2019 Annual Meeting Recap

Stunning Views Accompanied
Our Program

The beauty of the landscape of Ireland was breathtaking and the weather was perfect for the entire weekend (we were told we were very lucky!). Our meeting began on Thursday with our candidate interviews (8 new candidates made the trip to Ireland) and SSOMS board meeting and grand opening reception on the patio of the Europe Hotel.

Thanks to SSOMS Historian Teresa Biggerstaff for her
contribution of these photos.


President Lee Allen and his wife Kim welcomed all of our attendees and guests. This was a great time to connect with old friends and colleagues.
