Greeting to the Southern District Membership!
I am genuinely excited about seeing my AMT family this summer at the Annual Meeting July 18-22, 2022, at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, Scottsdale, AZ. I cannot believe we are finally getting together for an in-person meeting. I have really missed being together! I hope you are planning to attend the Annual meeting. The educational sessions, the committee meetings, the Town Hall, Welcome party, Awards Banquet, and many other events are so fun and exciting. BUT for me the most awe-inspiring event is the opening session. All the states together, the pledge to the flag and words of wisdom imparted to everyone always thrills me and brings up emotion. It is awesome!
Please make every effort to attend this meeting. You will not regret it.
The awards that were to be given at the meeting in Albuquerque, NM for 2019 work will be bestowed on the recipients in Scottsdale, AZ at the Awards Banquet Tuesday, July 19, 2022. This event is always a wonderful time where we celebrate and honor the hardworking allied health professionals and their special talents and contributions to the profession. Come and bring a friend to this special occasion.
The Welcome Party on Monday evening is an especially nice casual evening. We get an opportunity to visit with everyone attending the meeting. Renewing our friendships and making new friends is always a good experience. All the states and the attendees to the meeting together again! Oh, what fun!!
There have been many new changes from jot forms to electronic badges recently. Don’t get left behind. Presidents and Vice-Presidents please plan to attend the Leadership training on Friday July 22. You will learn more about all the changes coming our way.
States are beginning to have their BOD meetings, Business meetings and Scientific meetings for the spring. When you submit your appointed or elected delegates this year, you will be using a jot form. Make sure you have this form completed and submitted by May 15.
Please do not forget to check your AMT state society website frequently. There are many updates, and this is an ever-changing tool for us to use. You can find the registration information for the Annual Meeting at americanmedtech.org/CE-Meetings/Meetings/Annual-Meeting.
Remember that as Southern District Councillor, I am here for you. See contact information below. Happy Spring everyone! See you in your next State meeting and/or the Annual Meeting!
Warm Regards, Anna
