presents its
2014 Annual Meeting
September 10-14, 2014

at the Royal Sonesta, New Orleans, Louisiana

 

The Southern Psychiatric Association (SPA) is pleased to invite your participation in our 2014 Annual Meeting,

The meeting will be held at the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 10-14, 2014.  The scientific programming will begin on Thursday, September 11 and continue until noon on Saturday, September 13, 2014 and will allow for plenty of time for interaction with our participants. We are anticipating an attendance of 80-100 physicians.  A meeting brochure is available. A draft agenda is highlighted below.

SPA’s membership includes about 200 psychiatrists from around the country. Its purpose is to provide quality continuing medical education for physicians in the specialty of psychiatric medicine and to foster the study of the cause, treatment and prevention of mental illness and promote improvements in the standards of medical care and treatment for psychiatric disorders and further research and education in psychiatric medicine.   

Participation in our annual meeting has proven to be a cost effective marketing tool to promote name recognition and product identification.  Some of our past supporters include Pfizer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Astra Zeneca, Odyssey Research, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, LaAmistad Foundation, Eli Lilly, and The Psychiatrists’ Program.  We consider your financial support invaluable in educating our members.  Your support will be listed in the program and also acknowledged at the various functions.

We are pleased to offer exhibitor booths at a cost $1,200.00 per booth. See the Annual Meeting drop down menu for the meeting space contract and further information. Please make checks payable to the Southern Psychiatric Association (Tax ID 23-7425682) and send them to 6501 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD  21204.
