The first PAMS quarterly meeting of the year 2015 took place at Roy’s Restaurant in downtown Chicago.
The meeting was organized by our members and chaired by the President, Dr. K. Krol. 24 PAMS members were in attendance.
The event was sponsored by the Wealth Planning Network, represented by President Michael Jankowski and vice-president Larry Gatz.
The representatives of the Wealth Planning Network talked about creating sound financial plans for medical professionals, as well as retirement and estate-planning strategies.
Dr. Krol introduced a new member of PAMS: Dr. Kathy Tynus. Dr. Tynus is also the President-Elect of the Chicago Medical Society, and she talked about the benefits of a CMS membership and future cooperation between the organizations.
A short summary of our 65th Physicians Ball was presented. The event turned out to be a great success and generated a lot of positive feedback. Over 500 guests attended. We were honored by the presence of the Governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner.
