Welcome to the Florida State Society Website!

Message from the President:

November 9, 2019 was my last day as the President of Florida State Society of American Medical Technologists. Thank you for the honor of serving our society for four years. Your support and engagement in FLSSAMT were instrumental in our growth and development during this time. Together we have increased membership, developed new professional relationships and enjoyed our meetings.

There are 6,910 Florida members and we continue to try to reach each member. AMT is constantly coming up with new ways to establish a strong connection with all AMT members. Please check the Florida website on a regular basis and read the AMT e-mails for up to date information.

The Fall Scientific/Educational Meeting in Fort Lauderdale on November 9, 2019 was a great success! We had an interesting and diverse program, with great reviews. Our goal is to have new speakers and to provide the topics as requested. There were 89 in attendance and a good time was had by all.

We were honored to have the AMT National President, Jeannie Hobson at our meeting. Everyone enjoyed meeting her and having her participate in our program.

Elections were held on November 9, 2019 at the business meeting. The slate of officers and Board of Directors are:

  • Oswald Skinner-President
  • Jose Velasquez-Vice President
  • Alice Macomber-Secretary
  • Deborah Janeczko-Treasurer
  • Ysabel Meek-Board of Director
  • Naomi Melvin-Board of Director
  • Solomon Goldenberg-Board of Director
  • Olivia Acosta-Board of Director
  • Kathleene Hardy-Editor

Save the dates for 2020. We will hold our Spring meeting on April 4, 2020 in the Orlando area. We will hold our Fall meeting in Fort Lauderdale on October 24, 2020. You will be getting e-mail blast of final details.

Again, I want to thank you for the privilege of being the FLSSAMT President for four years. Kaye Tschop, the Southern District Councillor provided support with great guidance and a lot of patience as I mastered the skills to serve as President of FLSSAMT. I cannot thank Kaye enough for her assistance. The Board of Directors worked extremely hard during this last four years and they deserve a great deal of appreciation and recognition.

See you in Orlando on April 4th, 2020. Help us begin the year with a record breaking attendance.

My Best,
Alice Macomber RN, RMA(AMT), RPT(AMT), AHI (AMT)
FLSSAMT President

Message from the Website Editor:

Greetings FLSSAMT! I hope this message finds you all doing well and recovering from this volatile year.

Our State Society has been busy this year! Members have had four opportunities for earning CEC's, networking and fellowship: our state meeting in Orlando, the AMT Annual Meeting in Chicago, a regional meeting in Tampa, and most recently our state meeting in Ft. Lauderdale. Our last meeting was exciting in that we elected our new BOD officers and two new BOD members!! Congratulations to all! See our President's Message above for details. Medical Assistant Recognition Week was also celebrated at our meeting. We were so happy to see so many participants! We love seeing all the new and familiar faces! Check out the pictures from the event in the photo gallery!

Our newsletter has a brand-new look, including different formatting, and colors representing our state and national organization's colors. Thanks to my committee and their good works, we received 2nd place at the 2019 AMT Annual Meeting for our newsletter! With humble thanks I was honored to receive Editor of the Year in Chicago. In addition, I am grateful to have been reappointed as Editor and look forward to providing you with a relevant and informative publication again this coming year.

FLSSAMT Is looking forward to bringing you another year of opportunities for continuing education and fellowship with other members. Watch the website and your email for details.

As always, stay safe, lend a helping hand when you can, and Pay it Forward, FLSSAMT!

Kathleene Hardy, AS, RMA
