Warmest Holiday Greetings!
I hope you’re enjoying the season and that all your holiday plans are coming together.
With winter nearly here, it may be hard to think ahead to the summer, but it’s not too early to start making plans for the Annual CCSA Seminar and Vendor show, to be held August 3-4, 2013. CCSA is known for having world-class speakers with the hottest topics, and this year will be no exception! Keep checking here for updates.
And now for the big news: I am pleased to announce that, after careful consideration, it was decided to return to wonderful Las Vegas!
But wait; didn’t we say Anaheim? Please allow me to explain.
At the 2012 Annual seminar, you, the members, voted on the next location for 2013. Anaheim won, and we set about making arrangements for Hotel and meeting rooms. We were very surprised at what we found! Even after much negotiation and checking several venues, we were unable to find anything within the price range we, or most of you, the members, would be able to accept.
We understand that many hospitals are no longer compensating for seminar attendance. Those that do often pay for registration only, which leaves YOU responsible for travel and accommodations. We also know how important it is to you to advance your professional development (not to mention the Continuing Education Credits!) With economic times being what they are; most of us aren’t willing (or even able) to spend our hard earned money so freely.
Therefore, to make the Annual Seminar affordable, we have chosen the best value with the most attractions. We hope you will agree that “Fabulous Las Vegas” is an excellent city to host CCSA once again and we look forward to seeing you there!
Best wishes for the Holidays,
Tim Parsons, CRCST
