The Wilderness Medical Society is a non-profit organization that conducts professional educational meetings as one of the cornerstones of its overall mission.  Meetings are extremely expensive to produce.  The Society does not establish fees with the objective of making a profit, but sets them with the explicit goal of breaking even in order to continue to produce conferences.  The WMS is extremely cognizant of the increased costs associated with attending meetings for its members and non-member attendees.  It strives to make every educational event worth that cost by providing quality education and cutting-edge information in a collegial setting where you are always able to combine your profession with your passion.
