Board of Directors Meetings

The Board of Directors for the Pennsylvania Society of Anesthesiologists (PSA) meets at least three times every year. Every member is encouraged to attend any meeting.

  1. The Board of Directors Spring Meeting rotates between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh each year.
  2. The second Board of Directors meeting occurs in different venues throughout the state.
  3. The third Board of Directors meeting is held in conjunction with the PSA Annual Membership Meeting. The annual membership meeting for the PSA takes place prior to the American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting.

Check the American Society of Anesthesiologists website for this year’s host city. This meeting is an opportunity for all Pennsylvania anesthesia physicians and residents to learn about recent PSA activities and inquiry about membership. This venue has generated much interest from physicians whose busy work schedules do not typically permit them to attend other Board of Directors meetings.

The PSA also holds annual regional meetings in the Harrisburg/Hershey, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Erie areas. These meetings allow the Board of Directors to stay in closer contact with many busy colleagues.
