So, we made it through the first-ever member orientation without any casualties. It was a crazy morning, but I think the event (and the fact that there was one) was great! I want to thank everyone in attendace; you made it all worth-while. I hope that you were able to get some valuable information from the event, but if it left you with questions or wanting more, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the board members at your convenience. We are here to serve you!

I do hope that you will take full advantage of your membership and all the benefits it offers you. I also encourage you to maximize your membership by volunteering, joining a committee or starting one of your own.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and working with you to get the AMA New Orleans to everything you need it to be. You may email any AMA-related stuff to me at or feel free to contact me directly just to chat. I want to help you any way that I can. My personal email address is, and my cell phone number is 504-908-2721. Here’s to a great year!
