To All Our Members:
I am honored that you chose me to be your newly elected President. It is a role that I do not take lightly and one that comes with great responsibility. As your newly elected President, it is imperative that I represent you, and ensure that your voices are heard. As president, it is important that I fully engage with you by listening, making choices in your best interest, and acting with urgency and good intent. I promise to be fair and just as I work hard on your behalf.
I want to welcome our newly elected Vice President Tatian Castillo, Secretary Lauren Rogers, and Treasurer Tirsa Castillo. Welcome to our new board members Belgica Castillo, Dada Ayodele, Monique Brathwaite, and Anna Lewis. I am excited for the year ahead and I know that together we can achieve great things. I am a firm believer in collaboration and team effort. I welcome all innovative ideas and suggestions that will help to make our association run even better. I want this to be a successful year for all of us and I cannot do it without your help.

I am excited about this year and cannot wait to start this journey with you all. I have an open-door policy and will always keep an open line of communication, so please never hesitate to reach out to me. Even if you have a story, success or question, please remember to share it on the NJ online community page at community.americanmedtech.org. We love hearing from you, so please always reach out to New Jersey AMT.
I would like to thank Margaret Blaetz for the commitment and personal investment she brought to the role of President during her 4-year term. I hope to see her at all our meetings and annual meetings as a delegate.
Martha Howard, RMA, CPT (AMT)
