The pre-RMC site visit is an important time for the planning committee to come together and bring the vision of the 72nd RMC to life. Tommy Wheeler, chair for the 2019 RMC, the AMSA staff, and the co-chairs for the 2019 technical program spent a few days looking at the meeting spaces, reviewing the RMC survey comments, discussing the program suggestions, and ironing out details to make the technical program for the AMSA 72nd RMC one that you will not find on any other conference agenda.

Attendees will be starting out at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel Conference Center Monday morning for the Keynote presentation, AMSA International Lectureship Award presentation, concurrent sessions and ePoster viewing, not to mention great opportunities for networking! Tuesday morning, all attendees travel to the Colorado State University campus for the "Reciprocation Fair" which will be a full day of educational programs.

Then Wednesday, we will head back over to the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel Conference Center for a powerful keynote presentation and a variety of concurrent sessions and workshops.

Over the next few months, make sure to watch for eNews announcements regarding the Keynote speakers, concurrent sessions, and the Wednesday sessions. This is going to be one RMC you will not want to miss out on OR leave early!
