CommitteeOn behalf of the Program committee, I invite you to our next meeting in our nation’s capital! We are completing the final touches on what promises to be another wonderful meeting packed to the brim with educational and networking possibilities. Washington, DC, offers a wonderful venue for our meeting in terms of the facilities, the many possibilities for meeting with colleagues and enjoying our beautiful capital.

Just a few of the highlights: We are again offering the Board review course. The Self-assessment will once again be composed of 75 challenging cases and the post-course online exam of 150 questions will yield 6.5 CME credits, 6.5 SAMS or 100 MOC SA Question Credits. We welcome our Helwig speaker, Dr. Luis Requena, who will bring us from the historical descriptions of adnexal tumors into the molecular age. Short courses will emphasize both tumor pathology of melanocytic and soft tissue tumors as well as many inflammatory skin disorders of topical importance. Join our new sessions on Quality Performance and Improvement and Navigating MOC. Mingle with our young colleagues at the Young  Physicians’ Forum. Discuss new ideas and projects over the Poster session and be sure to take in the ASDP Art Show as well. Visit the slide library and don’t forget to support your favorite “dueler” at the Duel in Dermatopathology. We will once again be challenged by the Evening slide symposium, expanded this year to 18 cases.

Take time to catch your breath and socialize with colleagues at the President’s dinner and then in your “spare” time, go out and enjoy the wonderful sites of DC!

Remember to take advantage of the early bird registration! Once again join us as we conclude our year-long celebration of 50 years of the ASDP and begin our next 50 together at this meeting!

Warmest regards,

Larry Gibson
2013 Program Committee Chair
