Our Spring Meeting in Federal Way was well attended. There were several instructors and faculty members in attendance from the Pima Medical Institutes, Renton and Seattle. The Board decided to help sponsor some instructors (2) and students (4) to attend the National Convention in Kansas City to partake in the Student Bowl. Good luck to both schools.
I appointed a new Editor-Linda Wilkins and DJ Barnhart was elected as our new Treasurer. We have a large delegation going to this year’s National Convention, having a lot of first time attendees and several returning members. I hope they enjoy the convention and will think about attending next year in Washington D.C.
Pima Institute is having a fundraiser (clothing drive) to help with the American Kidney Fund this month. Thank you, Pima Renton, for stepping up and getting NWSSAMT task accomplished for the year. Hopefully we can come up with better membership involvement for next year. Bring your ideas to our next Business meeting in October.
The next Board/Business meeting will be in Lynnwood, WA in October at the NWMLS (18-21 Oct). It appears that Saturday is a better time to have our meetings instead of Friday evening. I will let you know when and what time in my next message.
