Poster Session Opportunity

2018 Poster Session Opportunity

For 2018 Corporate Members and/or 2018 Annual Conference Sponsors and Exhibitors

This year NORM is hosting a Poster Session on Friday afternoon. The poster session begins at 4:15pm and concludes at 6:00pm. This time frame allows our attendees to visit your posters between the last breakout session and the Friday evening reception.

The goal of the session is to allow you to present information that will aid our attendees when they return to their practices. The 42” X 56” poster will allow you to share this information in a visually appealing manner grabbing the attendees’ attention.

Potential topics for your posters include:

  • Billing and Coding
  • Human Resources
  • Advocacy
  • Your Services (ie nursing program)
  • Compliance Problem Areas
  • Use of Quality Data to Practice’s Benefit
  • Health and Wellness
  • Propose a Topic

Topics not acceptable for poster sessions are topics that are clinical or that are selling your company or product.

On each poster NORM will require you to include a gold coin with part of our mystery. NORM will supply the gold coin. The members that solves the mystery after visiting all posters will place their name in our treasure chest for a chance to win one of several exciting prizes.

To participate in the poster session NORM Corporate Members, Sponsors and Exhibitors must submit an application (see form at the bottom of this page) by June 30. The applications will be reviewed by our conference poster committee and then the NORM board will make the final decision on the posters that will be included in the poster session. This decision will be made no later than July 15. During the review process the committee will only review the abstract not the organization that submitted.

The cost of the poster is $3,000. This provides you with one additional person to attend the conference and be with your poster at all times. If you submit more than one poster the second will be $2000. Posters may be setup no more than 15 minutes before the session begins and must be taken down 15 minutes after the poster session ends.

There is a UPS store on site that can assist with printing and mounting your poster. They charge $139 to print and mount your poster. Additional information will be shared with those chosen to participate.

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
