Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

The essence and success of the meeting is, as always, highly dependent on the quality of the original work presented at the meeting by its members and guests. The SCVSS invites you to submit your abstracts for consideration for presentation at the 2019 Annual Meeting. Please visit our website for access to 2019 SCVSS Abstract Submission Site. Deadline for submissions is February 2.

As many of you are aware, Terri Comegys has handed the reins of directorship to Heather Roderick from Surgical Conference Solutions. We will miss Terri and her wonderful personality! You may have met Heather and her team through their work with Western Vascular Society, and we are confident they will be an effective steward to our mission. Thank you in advance for your contributions to our regional society this year!
