CVMS Events


We intend to have quarterly membership in-person meetings or events that will serve as a way to provide social interaction, entertainment, food , drinks, updates on the status of CVMS, and a program of one or two speakers on topics of current general interest relating to medicine or healthcare. We will usually invite legislators or prospective legislators whom you can speak with directly regarding their views on healthcare and what you would like to see happen in medical care in our area and beyond. Getting together at these meeting is important for a number of reasons:

  • So we can socialize with our friends and colleagues. This is proven to help prevent burnout and loneliness, and to help bring some social enjoyment into our lives. Plus it's a safe place where we can commiserate with our fellow professionals about what's happening to Medicine these days. We can at lease ventilate and go home feeling better.
  • So we can get updates about what CVMS is doing to reduce our workloads, get better revenue for what we do, and help to improve our lives and that of our patients. CVMS is your voice in all these matters. You have NO input or control otherwise. 
  • So we can learn about new ways of practicing, better ways of billing. easier ways of keeping up our EMRs, improving patients' health literacy. 
  • So we can organize groups with special interests in sports, journals, books, traveling, collecting, research, writing, antique cars, model railroading, art, photography, etc., etc. You name your interest, we can make a group out of it.
  • So at the end of the day, we can say we did the best we could. We spoke up about the problems we see in Medicine today. We became a voice at the table at least. People started listening to us. And we tried to make a difference in changing what we knew was wrong. The more we talk about, and the more we let our legislators know about it, the more likely we are to change it.

The next big event is our SummerFest Membership Meeting on June 26th at the Princess Anne Country Club. This will be our last promotional meeting that will be still be free for non-members. After that, membership or special invitation will be required to attend. If you join now as a new member, the dues will be half-price for the rest of this year. In January, the dues will be full price again for the year 2025.

Roman Fasces: A symbol of strength and power due to the bundling of many into one united entity.

The Roman Fasces was a symbol of strength and power occurring as a result of many binding together. It was made of multiple elm or birchwood rods about 5 feet long tied together and sometimes including an axe. It was carried by attendants to soldiers or powerful figures in ancient Rome. For us, it symbolizes that we are stronger and more powerful if we bind together in supporting our goals.
