It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the LA-ACC Annual Meeting that will be held October 26-27, Loews Hotel in New Orleans, LA. We hope we can count on your support. The success of past chapter meetings is due to the excellent educational partnership we have had from our supporters with adherence to the ACCME Standards of Commercial Support.

These session breaks offer an opportunity for attendees to network and visit with exhibiting companies. The fee to exhibit is $2,000. There are also opportunities for your company to provide additional Marketing Support and Educational Grants. Recognition of participation will be communicated to attendees in the program book and via signage throughout the meeting as well as the Chapter website.

In supporting this meeting, we are confident you will see the benefits to meeting and reaching out to cardiologists here in Louisiana. The medical schools and their faculty and trainees will be well represented, as will practicing cardiologists in the community. We hope you will consider participating in this program that I am especially excited about.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
