If you are hungry for more, the Women in Neurocritical Care (WINCC) luncheon symposium will feature keynote speaker Dr. Marie Baldisseri, Chancellor of the Board of Regents of the American College of Critical Care Medicine. We will end the meeting with a farewell reception. Please note that Sunday is a full day of meetings. At this year’s meeting, we have the opportunity to collaborate with our international member societies. On Friday September 16, we have two joint sessions. The first session is with the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) reviewing Fever Management in the Neurocritical Unit. In the afternoon, we will host a session with the Japan Society of Neurological Emergency and Critical Care discussing the role of continuous EEG monitoring. On Sunday, September 18, the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC) joint session will review important anesthesiology concepts related to endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke. This will be followed in the afternoon by a joint session with the Brazilian Neurocritical Care Association (ABNI) reviewing concepts of driving pressure and complications of zika virus infections. We like to work hard, study hard, and of course, play hard! Our third annual Fun Run and Walk has been scheduled for Friday morning, to kick off day one of our program. Be sure to bring your running shoes so you can have a healthy dose of fun and raise funds in hopes of receiving the top fundraiser t-shirt. If you’re not a runner or won’t be able to attend the meeting this year, you are still eligible to participate in the Society’s fundraising competition by creating your own fundraising team or donating to an existing team, and we hope you will do so! After Friday’s plenary, workshops, and concurrent sessions, everyone will head out on the Potomac Terrace of the Gaylord for our annual banquet – this year, a clam bake! You’ll be greeted by a stunning setting over the harbor as several bands play tunes from yesterday and today’s favorite artists. There will be plenty of yard games to play including bocce ball, mini golf, ladder ball, and life-sized Jenga. Please don’t miss the opportunity to dunk your favorite or not-so-favorite officers and board members for charity at our dunking booth. If you are still in the mood and have the legs for it, please join us following the Annual Banquet at the Pose Lounge and Nightclub for great music and dancing. As you can see, we have a full agenda for this year’s meeting. Workshops will fill up quickly, so register today to ensure your seat. We look forward to seeing you in National Harbor! Gaylord National is steps from National Harbor’s premier entertainment district. 5
