April 2019 President's Letter
Thursday, April 25, 2019
Dear friends and colleagues,
I know membership in AACS is important to each one of you, whether it's for the camaraderie across specialty lines, educational offerings and member benefits, or our advocacy efforts on behalf of cosmetic surgeons. As your president, I want to make sure you are reaping the rewards of all aspects of your membership.
To directly benefit the bottom line of your practice, AACS has established partnerships with leading companies like MedPro, Doctor.com and LendingUSA. Our newest partner, Doctor.com can help you manage and maximize your all-important online presence. They have a complimentary webinar coming up May 2 I encourage you to attend if you're seeking new strategies to grow your business, titled "5 Foolproof Strategies to Boost Your Online Reputation and Grow Your Aesthetic Practice."
Another AACS partner, LendingUSA, just recently enhanced their special offer for cosmetic surgery practices. They removed the 8% (borrower) origination fee on every loan and are keeping their promotional financing offer of 0% APR for patients when they repay their loan within six months. Stay tuned to hear more about this and other AACS partner relationships designed to benefit you.
Of course, I hope you also take advantage of member savings on our extraordinary educational programming, including online WebClinics, the 2019 World Congress on Liposuction coming up in September, our Board Review Course, and our recently announced fall Facial Cadaver Workshop with Julie Woodward, MD. These are all exceptional opportunities to enhance and refine your skills on today and tomorrow's most sought-after procedures.
Finally, please consider participating in our Membership Referral Program. If you refer a member before June 2019, you'll be entered in a drawing for big prizes. To help you, we've created tips and resources for reaching out to your colleagues. The more members we bring into the fold, the more we all benefit from each other's ideas, research, and experience, ultimately helping to improve our delivery of cosmetic surgery to our patients.
Chris Lowery, DO
