Ask the expert – choose your topic

June 17, 2019

One of the best reasons to attend the College’s Annual Meeting is the opportunity to interact with your colleagues and one-on-one with the experts in the field. Our Ask the Expert Roundtables are some of the most sought-after sessions at the meeting. Not only will you get the opportunity to learn from accomplished leaders in important allergy topics, but you get your choice of which topics to focus on.

Three Ask the Experts sessions are offered during the 2019 Annual Meeting. Each session is specifically designed to address issues directly impacting allergy practices today. Choose between three of six available topics in each session and spend 25 minutes with a practice expert. You’ll get a five-minute overview of the topic and then the presenter will answer questions and facilitate discussion with participants for 20 minutes. Each roundtable is limited to 10 attendees to ensure that our experts can focus on your specific questions and concerns.

Plan to attend the Ask the Expert Roundtables! 2018 Annual meeting attendees gave networking sessions like these a 99% approval rate.  Whether you are just getting started or a seasoned veteran, this exciting interactive learning opportunity has something for you. These sessions are offered on a first come, first served basis. Registration for the Annual Meeting opens in early August.
