President's Message

Mark E. Nunnally, MD, FCCM


It is exciting to begin our annual cycle with such enthusiasm! Our meeting in Seattle was well attended and very interesting. SOCCA continues to partner with IARS for educational content, and we are very excited to be partners in a great program.

Submissions for the 2025 SOCCA/IARS meeting are due June 2 – please send us your ideas. Submissions can be made to:

For those of you who haven’t met Jennifer Rzepka, our new administrator from the Association Resource Center (ARC), I encourage you to drop in at one of our events. She has been a tireless steward of SOCCA and helped make our management transition as seamless as possible.

SOCCA thrives because of its volunteers. We have a great structure of committees and subcommittees that thrives from all the creative energy you bring to the organization. If you are already engaged, please accept my gratitude for your efforts. If you aren’t and are interested, please reach out to us. We serve our members, who then make us stronger.

The strategic goals of SOCCA are to:
1. Sustain and grow membership.
2. Foster and promote member engagement and contributions.
3. Develop an active research section.
