If you have not done so already, please make sure and pre-register for the 2016 DLS/TACSM Annual Meeting on March 2nd – 4th, 2016 in College Station on the campus of Texas A&M University. This year, TACSM is partnering with Texas A&M’s Distinguished Lecture Series to offer an amazing program of top notch speakers from around the globe. Some of this year’s distinguished speakers include: Dr. Larry Armstrong (ACSM President), Dr. Scott Trappe (Ball State University), Dr. Erik Richter (Copenhagen Muscle Research Institute), Dr. Jason Zaremski (University of Florida), Dr. Lori Greenwood (Texas A&M University), Dr. Elena Volpi (Raven Lecturer, UTMB), and Dr. Rick Kreider (Texas A&M University). Your registration for TACSM will get you into both events this year. Please check out the DLS website or TACSM Guidebook App for more details.
The deadline for pre-registration is February 19th, 2016. Please pre-register by that date as onsite registration costs 50% more this year across all categories. As an added plus only those individuals that pre-register will receive a ticket to attend the 2016 TACSM Annual Meeting social (to be held immediately following the poster session on March 3rd). We would like to recognize our top annual meeting sponsor Caduceus International who is sponsoring this year’s social. Dr. Tim Lightfoot (Texas A&M) will give a unique presentation about the interaction between music and physiology. There will be great Texas Bar-B-Q along with your choice of drinks. Also, make sure and get your picture taken on the TACSM red carpet. This will be a great opportunity to network with old colleagues and make new ones.
For students, brand new this year is that there will be cash awards for poster award winners. Also, TACSM will be kicking off our new judging process to decide our representative to the 2016 ACSM President’s Cup in May. We are so very excited about the opportunity to work with you this year and look forward to seeing all of you in a few short weeks.
