The American Society of Medical Association Counsel is pleased to invite ASMAC members to The Mauna Lani Bay Resort for the 43rd Annual ASMAC Fall Conference and some of the finest outdoor recreational activities. There are generally three hour long educational sessions each morning and roundtable discussions each day, concluding at 12:30 PM. The conference is noted for being casual with ample time and opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas and take a deeper dive into information presented in formal sessions. Most presenters have allowed extra time to participate in social activities, so we hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity.
Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows is nestled on a white sandy beach on the Kohala Coast on the Island of Hawaii. The resort includes the luxurious Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, Mauna Lani Spa and the Francis H I'i. Brown Golf Courses. The guestrooms, refreshed in 2013/2014, feature a beautiful view and private lanai. Mauna Lani is renowned for its devotion to preserving and enhancing the cultural history of Hawai'i. The resort is nationally recognized for its successful honu program, cultural activities, indigenous plant life and historic fishponds. Hawaiiana at Mauna Lani
