I’d like to take a moment to thank MAC2015 attendees, annual meeting committee members, exhibitors, and presenters who came together to create an outstanding conference. I hope everyone was able to connect with colleagues, explore Asheville, and find something inspirational to take home.
However, it is with a heavy heart that I pause to recognize the loss of a friend and exhibitor. On Monday, Dan Boutchie from NEJM, unexpectedly passed away in Asheville. His obituary: http://www.gloucestertimes.com/obituaries/daniel-r-boutchie/article_8ff24cf5-1c24-5aa2-bd37-057c7e55e9c8.html A memorial fund was set up to help his wife and daughter during this difficult time: https://www.youcaring.com/jenn-boutchie-454873
To end on a positive note, I’d like to say how happy I am with all the donations we collected for Dress for Success. Thank you so much!
Check out the great images of Sunday’s conference and reception caught by the photographer MAC hired as well as the silly PhotoBooth pictures from the reception. Feel free to add your own or send them to me. http://on.fb.me/1S0Ro5X
Thanks again, it was a pleasure to host fellow colleagues in Asheville. See you all September 2016 in Philly!!
