2020 Annual meeting of the FRS & FRBMA will focus on intermediate-term strategies for competing and succeeding in the US radiology marketplace, with an emphasis on important trends expected in the 2020s and beyond. This year’s theme is “2020 Vision: Surviving and Thriving.” Each year we kick off the annual meeting Friday morning with the annual FRS/FRBMA Golf Tournament. The fun continues Friday evening as our exhibitors and members come together for the popular Wine and Cheese Reception in the Exhibit Hall. We are always very grateful for the exhibitors’ support and we appreciate a personal visit with the exhibitors to thank them for their continued support of the FRS & FRBMA. There are additional opportunities to interact with our exhibitors on Saturday as the breakfast and coffee break will be held in the exhibit hall, and later, exhibitors will lunch with attendees to allow for continued discussion and interaction.

The FRBMA Session begins on Friday afternoon and joins the FRS Diagnostic General Session on Saturday morning with an outstanding lineup of nationally recognized speakers. The FRS Session will be highlighted by our annual series, The Steven G. Miles, M.D., FACR, Radiology Socioeconomic Address, featuring Dr. Lauren Golding, entitled “How Radiologists Get Paid; Today and Tomorrow”.

On Saturday afternoon we will have the Lawrence R. Muroff, M.D., FACR, Radiology Leadership Lecture—Dr. Kent Thielen will present “Journey From Radiologist to the CEO, Unique Perspective of What a CEO Needs”. Also on Saturday, there will be breakout sessions for Radiation Oncology and the Resident and Fellow Section. Our marquee event, the Gold Medal Reception and Cocktail Party, will be held early Saturday evening to honor the FRS Gold Medal recipient, the FRBMA Above and Beyond Award, and The LaDonna Nichols Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Other outstanding FRS & FRBMA members will be recognized for their contributions to the practice of radiology throughout the year. The earlier time for this event allows opportunity to go out and enjoy the beautiful rest of the evening.

On Sunday, day will begin with the Charles D. Williams, M.D., FACR Legacy Lecture and Breakfast presented by Dr. Michael Raskin, “The Interface of Radiology and the Law; Past, Present & Future”. This will be followed by the Clinical Keynote Lecture by Dr. Claire Bender “The Radiologist IS a clinician”.
