Our 2023 Annual Meeting in San Antonio has been a huge success. I want to thank the conference attendees, presenters, exhibitors and allied health organizations for your participation and enthusiasm! To the volunteers and ASHT staff, your hard work and time spent planning this conference made it a wonderful networking event.

For the past year, the 2023 Annual Meeting Committee has worked hard to produce a conference where learning is a priority, with all the aspects of clinical application, advocacy, research and networking involved. Getting together with people who strive to be the best therapists and specialize in hand and upper extremity treatment is always exciting and proves to be an event people love.

The Annual Meeting has shown “resilience” as we continue to grow both in person and virtually in response to a changing world. Isn’t it great to have the opportunity to get together in person? As we met continuing education needs, we networked with our exhibitors, presenters and friends new and old. In the next few weeks, the recorded lectures will be available for all attendees on the ASHT On-Demand Platform. We encourage you to complete the meeting evaluation and obtain your certificate by the January 31, 2024 deadline. Meanwhile, Brocha Stern and her 2024 Annual Meeting Committee are working hard to put together a great conference in St. Louis.

Enjoy the rest of 2023 and we hope to see you in St. Louis next year at the ASHT Annual Meeting! Thank you all for attending!
