To Whom It May Concern,

The Macula Society is pleased to announce that the 43rd Annual Meeting will be held at Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, California on February 19-22, 2020. The purpose of the Society is to provide a forum for the presentation and dissemination of the most current and most advanced scientific information and research available in retinal vascular and macular diseases.

Unlike the meetings of most other societies, there are no exhibitor booths. However, corporate representatives have the opportunity to attend all Scientific Sessions as well as participate in all extracurricular activities (including breaks, breakfasts, dinners, tour options, and social activities) with our members and attendees. The meeting is open only to Macula Society members, co-authors and supporter’s representatives.

The meeting begins Wednesday afternoon with a Case Study conference and scientific session followed by a Welcome dinner. Scientific sessions will be held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Annual Macula Society Awards and lectureships will be presented during the scientific sessions. A Gala dinner will be held Friday evening for all attendees and guests.

Your company would be acknowledged as a supporter in the Scientific Program, which is distributed to all meeting attendees. Recognition will also be given on our website, on the meeting APP, and an acknowledgement would be included on the thumb drive of the scientific session which is distributed to all members at the meeting. If your company chooses to support at the Ruby level or above, your corporate logo and a link to your company’s website could be posted on our website, We welcome the opportunity to discuss special funding opportunities that can be customized to your specific corporate needs. We appreciate you taking the time to review the 2020 medical education support and promotional support levels and agreement forms enclosed in this mailing, which secures your commitment for the 42nd Annual Macula Society meeting.

This meeting is jointly sponsored for continuing medical education credit with the Medical College of Wisconsin. The Office of Continuing and Professional Education strictly enforces all corporate policies and procedures and standards of the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
