Welcome to the New Mexico State Society website. We try to keep the information available here as current as possible, the site contains information about AMT and your state society.
It is the official start of summer and it has been a hot one this year. In addition to the heat, we are experiencing some wild fires. We hope that those who are affected by these are kept safe and are able to return to a somewhat normal life.
Our spring meeting was held on April 23, 2016 at the Brown Mackie College in Albuquerque. We were able to have four hours of continuing education. I would like to thanks those individuals who presented and who were involved in getting presenters for this education meeting. During the business meeting we discussed our last change to the standing operating procedures for our state society. This change will be published here in on the web site for New Mexico and will be reviewed during our fall meeting. We agreed on the design for our new state pin. I am happy to say that we have received our new pins and these will be available for purchase during the convention. We selected our delegates for the convention and we will have four members representing New Mexico.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Brown Mackie College, our host for our meetings. Especially I would like to thank Sonia Krzeszewski, Academic Advisor, for her support during this meeting. Without her involvement, we would have our meeting elsewhere. Also Mister James Chesik, JD, Dean of Academic Affairs, who has been very receptive on helping AMT in New Mexico achieve new members from the Medical Assisting Course at the college.
We celebrated National Dental Assistants Recognition week, March 6 – 12, 2016 and Medical Lab Professional Week April 24 – 30, 2016 with our members. I know employers appreciate the contributions these professionals have brought to their respective practices and offices.
Make plans to join us for the National Convention in 2016 being held in the city of Memphis. Dates are July 18 – 22, 2016. Come and get the continuing education you need and partake of the musical atmosphere of this magnificent city. Make plans for 2017 National Convention scheduled for the Intercontinental Hotel in Kansas City Missouri July 9 - 13, 2017.
Our next meeting is scheduled for October 22, 2016 at the Pima Medical Institute on Golf Course Road NW in Albuquerque. Our Western District Councillor, Sheryl Rousivill, is scheduled to attend. We will be discussing the need to select an Assisted Editor to help and then take over for Gretchen Tupa.
I look forward hearing from our members and if you have any suggestions on improving our site please let me know.
Virgil E. Marchand, RMA (AMT) President NMSSAMT
