What an incredible year! Never would I ever think about our state society meetings and the Annual Meeting being cancelled!! I miss my AMT friends. I feel disheveled, sometimes anxious but I also know that I am not alone. My thoughts and prayers are with many of my friends and family members that are frontline workers in this pandemic. My thoughts and prayers are for you, the laboratorian as you are reading this now. Know that you are doing the most important job of your life and you are appreciated.
I want to let you know that VASSAMT and NCSSAMT is still planning a joint meeting in the Spring of 2021. This is still in the planning stages pending restrictions for such events.
Another event that I am really looking forward to is the National AMT Meeting to be held in Norfolk, VA!! What an honor to host this meeting. Maybe by next summer, we will be back on track!
VASSAMT is planning a fall Board Meeting only via GoToMeeting.
I want to give a big “Thank-You” to Nancy Barrow who has served Virginia State Society and AMT National Board for many years. She has decided to move to Nevada to be near her family. She will certainly be greatly missed by the Virginia Board. I want to thank her for the many years serving as President and Secretary for the VASSAMT. Nancy has been a very hard worker in the Virginia society. We wish you the very best Nancy and thank you again!
Let’s keep working together for the benefit of all!
