The North Carolina Society of Medical Assistants, an affiliate of the American Association of Medical Assistants, will be having its annual convention, March 24-27,2022 at the Holiday Inn Resort in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The NCSMA will be the host for this event.
The American Association of Medical Assistants is a tri-level, non-profit organization of medical assistants who work under the supervision of a physician. This includes those working in allied health fields.
We invite your company to exhibit at this statewide event. A space, with an eight-foot skirted table and two chairs, will be provided at a cost of $200.00 for two days and $150.00 for one day. Since the spaces are limited, please respond as quickly as possible. This is an ideal opportunity for you to contact medical assistants from across the state. You will be given a list of the attendees and their employers, and you will be introduced to the assembled body. If you do not wish to exhibit, but would like to support our organization, a donation/sponsorship will be gratefully accepted and acknowledged to the attendees.
Exhibits will need to be set up and ready for display on Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Saturday from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. Lunch tickets for Friday and Saturday are available at an additional fee.
Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. The attached form should be completed and mailed no later than March 10, 2022.
