Town Hall Meetings

The Town Halls were created to provide informal discussion about issues relevant to the Fellows of the American College of Surgeons, as well as to address specific topics and concerns of the Committees of the Advisory Councils of the ACS that host the Town Hall. In keeping with the intended purpose of the Town Halls, no A/V will be provided in the Town Hall rooms, nor formal presentations will be made. CME credit is not given for attendance at Town Hall Meetings.
