Message from the President

Dear Member:


Our 34th annual meeting is this week on Thursday at the JW Marriott in Austin, TX. We have a great program for those who will be attending.

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that SAMBA will be managed by a new association management firm, Wellington beginning June 1, 2019.

 Wellington will be onsite during the annual meeting and they are excited to host Soapbox Meetings.  Soapbox Meetings are opportunities for you to talk openly and freely about any and all topics that are relevant to ambulatory anesthesia and the work of SAMBA.  Part of their role as your new association management firm is to learn about your goals, vision and growth opportunities for SAMBA  and to learn how we can better serve you and find new ways of increasing the impact of SAMBA.

Please take some time during the Soapbox Meetings to meet with them and share your thoughts and ideas. Here is the schedule of their meetings that will take place in Room 207 at the JW Marriott Austin: 

  • Thursday, May 9:  10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, 3:00 – 7:00 PM
  • Friday, May 10:  Noon – 3:00 PM
  • Saturday, May 11:  7:00 – 10:45 AM, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you in Austin.



Kumar G. Belani, MBBS, MS, FACA
President, Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia.
