Warm greetings to the MNHSSAMT members:
We are quickly shaking off the cold and dormant winter and getting active. Spring is well on its way, and it brings a renewal and new beginnings for all things. I know I am certainly ready for the warmth of longer days and sunshine.
The MNHSSAMT BODs has been fairly busy this spring. Our first task at hand was to review the MNHSSAMT Scholarship packets that were submitted. Each one of them is a well deserving candidate for this great monetary gift. We gave out 3 MLT and 1 MA scholarship this spring. Congratulations to Sara, Delaney, Lydia, and Jessica.
We held a quick BOD’s meeting and promptly went into our Spring Business meeting on the 1st of April at Olive Garden in Augusta. The MNHSSAMT Delegates were selected for the upcoming National AMT Educational and Business meeting in Norfolk Va., in July. Sounds like we are going to have a very busy 4 days at the meeting. We will be discussing and voting on many proposed and upcoming changes.
We had hoped to celebrate our scholarship award winners, but prior commitments prevented them from joining us for dinner.
The “Fall Conference” is once again going to happen in October. Once again it will only be a two-day event and is slated for the 17th and 18th of October at the Holiday Inn by the Bay. Please take the opportunity to attend this wonderful educational event. Many great educational’ s will be presented, and it is for all medical personnel, not just for laboratorians. The NELC committee is always open to individuals who would like to present a topic of importance or possibly a case study on an interesting patient. Please reach out to our beloved Treasure Steve Stockford and he can get you in touch with the right person to help you with this endeavor.
The MNHSSAMT Fall Business meeting will be held on October 18th at 5 pm at the Holiday Inn by the Bay. Hope to see some of you at the conference and the meeting.
