Happy Thanksgiving from Our Family to Yours...
During this season of thanks we are grateful for your support and dedication to physician families statewide.
Your membership is crucial to our mission and we thank you for choosing to give your time and talents to the NCMS Alliance.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
As the year comes to a close, we think back and consider how we can be helpful to our less fortunate community members, why not simplify our busy lives and join hands of like-minded friends by sending your $50 or more contribution to the NCMS Alliance. The contributions are tax-deductible and will be greatly appreciated.
The Sharing Card will raise funds to support various nonprofits across the state. The non-denominational holiday greeting card lists the names of participating donors and sends your holiday greetings to our members. Click here to donate online. If you would prefer to mail a check, click here for instructions. Happy Holidays!

The NCMSA Board thanks you for keeping our organization active not only by your valuable contribution but your continued support for our community. An organization that's relevant and valued by their members shares three common characters: tough-minded optimism, staying power and belief in a mission above all.
Our Alliance goals of yesterday remain valid today which are to support physicians and encourage fellowship among our members as well as to support each other in times of joy and adversity and reach out to potential members by offering programs and volunteer opportunities to all members.
Through our support of the N.C. Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and encouraging our members to participate in the local NCAFCC projects, we will continue our efforts to improve access to health care especially in rural areas of North Carolina.
This year exciting and informative programs will be offered to members via Zoom.
Watch your emails and our website for more information. Keep up with other members through Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NCMSAlliance to join our private Facebook group so we can communicate easily.
I look forward to connecting with you. Please renew or join with your new membership.
