President's Message

After a long hot summer with temperatures in the 80s and 90s, fall has officially arrived.  Your WV Board of Directors met in October and are busy planning your Spring Scientific and Board Meeting to be held April 13, 2019 at the Pierpont Advanced Technical Center near I79 off Exit 132 in Fairmont.  We are currently lining up our speakers – scientific topics discussed include Oncology/Hematology, ECGs, Clinical Research in Cardiology, and Legislative Issues in WV.   In addition to our educational and business meetings, we also have a great lunch with scrumptious desserts!  A complete list of topics and meeting agenda will be sent out March 2019.  Mark your calendars NOW so you don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to earn your CEUs, and network with AMT members in your area.

The AMT National Convention will be held July 1-5, 2019 at the Chicago Hilton Hotel, Chicago IL.  Room rates are $129 single/double +tax.  Be sure to read the delegates messages in this issue to learn about this exciting week. WVSSAMT provides financial assistance to help with expenses to members in good standing that meet all delegate criteria.  The national convention is a great way to network with peers all over the US and earn CE’s, along with becoming active in the organization.

National Medical Assistants Week is being held October 15-19, 2018.  This year’s theme is “Medical Assistant Week – at the Heart of Healthcare”. A great big “Thank you” to all the MAs for all that you do to keep our patients healthy!

This year’s recipient of the Mountaineer Excellence Award is Kitty Carr, MT.  Kitty has served WVSSAMT for many years in several capacities including Editor, Board Member, and currently as our Vice President.  Congratulations, Kitty!

Remember to use your professional credential plus (AMT) to share your AMT pride and achievement.

Don’t forget to record all of your CE activity in AMTrax.  This is a great way to show your employer your dedication to staying current in the profession.

I hope to see everyone at the Spring Educational and Business meeting on April 13 in Fairmont. We have a great professional organization and are constantly looking for new members to be involved.  If you would like to serve on a state committee, please contact me at wvssamt@gmail.com.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President.


Janet Crigler, MT(AMT)
WVSSAMT President
