Important information about your participation in the 2014 ACR Annual Practice Leaders Meeting:

  • Please download the presentations in advance of the meeting. The ACR 2014 Practice Leaders Meeting endeavors to be a paper-less event and print copies will not be available on site. The lectures are dynamic and minor changes to the presentation materials may occur.
  • Attendees are encouraged to participate in polling during the Plenary Sessions. Votes and opinions will be submitted via text message to a phone number which will be displayed during the lectures. See how it will work here.  
  • The Saturday Breakout sessions will be held in three separate meeting rooms. Attendees will be divided into three groups and will have the opportunity to attend each session.  These smaller groups will provide facilitate interaction with peers and faculty. The color on your badge will indicate the room of your first session.
