James Slawny

1933-2013 - Jim was a founder and principal partner of EAI and served as the Executive Director for two of our national medical associations. Under his leadership, the associations have strengthened in membership size, program offerings and assets every year.

Jim was responsible for many firsts in the industry, such as the recording of an entire medical convention on interactive CD-ROM in 1993. He instituted CME and self-assessment tests in medical journals, developed doctors' "job fairs" at annual conventions, created association computer resource centers, launched a satellite journal club, published a practice management newsletter, established a medical foundation and led strategic planning retreats for association officers and boards.

Prior to founding EAI, Jim was assistant executive director and public relations director for the 15,000-member Illinois State Medical Society where he was employed for 20 years.
