Michigan Otolaryngologic Society 34th Annual Meeting

July 27-30 2017

Our Annual Summer Meeting is not only a cornerstone for our organization but also the favorite among our members and their families. That’s correct; our Summer Meeting is a family affair. We encourage our members to bring their families. While our members earn CME credits and network with their peers, their families get to play at a world-class resort. In between learning sessions, everyone gets to relax and play together!

About the Event

Our 2017 Summer Meeting is at Summit Village at Shanty Creek Resorts from July 27 to July 30. Bring your family and spend four days learning and playing. Summit Village is the resort’s western village flanking Summit Mountain and overlooking Lake Bellaire. This village first opened to the public as the original Shanty Creek in 1963.

Sessions as well as activities will take place in Summit Village’s flagship Lakeview Hotel and Conference Center. With 183 rooms, everything is under one roof with a full-service restaurant, lounge, bar, more than 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space, indoor and outdoor pools, a 3,000-square foot fitness center and spa.

We have a wide variety of topics planned for this year’s meeting sessions. In addition to the introduction of our 2017-2018 society officers, you will learn about pediatric anesthesia use, legal pitfalls, financial strategies and sleep conditions. We will also announce the Abstract Awards for the best residents in otolaryngology.

One of our scheduled activities is golfing at Summit Village, which is home to two of the resort’s four golf courses, Arnold Palmer’s award-winning The Legend and Summit Golf Course, and the Timberline Wine and Beer shop, Sarducci’s Pizza and Pasta, The Shanty Tavern, and the Total Look salon.

We hope you join us for this educational and fun event with your families. Our room block expires June 26 so register for the event and your lodging today!
