2016 Fall/Winter President's Message
I would like to say congratulations to all our new members who recently took their AMT exams and passed. I am asking each of you to stay involved in your state society meetings that are upcoming. State Society educational forums for 2017: Spring – Montgomery date and location to be decided (TBD); Fall – Mobile date and location TBD. Be sure to visit the state society web page for updates.
We had a great turn out in Gulfport, Mississippi at our Biennial Magnolia Educational Treasures (MET) Meeting. Thanks goes out to Dr. Paul Brown and the MET Committee for putting together two days of great and interesting sessions. I had the pleasure of meeting four AMT members of our state at the MET Meeting: Mr. Alfred Collins, MT from Birmingham, AL., Ms. Teresa Workman, MT from Prattville, AL., Mrs. Alda Oliver and Ms. Patricia Horn both RMAs from Mobile, AL.
I want to remind each and every one of AMT's 79th Educational Program and National Meeting in Kansas City, MO July 9-13, 2017 @ The Intercontinental Hotel at the Plaza. Go online to the AMT website to register for the meeting and also book your hotel room. I would like to let you all know that the "early bird" registration for the National Meeting in Kansas City is $225.00 before May 1, 2017; afterwards it will increase to nearly $400.
Rikki R. Packer, AAS, RMA
