Brucker International Symposium
Each year, the International Networking Group sponsors the Brucker International Symposium held during the ACRM Annual Conference. This signature event was established in 2008 in memory of Dr. Bernard (Bernie) Brucker, a long-standing ACRM member, who died unexpectedly that year. Originally established as a lecture luncheon, the event has become a popular ACRM tradition and continues today as a very special symposium.
