Creativity is a good attribute to have as Chair of Programs, which means planning with a committee all the non-outreach programs for the year. This year the process goes beyond coming up with a list of excellent programs and getting them scheduled and actualized. Each of the membership groups- Classic Members, Retired Physicians, Women in Medicine, Young Alliance and Physicians in Training – will have input into creating that list in order to make sure all members will have programs aimed at pleasing them, And of course, coping with the complications of the pandemic will have to enter into their planning. A tall order indeed.
