2019 President’s Message

The AMT Educational Program & National Meeting was held in Chicago, IL during the 80th Anniversary (1939-2019) of AMT as a nationally and internationally recognized certification agency and membership society for allied health professions. It was a great success, and well attended. I was very impressed with the outcome and want to thank each of you who contributed time and energy to a fantastic convention.

I can honestly say that it was truly enjoyable and rewarding. Not only was I able to visit with old friends, I was blessed to have met new friendly staff and new members as well. The conventions for me are not so much about the information that is presented or the scientific knowledge gained, but more so, the impartation of the entire AMT staff, members and guests. Our organization is filled with great people, special mentioned to Mr. Chris Damon, Executive Director, AMT staff and members who make the organization great.

I salute Mr. Randy Swopes, who served as District Councilor for 9 years plus position in the state level as Vice President and Editor who received the 2018 Technologist of the Year and GEM (Go Extra Mile) award. Also, to Mrs. Karen Brockelsby behind the scenes who served as excellent treasurer for years and strictly followed the rules and protocol. “Thank you very much”.

As we come full circle for another season, I want to encourage you regarding serving or be active in our state society. If you have not attended a state meeting as of yet, let me encourage you to make a commitment to attend the Fall Scientific Seminar to be held on Sep 21, 2019 in Leesville, LA. I invited excellent speakers with diversified topics that provide great occasion for acquiring CE credits needed for our certification and LA State license. Looking forward to seeing you.

However, don’t just attend-bring or invite another colleague with you and get actively involved by working through a committee or becoming an officer and serving at that level. To date we have 703 members!

I end this message with an inspirational Quote “Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show” Anonymous.
