The annual meeting is a centerpiece of the work of the Society, featuring postgraduate courses and workshops, roundtables and expert sessions, scientific forums, and poster presentations. The Pregnancy Meeting™ is the premier event for presenting and learning about cutting-edge science in obstetrics and provides participants the opportunity to connect with leaders and colleagues in maternal-fetal medicine.

As an organization representative of all maternal-fetal medicine specialists, the SMFM strives to encourage an atmosphere of inclusion. The Program Committee is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in all its forms including gender, race, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, geographic location, practice type, sexual orientation, age, and culture within our membership and especially in our leadership. It is the committee's goal to establishing programs that support these goals in an effort to build a culture that will attract the best and brightest physicians to our specialty, increase the research being conducted by a diverse population of researchers, foster the best educational exchange, and enhance patient care.

IMPORTANT: The Program Committee may suggest modifications to all portions of this proposal, including the proposed faculty in order to adhere to the Society's Commitment to Diversity Statement and/or ACCME's Standards of Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education.
