HCMS Branch Meetings

Join us for networking, dinner and fun at your local branch meeting.

Branch meetings provide information on practice management, medical legislation, medical liability, other HCMS/TMA events, as well as networking opportunities. Branch officers are selected by their branch members and each branch president serves on the HCMS Executive Board. Each branch hosts three annual meetings within the branch area at various locations. Meetings include a reception starting at 6 p.m. and the Dinner & Program starting at 7 p.m.

HCMS has seven branch societies and HCMS members are designated to a branch in the area they work or reside. Refer to the Physician Directory  for your current branch designation. Click to review the branch zip code designations.

To help defray the meeting costs (i.e., CME programs, facility, meals and beverages) at the branch meetings, there is a small fee to attend.

  • HCMS members may prepay for a discounted fee of $50 for all three meetings, or pay at the door for a fee of $40 per meeting.
  • Members who are in their first or second year of practice, new HCMS member physicians, and members 35 and younger are invited to attend the meetings for free.
  • Guests of HCMS members may attend for a fee of $40 per meeting.
  • Non-members may attend for a fee of $100 per meeting.
  • Click for the branch credit card payment form.
