Annual Meeting & Conference
The ACHSA Southeast Chapter held our annual conference September 27‐29, 2013 in Jekyll Island, GA. Eighty‐six guests had a fun‐filled weekend with the theme “Wind in Our Sails” at Villas By the Sea.
The conference kicked off on Friday evening with a lively cocktail hour, wonderful dinner and educational program about Hep. C. Bright and early Saturday morning, guests had breakfast before the speakers began. Continuing education topics included: psychotropic medications and mental health, lice and scabies, knee injuries and emergency response and critical decision making.
On Saturday afternoon, the programmed portion of the conference ended for the day so that guests were free to spend time enjoying the various local attractions like beaches, shops, and restaurants. That evening guests also had the option to take a complimentary trip on the local casino boat, The Emerald Princess.
Guests came together for a final meal and speakers on the topic of mental health issues related to Cognitive impairment and Dementia Sunday morning. One of the most exciting times also happened this morning when the drawings for the largest door prizes were drawn; these included a laptop and digital camera!
This year’s conference was 3 days of great fun had by longtime and new members alike. We owe a huge thanks to our vendors and to our event staff, for the delicious meals. Conference planning for next year is already beginning and we are looking forward to another successful year! Hope to see you there!!
