Feedback for Future Annual Meetings

At the 2014 Annual Meeting, there was a large majority of votes to uncouple the Society of Academic Associations of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine (SAAAPM) Annual Meeting from the AAMC Annual Meeting. This change has allowed SAAAPM continuity by using the same centrally located city (Chicago) and hotel. Your feedback is now being requested to determine future scheduling of the SAAAPM Annual Meetings for 2019 and beyond.
