Pacific Southwest AHMP Chapter Meetings

The PSW Chapter holds general meetings (i.e. quarterly), offering networking time in conjunction with a facility tour or dinner meeting with a guest speaker typically. We rotate meeting locations in Southern California to accommodate attendance by as many members as possible. A list of meetings is maintained here to assist members in determining their recertification point opportunities.

If you have an idea for a meeting you'd like to see, please contact us! We'll keep this table updated as meeting locations and topics are updated.
