Spring 2017 President's Letter
The Spring Meeting will be held at Embassy Suites in St Charles, Missouri on April 8th, 2017 in the Matson Room. Address: Two Convention Center Plaza, St. Charles MO 63303. 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, Missouri July 9 – July 13, 2017 at The Intercontinental Hotel at the Plaza for $129.00 + tax. If you are a member and resister prior to May 1st, it is $225.00 which is less than half price. Please go to the AMT website (americanmedtech.org) to learn more about this and the conference. If you are interested in attending the AMT Educational Program in Kansas City, attend the MOSSAMT spring meeting to see if you qualify as a delegate, which could help offset some of the funds.
We will be taking 3 Missouri Baskets for the Welcome Party at Nationals since it is held in our state. If you want to donate a St. Louis, Kansas City. Or Missouri item please bring it with you to the Spring Meeting. If you attend the Welcome Party at National’s you will be placed in a drawing to win one of the state baskets.
We will also talk about some state awards that MOSSAMT will start giving to our members. Please come to the spring meeting to learn more about the awards. If you have a paper you would like to submit to be published in the journal, please send it to Sarah Kuzera, at email@example.com.
The Fall Meeting will be held October 14, 2017 in Tan-Tar-A Resort, Lake of Ozarks, MO. Look for more information for the upcoming meeting on the MOSSAMT website.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Spring 2017 Letter from the Editor
Hello fellow MOSSAMT members!
Conference season is among us; at least that is what I refer to April, July, and October as. I do not know about the rest of you but there has been so much that has changed since this time last year. One major event in my life is that I finished my doctoral degree in education. I am glad to finally be done and I feel invigorated. Attending school and finishing school has been the constant for the past 3 years.
Another constant has been attending conferences with MOSSAMT and the AMT. It is always great to see everyone and to learn new things while also touching base with various speakers, is so great. The idea of giving back to a society that gives so much to its members, just feels wonderful. It is important for all of us to be active members. One main way of giving back is just by attending or spring and fall conferences in our great state. How lucky are we that this year the AMT 79th Educational Program and National meeting is being held in Kansas City, Missouri July 9-13th? How many of you plan to attend? How many delegates will we have this year?
Some other ways to help is to provide written works. We are in need of some great educational articles for our MOSSAMT newsletter. I would like to publish more than one in each of our publications. How many of you are educators? If you are, please forward some of your student’s great work. It looks great on a resume to put that you are a published author!
I’m looking forward to meeting up with you at our Spring Meeting this April 8th at the St. Charles Convention Center. Please stay for the MOSSAMT meeting and bring your ideas and thoughts on how to make our state society the best it can be. See you there! Happy Easter.
Dr. Sarah Kuzera
