President's Message

Merry Christmas,

I hope this Holiday season brings you well wishes. As we close out the year and begin another year, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be your President for another year. I would like to thank the AMT National Board for the opportunity they have given me and have entrusted me to appoint me as the 2023 non-voting Board Observer. It is an incredible honor, and I am looking forward to the experience. If you are interested in being a Board Observer for next year, applications are available on the website.
