We were so excited to celebrate our 1st in person MNHSSAMT Business Meeting post COVID restrictions on May 7. It was awesome to see everyone again. We had a fantastic meeting with a wonderful breakfast compliments of our state society. We also awarded our student scholarship winners (Ashley Walker, senior at the University of Maine at Augusta and Allie Beals, University of Maine studying Medical Laboratory Science) See the pictures from the event in our photo gallery. In addition, we elected Carlo Laserns, AHI(AMT) as our newest Board Member. The position has been vacant for approximately 3 years, and we are extremely happy to have Carlo join us. He has lots of energy and great ideas and we look forward to working with him.
We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, AZ in July.
May there be peace on earth and in our hearts.

2022 Spring/Summer Eastern District Councillor Message
Heartfelt salutations to the AMT family.
I hope that everyone is as excited as I am to finally meet in-person and enjoy the others’ company in the sessions, discussions, and laughter. As the spring season slowly emerges and the state facilities reopen, the state society officers and board members are planning and working on setting up the state board and scientific/business meetings and events. On behalf of the state society officers and board members, we encourage the membership to frequently visit your state society’s website and online communities to obtain present and future dates, times, places, and registration of the upcoming events and meetings.
The AMT Annual Meeting is at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, AZ, July 18- 22, 2022. Please refer to the AMT website for updates regarding the registration, hotel reservations, CE sessions, meetings, and events. In honor of their participation and services, the 2019 awards will be presented to the winners at the meeting in Scottsdale.
Hold on to your raffle ticket for the chance to win a state basket at the Welcome Party. It is a joyous social event to gather with friends, meet the membership, share laughter, participate in activities, relax, enjoy some finger food, sing along, and put a little spring to your step for a little dancing.
The state society president and vice president are invited to attend the State President’s Leadership Forum session on Wednesday, July 20. The session will be conducted by Kaye Tschop, MT, Executive Councillor. There will be an introduction of the state society officers, the district councillors, and sharing of pertinent information. I hope everyone present will take the opportunity to ask questions, comment, discuss, make state society announcements, and share ideas.
Members are invited to attend the 2022 State Society Leadership Training on Friday, July 22, 2022, for an instructional day of insightful updates. It is an opportunity to review revised information and participate on an open forum to obtain answers.
I am available for assistance, please contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will reply as soon as possible.
See you at the 2022 Scottsdale Annual Meeting!
