Welcome to the North Carolina State Society (NCSSAMT) Website. The following information may be helpful for you to know to become active within our organization.
The North Carolina State Society has 3633 members as of 11/1/16, most of whom are MTs, MLTs, RMAs, and RPTs. Please make sure you keep all membership information up to date with AMT so that you may receive information and notifications concerning continuing educational opportunities and society business meetings. I encourage each member to join us for these continuing educational sessions; they include presentations that are geared toward your educational needs. They are normally held twice a year in the spring (Carolinas Clinical Connection) and in the fall (Fall Focus) with our sister organization, the North Carolina Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (NCSCLS). The meeting information is posted on the AMT NC State Society website (meetings and events) so that you can make plans in advance to attend.
Our spring educational seminar, Carolina’s Clinical Connection 2017 will be held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Wednesday March 29th through Friday March 31st 2017 in conjunction with NCSCLS, SCSCLS and SCSSAMT organizations at Double Tree Resort by Hilton. Please watch our website for upcoming information on this seminar for registration information. NCSSAMT Student Writing Awards will be presented during this event.
