The Fall Meeting will be held at WTI, Joplin, Missouri on October 1, 2016; address: 1715 N. Range Rd., Joplin, MO 64801. Remember registration is free for all active students. Active members can earn continuing educations credits.
I would like to encourage all Missouri members to attend the 79th Education Program and National Meeting that will be held in Kansas City, MO, July 9 – July 13, 2016 at The Intercontinental Hotel at the Plaza. The hotel rate will be $129.00 + taxes single double occupancy. We had over 400 in attendance in Memphis and I would like to see Missouri double that number. Please bring a Missouri items to our Fall or Spring meeting to add to the Missouri State Baskets that will be gifted at the AMT National Welcome Party.
AMT National Education Program and National Meeting would be a great way for the schools in Missouri to acclimate your students to the organization they will become members with once they pass their AMT credentials. I would also challenge each school to submit award nominations for Outstanding Student Award and Technical Writing Awards – go to the AMT website for more information about the awards www.ameicanmedtach.org (go to Schools – Student Resources – Scholarships and Awards). On that same page you will also find information for your students to participate in the Medical Assistant Student Challenge Bowl at nationals.
The Spring Meeting will be held April 8, 2017 in the St. Louis area. Look for more information for the upcoming meeting on the MOSSAMT website.
Sarah Kuzera is the editor for the MOSSAMT, and we would love for our member to submit paper you would like to submit to be published in the journal, please send it to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If any of our members have suggestions on topics they would like to learn more about, or if you would like to host a meeting at your place of employment/school, please contact me with this information. If you know someone wants to present at our meetings let me know that as well. I look forward to hearing from our members. You can contact me at email@example.com

Fall 2016 Letter from the Editor
Looking forward to the Fall Meeting that will be held next month at Wichita Technical Institute (WTI) in Joplin, MO. I can’t believe that it is already fall. It seemed like not very long ago, we were meeting for the Spring Meeting in Fenton, MO. Pictures from the April Meeting will be found in the upcoming journal.
I would like to thank Debbie Marshall for the article that she wrote for our journal and on that note, please keep sending articles that can be published for our journal. I would like to begin publishing an article from students as well, so educators, please forward me your student’s work (with their permission, of course)
At our fall meeting we will be electing two state officer positions; President and Treasurer. Active members are strongly encouraged to attend the state meeting and vote in the upcoming election. You will find information about the candidates for both positions in the upcoming journal. Please review the CVs that are linked and meet them all at the meeting on October 1st.
Please remember to bring any Missouri items that can be added to the state baskets that will be gifted at the AMT National Educational Program and National Meeting that will be held in Kansas City, MO, July 9-13th, 2017 at the Intercontinental Hotel. Let’s try to all be there since it isn’t very often that the National Conference is located in our great state.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on October 1, 2016 for learning, collaboration, and fun.
Sarah Kuzera, RMA, AHI
