For those who work in an ambulatory surgery center or represent the services that support them, ASCA 2017 is the only place to be May 3-6. Nowhere else will you find a more complete package of networking, education and advocacy opportunities, and never for a more competitive price.
With thousands of attendees and vendors onsite, the annual meeting can seem overwhelming to some, so we sat down with ASCA’s CEO, Bill Prentice, and outlined a few pro tips to help you make the most of this one-of-a-kind affair.
Lobby for the Day
It’s been over 20 years since ASCA hosted its annual conference in the nation’s capital and we encourage attendees to take full advantage of our presence here. This is a great opportunity to visit Capitol Hill, meet with state representatives and senators, and advocate for the legislative solutions designed to benefit our industry. For attendees interested in engaging our government leaders, ASCA will offer education, training and transportation.
Discover the tools and tips you need to operate an ASC efficiently and effectively. ASCA 2017 is hosting a diverse panel of speakers representing tested expertise in the financial, clinical and regulatory aspects of facility management. Dive into this educational opportunity and stay on top of your game in business operations and care delivery.
