A Message from the President
In my installation address last year I talked about these being challenging times.Asked how many times we had heard that and that it almost seemed chaotic at times. I never in my wildest dreams saw a pandemic in our future. And here we are right in the middle of one. This has slowed us down for the last three months but has not stopped us.
As physician families and Medical Society Alliance members, we share a common mission—“to improve the health and well-being of our communities”. That now becomes more important than ever before, while living in the middle of a pandemic. The way we do things will obviously be much different until our state opens completely and even then, we will probably have a new normal.
But our mission does not change, and my theme will continue to be REIGNITE. We got a start on that this year and we will continue to carry on and move forward. We may have to have more online programming, rather than a large gathering, have more Zoom meetings, not just the board but with all our members.
Thinking outside of the box will become mandatory.
Despite the difficulties facing our organization, we have much to offer I look forward to working with each of you to re-ignite the mission of the Alliance. We can do this, and we will survive and thrive.
I would also like to recognize Rachael Kunish, Cabarrus County, as the AMAA Secretary for the 2020-21 AMA Alliance year. Congratulations Rachael.
