Including the Fifth Annual CASL Winter Meeting

2009 CDDW & CASL Winter Meeting

Dear Colleagues,

Please find enclosed a preliminary program for the joint 2009 Canadian Digestive Diseases Week (CDDW) and 5th Annual Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver (CASL) Winter Meeting, taking place Friday February 27 to Monday March 2 in Banff. The meeting begins Friday afternoon with the Postgraduate Course and concludes Monday morning. All of the following program components will be held at the Fairmont Banff Springs:

Gastroenterology Residents-in-Training (GRIT) Course (open to invited residents only): Tuesday February 24 to Friday February 27 Scholars' Program (open to invited students only): Wednesday February 25 to Friday February 27 Practitioners and Scientific Programs: Friday February 27 to Monday March 2

February 27 ­ March 2, 2009

** PRE-REGISTER NOW ** We urge you to visit the website (http://www.cagacg.org/cddw.aspx) and register early to reserve your seat at Breakfast with the Experts and various Small Group Sessions where attendance is limited and pre-registration is required. Conference registration is included as part of CASL membership and CAG Regular/Trainee/Senior/Supporting Membership (a reduced registration fee applies for Affiliate/ International Members). Non-member registration is $500. ACCOMMODATION BOOKING Delegates will arrange their accommodation directly with the Fairmont Banff Springs, which will provide confirmation to delegates. Room reservations are your responsibility; CAG and CASL will not be involved in this process. Reservations can be made in one of two ways: * Phone 1-866-540-4406 and advise that you are with the "Canadian Digestive Disease Week" group, or give the group code "CFE9CD". * Visit www.fairmont.com and make a reservation using promo code "GRCDD1". Direct links to the group's reservation page are ­ English: http://www.fairmont.com/EN_FA/Reservations/ReservationAvail ability?hc=BSH&pc=GRCDD1 French: http://www.fairmont.com/FR_FA/Reservations/ReservationAvail ability?hc=BSH&pc=GRCDD1 Please book your room early and before December 19, 2008; after this time the hotel will not be holding rooms for delegates and your request may or may not be granted based on availability. See you in Banff!

The program is based on results of the 2008 members' needs assessment. Appropriate sessions will be accredited (section 1) by the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. We continue to strive to provide you with an excellent annual scientific meeting while looking for ways to control increasing costs. As a result, the cost of attending the annual meeting has remained stable over the past few years. Due to the substantial increase in meeting costs, there will be an ongoing need for members to bear a greater share of this burden. This is in keeping with other National Specialty Societies and with the changing direction in regard to physician education. LIVE ENDOSCOPY Brought to you from Peter Lougheed Centre in Calgary, live endoscopy will be offered again in 2009. SMALL GROUPS Given the demand for small, interactive learning opportunities, Breakfast with the Experts and Small Group Sessions are an integral part of the program.
