39th Annual Meeting and Technical Exhibition
July 27-31, 1997
The success of the 1997 AAPM Annual Meeting is a result of the tireless efforts and donated time contributed by numerous AAPM Members and non-members. On behalf of the Program Committee, Scientific Program Director, Scientific Program Co-Director/Works in Progress Coordinator, Education Program Co-Director, and the Local Arrangements Chair, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all of those responsible for organizing this meeting.
Those groups that especially need to be mentioned are the Invited Speakers, Symposia Moderators, and Session Chairpersons without whom our annual meeting would certainly be lacking. Special thanks to the Abstract Reviewers who spent many hours reviewing the abstracts which ultimately comprise the scientific portions of the meeting. I would also like to thank the members of the Local Arrangements Committee whose time and effort is often unappreciated but is critical to the meetings success. Finally, I thank the Headquarters staff, particularly Angela Keyser and Lisa Rose Sullivan, without whose professionalism, efficiency, tireless effort, and cheerfulness the Annual Meeting in its current form could not occur.
