We hope you enjoed the 2014 CBBS Annual Meeting held at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Casino and Spa April 30 - May 3, 2014. Nestled within the Sierra Mountain Range, this stunning and newly renovated AAA Four Diamond Lake Tahoe hotel was a luxury lakeside setting, perfect for learning, networking and even some relaxation! 

The CBBS Annual Meeting remains the premier State association meeting, attracting physicians, medical technologists, nurses, product managers, donor resource professionals, and administrators from all over the western United States. This meeting offers excellent opportunities to network with colleagues in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. The theme for 59th Annual Meeting was Lake Tahoe, Breathtakingly Beautiful! It’s Worth the Visit

This year’s meeting had an outstanding line-up of speakers and topics from industry leaders and the networking of colleagues that you can only get with a live event. The educational sessions featured nationally and internationally known blood bankers and transfusion medicine specialists. You heard cutting edge presentations on serology and immunohematology, transfusion practices, cellular therapies, and topics critical to leading in a complex business and regulatory environment. The planning committees also designed programs with a renewed focus on practical issues relevant to those of us who work most closely with patients in hospital settings and donors in blood centers.

We hope you enjoyed the meeting in North Lake Tahoe, and have reserved the dates for the Joint CBBS-SCABB Meeting to be held in Las Vegas June 2-5, 2015!

This year’s meeting will be full of educational opportunities, with cutting edge presentations by industry leaders and the networking of colleagues that you can only get with a live event.

Kay Crull,
CBBS President

Take a moment to encourage just one more colleague to come with you, to join in, with the promise that they will not be disappointed, rather they are likely to be amazed!

Michael Hayward,
CBBS Past President
