Meeting Overview

Dear supporters of The Missouri Perfusion Society,

The Missouri Perfusion Society's 22nd annual Scientific meeting held June 2-3 in Springfield, MO was a HUGE success!

Our speakers provided outstanding content and the vendors provided excellent exhibits.  Mercy Hospital provided an amazing venue including meeting space and food.  Many new relationships were formed thanks to the networking environment between attendees, vendors and board members.

Again, I would like to personally thank you for your continued support.  As a society, we heavily credit the success in providing cost effective education and networking to our members directly by membership dues, meeting registration and our vendor's support.

Our annual meetings are always held the first Friday and Saturday of June and rotate between Kansas City, MO (2018), St. Louis (2019) and Springfield, MO (2020).  Please consider joining us next year for our 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting in Kansas City, MO June 1-2, 2018.  We always award at least 15 category 1 ABCP CEUs to registered Perfusionists, which allows you to receive all ABCP required category 1 CEUs for your three year re-certification cycle.  Meeting registration fee is waived for serving as a meeting presenter/speaker.  Annual membership dues are for January 1st through December 31st of the year in which they are paid.  Meeting registration is reduced for members and is also lower up until two weeks prior to the meeting.

You can now login to your online account and access your CEU certificates.  Please do this now, however they will always be saved under your account in the dashboard.  This is the only way to receive your certificate.  Additionally, our website now has the meeting presentations from our presenters available for your viewing.

Please HELP!! It is our goal to have contact with as many local Perfusionists as possible and please update your account if your email has changed. I strongly encourage anyone that would like to be placed on The Missouri Perfusion Society’s email list to sign up through the website. A copy of all society communication is available there as well.

Any suggestions in regards to meeting feedback, future meeting input or any ideas...please contact me!  I look forward to working with you as the President of the Missouri Perfusion Society.
