Happy Fall Y’all! 
As these words are being written, we are on the tail end of Hurricane Florence!  I hope and pray that everyone has weathered the storm with minimal damage and loss.  We are “Carolina Strong”!!  Please continue to pray for and support any relief efforts around you.  If somehow I can help, please let me know.  I will do my best to help or steer you in the right direction.  As we move on into fall, hopefully we can get some relief from all the heat and humidity that SC summers bring.   

Summer was an exciting time!!  First was our own educational meeting in Greensboro, NC with our neighboring state of NC.  The Carolinas Clinical Connection was held in March and was a tremendous success!  It was hosted by the NC chapter of AMT and many continuing education sessions were offered.  Please make plans to join the educational meeting that are offered each year and come and network with us!  You’ll be glad you did! 

Second was the national convention held this year in Washington DC!  What an exciting time for me!  This year was my first opportunity to go to national and I am so glad I did!  The meeting was held at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.  Just two blocks from the White House, minutes from the Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, The Library of Congress, Arlington National Cemetery, and many other historical sites, there was plenty to do and see during our stay.  This event was held July 1-5, 2018 so we were there for 4th of July fireworks over the Potomac!  They were magnificent!  We attended a concert on the White House Lawn too!  Wow!  Being held in July also let us enjoy the beautiful landscapes of cherry blossom trees and many other stunning botanical beauties around the fair city!!  The educational potion of the convention was just as impressive!  For ones like me who were first timers, there were sessions held so we would know what to expect, what was expected of us, and all things the meeting had to offer.  It was super helpful!  There were general sessions as well as “discipline-specific” sessions, sessions on leadership and ways to improve your skills each day.  Throughout the week there were many opportunities to meet the AMT staff and board members.  By the end of the week we got involved in decision making for AMT.  Our involvement allows us to help shape the future direction of AMT and participate in voting processes.  South Carolina was represented well!   In the pages ahead you will be able to see in our delegate reports what a grand opportunity being a part of the national convention has been so let me encourage you to get involved on the state level and set your sights on future fun! 

Next year’s national convention is set for July 1-5, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois.  It will be held at the Chicago Hilton Hotel and plans are already underway!  Please consider marking your calendar and join us for all the networking opportunities, educational merits, and assets that participation offers.  We’d love to see you there!   

Please know that we are here to help!  Our officers, board members, and councilors are available to answer questions and encourage you in your endeavors and getting involved is very rewarding so come join us!
