June 14, 2018
On September 25-27, Dale Woerner, chair for the 2018 RMC, AMSA staff, and the co-chairs for the 2018 technical program traveled to the heartland where they were welcomed by eleven members of the 2018 RMC host committee, chaired by Carrie Thomas. The 2018 RMC host committee has put a lot of time and effort into making sure that every event at the upcoming AMSA 71st RMC will be a Royal experience with some of the finest BBQ in the area on the menu.

So, make sure to mark your calendars and join us in Kansas City, MO June 24-27, 2018 for the AMSA 71st RMC.
