I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. May it be better than last year. We are slowly reopening our state with people and businesses getting back to somewhat normal. I hope we continue this path and do not revert to the beginning of last year. All of us are thankful to the essential workers who saw to the needs of people keeping them well. Please stay healthy and follow recommended guidelines by washing your hands and wearing a mask, if required.
Due to the recent increase of virus variants and concerns for the health and safety of our members our previously scheduled meetings were cancelled. We currently have tentative dates set for our 2022 state meetings. The Spring meeting is tentatively scheduled for April 23, 2022, and the Fall meeting is tentative scheduled for October 22, 2022. It will be great to meet again with everyone. Please note the new place and address for these meetings. Pima Medical Institute Main campus at 4400 Cutler Ave NE Albuquerque. Please continue to check the website regularly for future updates.

I would like to thank Pima Medical Institute and their instructor, Lisa Gabaldon for assisting in putting our meetings together. It is with her help that we obtained a location to hold our upcoming meetings. Thanks much.
I look forward to hearing from our members and if you have any suggestions on improving our website, please send us an email at email@example.com. Hope to see you at our meetings.
