HCMS Branch Meetings

Join us for networking at your local Branch Meetings

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

Branch meetings provide information on practice management, medical legislation, medical liability, other HCMS/TMA events, as well as networking opportunities. Branch officers are elected and each branch president serves on the HCMS Executive Board.

There is a fee to attend meetings to help defray costs (i.e. CME programs, facility, meals and beverages). The fee is waived for new HCMS members or early career physicians.


Meeting Fees:  

  • $50 assessment covering seven meetings - includes two in-person meetings and up to five virtual CME meetings throughout the year. To pay your $50 Branch Assessment, click here.
  • Non-physician guests of HCMS members may attend for a fee of $40 per meeting.
