On February 20, the Louisiana Society of Anesthesiologists (LSA) hosted its first LSA Ambassadors meeting, a new LSA-sponsored education, training and organizational program. The goal of the LSA Ambassadors is to improve organization in the society, enhance responsiveness to challenges, and enhance bidirectional communications between LSA leadership and its members. The program also seeks to enhance the state’s key contact program as well as ensure physician anesthesiologists are developing and maintaining relationships with their lawmakers.
Nearly two dozen physician anesthesiologists from across Louisiana, each representing 15-20 physician anesthesiologists, attended the February 20 meeting. Attendees represented a range of experience, with some not even having yet attended a Legislative Conference or held a meeting with a legislator. ASA public relations staff attended as well to provide Leadership Spokesperson Training. Audience members also learned the do’s and don’ts of meeting with one’s lawmaker and received related education.
