The American Society of Medical Association Counsel is pleased to invite all ASMAC members to Bar Harbor, Maine and the beautiful Acadia National Park for the 45th Annual ASMAC Fall Conference. The Fall Conference provides approximately 10 continuing legal education credits (Illinois MCLE Board). Each day begins with a full breakfast, 3 to 4 continuing education sessions, roundtable discussions and afternoon group activities in the afternoon. The conference is noted for being casual with ample time and opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas and take a deeper dive into information presented in formal sessions. Most presenters have allowed extra time to participate in social activities, so we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.
