USMS to Host Hybrid Annual Meeting in 2023
Attendees can attend the meeting virtually or in person at the Houston Airport Marriott at George Bush Intercontinental (IAH). When they determine how to attend, we encourage LMSCs and delegates to consider attendees’ personal/vacation time and how funds used to attend in person could be used locally in support of USMS member programming and benefits.
By early summer, we’ll announce a tentative schedule, which will include meetings to be held via Zoom in advance of the annual meeting and the agenda for the annual meeting. The 2023 annual meeting webpage will be updated as information becomes final, and we will link to the 2023 annual meeting schedule in Sched. Should you have immediate questions regarding the 2023 annual meeting, please contact Volunteer Services.
