In order to maintain CME compliance, it is required that your presentation be reviewed for commercial bias BEFORE you present and BEFORE it is released to the attendee. Therefore, IF you are invited faculty (NOT a presenter of an abstract) the Program Committee has established the following guideline - IF your presentation is successfully uploaded by the deadline, midnight, May 13, 2012, you WILL receive complimentary registration to the Plenary Session (for all invited faculty MDs/DOs) or the IH Main Session (for all invited faculty Integrated Health personnel). If you do not, you will need to register and pay for the Plenary or IH Main Session yourself. You will be provided free registration to the course in which you are speaking.
Abstract presenters and authors in the Plenary Session at the 29th Annual Meeting of the ASMBS are required to register for the Plenary Session (and any other session they wish to attend), and are expected to pay the registration fee. Sign up to receive notification when the 2012 Annual Meeting registration opens.
