Will also need Formal Invitation to Speaker ASAP (Sample letter in Resources)

        Cant even send in Pre-application for CME until info is obtained
        And cant send out "Save the Date" email until Pre-Application is approved by ACS
        Again, the formal CME application is due 3 months before event (see above)
If Speaker has a Sponsor,  ask Sponsor to introduce Speaker at Fall Meeting
Make sure Lodging and Travel for Speaker is arranged
