IMSA 16th Annual Convention

Labor Day Weekend
August 31st – September 2nd, 2018

Washington, DC 

We promise that this convention will be the one of the best IMSA conventions.  We started by reserving The Gaylord Hotel, one of the finest hotels in the Washington, DC area. It is in an excellent location at the heart of the National Harbor and is only 8 miles from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Room rates are very attractive; $169/night which include $22 resort fee. This fee will cover several amenities including National Harbor bus transportation to a number of locations throughout National Harbor, a $10 daily credit for dry cleaning, unlimited local and domestic long-distance telephone calls, high-speed internet access, daily newspaper, two bottles of Aquafina water per room per day, fitness center and pool access, and a coupon book with a valued savings of over $100.

The convention committee is working very hard to arrange an excellent CME program and an engaging social program.   In the meantime, please renew your IMSA membership for 2018 and we will keep you updated on the convention preparation progress.


President Message:

Dear IMSA members,

I am very privileged and honored to be trusted with the presidency of IMSA for the next two years. I hope to build on the great work done by the presidents that preceded me while recognizing that the future of IMSA rests in the hands of the next generation of Iraqi American healthcare professionals.  We are fortunate to be witnessing the impressive growth of young talents in the various branches of medical sciences.  One of the main objectives of the Board is to engage this young talent and ensure that they contribute to the legacy of IMSA.

One of the highlights of the annual IMSA meeting is the CME program.  The CME program of the next IMSA meeting will witness much wider participation by the young generation.  The CME committee will be composed of young professionals who will work to engage and introduce IMSA to the rapidly expanding Iraq American scientists.  The program promises to be a testimony to the accomplishments of our next generation of scientists.

In addition to promoting scientific exchanges, IMSA bylaws call for the organization to be involved in humanitarian and charitable endeavors.  The Board will seek ideas and suggestions about worthwhile humanitarian projects that IMSA needs to be involved in.  I respectfully ask for your suggestions and participations in these projects as the need for such projects is great in the United States and abroad.

For any organization to thrive and succeed, it must ensure active participation by its members.  I would like to invite you to join me and the Board in the next IMSA convention on Labor Day weekend in the Washington, DC area to enjoy what promises to be an excellent CME program, an engaging social program and the comradery of old and new friends.  We have secured an excellent venue for the meeting with very attractive rates.  I look forward to seeing you and your families and friends in the next convention.

Imad Almanaseer
