President's Message

Welcome to the New Mexico State Society AMT website. We try to keep the information here as updated as possible. Summer and the heat, wind, and unfortunately, fire are here. I hope everyone stays safe and well.

Dates to remember for next year.

We recognize all the Phlebotomists for their hard work. Drawing blood is an art form. Phlebotomy Week is February 10 -14, 2025. Registered Dental Assistants week is March 2 – 8, 2025. Medical Laboratory Professionals Recognition Week is April 20 – 26, 2025. Registered Medical Assistants Week is October 21–25, 2025. This is a great way to say thank you to them.

Our spring meeting was a success. We were able to provide three credit hours of Continuing Education Credits for our members. We reviewed the new State Society By-Laws. These By-Laws will be made available for all state members to review and make comments. During our fall meeting, we will vote on adopting them.

AMT’s Annual Meeting is July 8 -12, 2024 in Saint Louis, Missouri. During this time, you could obtain 9 continuing education credit hours, which is also a time to make new friends or reconnect with old ones. The 2025 Annual Meeting will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania July 20-25th in the eastern district. This district includes the areas from Pennsylvania to Maryland, and up to Maine.

I would like to thank Pima Medical Institute and instructor Lisa Gabaldon for assisting in putting our meetings together. It is with her help we have a location to hold our meetings. Thank you very much.

I look forward to hearing from our members and if you have any suggestions on improving our website, please let me know. Hope to see you at our meetings.

Virgil E. Marchand, RMA (AMT)
President NMSSAMT
