Working together, we can build a brighter future. We take special care in preparing our meetings carefully, and in taking care of our guests well.Meetings should leave behind useful results academically and professionally, as well as memorable moments amongst friends.The SAS has sponsored many meetings, from small lectures, full-day workshops and symposia, to full-blown conferences over the years.A monthly evening club, associated with a light dinner and sponsored by one of the many pharmaceutical companies which have always been very supportive.Although most non-conference meetings were prepared at the spur of the moment, this year we have added an activity which we hope will survive the test of endurance and continue into the future, the morning clinical meetings, sponsored by hospitals and scheduled in the first Thursday of every month.
