Annual Meeting: Sept. 14-15, 2018


148th CMS Annual Meeting, Sept. 14-15, 2018 at the Vail Marriott.

Make plans to join the Colorado Medical Society for the most anticipated event of the year for Colorado physicians: the 2018 CMS Annual Meeting. Building on the success of previous meetings, a workgroup of physicians and medical students is already hard at work to craft entertaining social events and high-quality professional development sessions to help you refresh and recharge in your medical career. The 2018 meeting will be held Sept. 14-15 at the Vail Marriott in Vail, Colo., and we hope you and your family will make plans to join us in this idyllic mountain retreat. As always, there is no registration fee for members and we have secured discounted group pricing on lodging at the hotel.

New this year, the conference will conclude with Saturday night’s presidential gala, giving attendees and their guests more time to explore beautiful Vail, a top Rocky Mountain destination, on Sunday. In addition to the hiking, biking and viewing of fall colors attendees know they will enjoy, Vail Oktoberfest – with Bavarian beer, music and dancing, traditional fare, yodeling and alpenhorn blowing – will be held in Vail Village Sept. 14-16, and the Vail Farmers’ Market and Art Show will be held Sept. 16. Childcare is provided during conference events with advanced registration.
