President's Message

January 2018

Dear Wisconsin Surgical Members:

We had another great conference at the American Club last November with a record number of attendees. A highlight of the conference was a Town Hall Meeting with Senator Ron Johnson. It is important for all of us to communicate with our elected officials regarding our areas of interest and concern. The Wisconsin Surgical Society is proud of our education and advocacy efforts. A big thank you goes to the program committee for their hard work and planning. If you were there, then thank you for attending. For those of you that could not make it, please make plans to join us next year on November 2 – 3, 2018 in Kohler.

Just a quick reminder – we are once again a sponsor for Dr. Day on January 30, 2018 at the State Capitol. Please join us as we share our legislative concerns on a local level. As a member of WSS, we will pay for your attendance! Please register online and note your affiliation with WSS. This was a great event last year and we already have a number of members participating this year. Then, plan on joining us at Rare on the Square for a dinner to recap the days events and to plan for next year.

The number of dues paying members in Society has steadily been declining. If you haven’t done so already, please visit the Wisconsin Surgical Society website at http://www.wisurgicalsociety.com where the easy online payment option is available. We will also be conducting a membership campaign to attract new members to the Society. If you have practice partners, or local colleagues that are not yet members, please extend an invitation to them to join. You can also find the application for membership on the website. You can download the dues renewal form and the application form here.

Thank you for your continued support of the Wisconsin Surgical Society. Please feel to email me at david.schultz@thedacare.org with any concerns or new ideas for the Society.

David Schultz, MD, FACS
President, Wisconsin Surgical Society
