    Please join us for the 2011 TMA Advocacy Retreat on Dec. 2 and 3. This year’s retreat, which will be held in Austin at the Westin Hotel at the Domain, will examine what drives TEXPAC’s political and policy processes each election cycle. Two special features will be a session for state specialty society leaders, and a campaign training school for TMA Leadership College scholars (open to all attendees). The Friends of Medicine Dinner on Friday night will honor key legislators instrumental in the Texas Medical Association’s successes this legislative session.
