As the leaves turn orange, red and yellow, and the pumpkins and scarecrows begin to appear, I hope your spirits are raised with love and laughter.
The VASSAMT Fall meeting was being planned for September, but then COVID raised its scary head and these plans had to be rethought for the health safety of all. A VASSAMT Board meeting will be held virtually on Oct. 2nd, 2021 at 10am.
All Board members and any state member is welcomed to call in to the number that will be publish on the Virginia AMT state web site.
We all hope that next year will be different and we may be allowed to meet in person for our state, district, and national meetings. Currently the National Educational and Business meeting is being scheduled for July18-22, 2022 for Scottsdale, AZ. The (MET) Magnolia meeting is scheduled for Louisville, KY. Sept 30- Oct. 1, 2021
I would like to thank Lori Bedford RMA, AHI (AMT) for her continued work with the RMA students and her involvement and support to the VASSAMT. She does a great job, and it does make a big difference for students.
The Dusty Rhodes Life Award will be delayed until our national meeting is in person. Colonel Robert Miller and Carol Miller, MT (AMT) Student award which was originated by VASSAMT can be applied for through the National AMT.
Meet and Greet sessions will be forthcoming. Learn more about your Board of Directors and Officers. Watch for the eblast to give you the date and time.
If you are a member of the Virginia State Society and have any interest in becoming an active member and helping with our meetings and state activities, please let me know. If you have questions, you are welcome to call me at 336 755 9265.
Stay safe and healthy!
