American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

International Host Program at Clinical Congress 2016

Clinical Congress is a special time of year for us at the College, and it’s a special time for all of our members. This meeting provides an opportunity for leaders of the College to extend a warm welcome and helping hand to all of our international members who may be experiencing the College in-person for the first time. You can help make their experience a positive one.

How Can I Get involved?


Meet and greet, perhaps over a quick cup of coffee or lunch.

Give them a positive start. Be a friendly face and someone they can go to with questions about Clinical Congress.

Note: You are not expected to pay for the international attendees’ beverage or meal.


Meet either Sunday or Monday of the Clinical Congress. A room at the Marriott Marquis has been reserved for this program for both days.

How Can I Volunteer?

If interested, please e-mail Meghan Duckworth at by Wednesday, October 5.

Let’s make the 2016 Clinical Congress a great memory for our international guests!
