Clinical Congress Then and Now: Member Services

Member Services at Clinical Congress in 1951

Staff of the American College of Surgeons have always played a very active role in the annual Clinical Congress, from helping out at registration, staffing offices that answer needs of Congress attendees, and assisting with the convocation.

In recent years, staff members have been visibly present at the ACS Member Information Services booth, either in the main exhibit hall or just outside it. Here, trauma program staff members (below) assist Congress attendees with computer-based resources, and tell them about the latest services provided by the College to its members. Through the decades, ACS staff members have been the “Face of the ACS” to all Fellows with whom they interact with—at the host-city convention center and at the ACS headquarters hotel.
