BSM Consulting is ready and eager to see industry friends and make new acquaintances at the American Academy of Ophthalmology 2018 meeting in Chicago from Oct. 27-30. Whether walking the exhibition floor, leading presentations, or manning our booth, AAO provides us an opportunity to talk and learn from you — our esteemed colleagues — and share our own knowledge.

Similar to previous years, BSM will present at the annual gathering, covering a wide range of practice management topics from auditing to benchmarking. Our consultants will lead or partake in 22 presentations/sessions throughout the meeting at McCormick Place. We encourage you to attend, participate, and follow up with us after our presentations if you have questions, need advice, or would like more information.

Outside of presentations, our consultants will be available at BSM Booth #350. Stop by to chat with any of our knowledgeable team members and learn about our products and services. While there, be sure to enter our raffle for a chance to win a free one-year membership for your entire practice to BSM Connection — our flagship product. We hope to see you around!
