrishnan, and President Elect, again as per the bylaws, for a one year term, – Dr. John Leikauf. In keeping with my prior email and promise, I have continued to Chair the Program Committee for the Annual Meeting, though I have received tremendous help from our Program Committee CME Chair Dr. Uri Cohen, as well as the other members of our Program Committee, Drs. Ronald Lee and John Leikauf.
The election slate to finalize the temporary appointments with the nominees listed above will be finalized at the end of the week and the ballots sent out shortly thereafter. If you previously signed the form to vote electronically, you will be able to do so. If not, then there are two options:
#1 The simpler option: Immediately fill out the brief consent form (pdf attachment included here). It is mandatory that we receive this form by mail only, to NCROCAP, 432 60th Street, Oakland, CA 94609. We cannot accept electronic submissions of this form. From then on everything will be via email.
#2 The slightly more complicated option: Wait until you receive the paper ballot and paper consent that will be mailed to the address we have on file for you. Fill them both out and snail mail them back.
I welcome any questions, comments or concerns regarding any of the above, or any other issue of relevance to NCROCAP. Please feel free to reach out to me via email or phone.
