Welcome to the Louisiana State Society Website!

2019 President’s Message

Happy 2019!!  I am so proud and humbled to have dedicated my life to serving our great Nation by providing care to our Soldiers, their families, and our beneficiaries at Bayne-Jones Army Community Hospital Department of Pathology Ft Polk, LA.  I’ve worked over 34 years and have loved every minute of it, but time to retire and enjoy life to the fullest on 31 December 2018.

It is with pride, honor, and respect that I am registered with American Medical Technologists and continue to support the mission and vision of our organization and have been able to represent you as your president for years, it is a lifetime achievement.  I thank Mr. Randy Swopes and Mrs. Karen Brockelsby for their long-time commitment, dedication, and achieving spirit that truly makes the difference. 

I urge young generation members to be active and have our State Society alive when we will retire.  To date, we have >700 certified AMT members in Louisiana.

What a great time we had in the Magnolia Educational Treasure in Mississippi! There were 124 attendees and the quality of our educational sessions was outstanding (as usual).

Please check the AMT LA State Society website for updates. The 81st annual National Convention will be held in Chicago Hilton Hotel, 720 S. Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL 60605 on July 01-05, 2019.  Hotel rates are $129.00 + tax for single or double occupancy.  Rooms with two double beds are $159.00 + tax. 
We urge all members to join us and have a nice bonding and be active members. This is an ideal way to meet the other AMT members from different States. It is a fact that the 21st generation use continuing education units (CEU) through webinars or online courses and increasingly popular as learning method, but the precious bonding is missing. 

AMT continues to work diligently to assure that our certification examinations receive appropriate recognition in state regulatory and professional licensure programs as ASCP.  

I end my 2019 greetings as seen in positive thoughts “You’ve survived a lot and you will survive whatever is coming”.

Ms Zenaida Maraggun, MS, MT(AMT), CLS(HHS)
