PRESIDENT'S MESSAGES | WINTER 2006
By: Jeannie Herriott
It is a privilege to be a part of this great organization, and I look forward to my final year on the Board with both excitement for what is yet to be, and certainly a little anxiety about fulfilling my commitment to you as your President. ? I will do my best in AADMRT's strive for excellence in service and education for its members, and I know this can happen with the help of terrific Board I was so pleased at our last Board meeting to be a part of this caring, motivated and dedicated group. ? And where would we be without the work of Merry as our secretary and Claudette as our treasurer! ? Thank you all!
To follow in the footsteps of past president Craig Dial makes me understand how it must feel to be next in line to skate after Michelle Qwan or Sasha Cohen! ? Craig has been an inspiration that has made me want to do more than I thought I could for our organization. ? He has helped our organization build into what we are today - an awesome resource for our educational needs and goals. ? would like to thank Craig for his years of unselfish commitment, and to show where our organiza-tion has been and where it is going with some of my favorite messages from Craig over the years:
"....We, as an organization also need to continue to stay updated in areas like computer technology, x-ray equipment, continuing education, and technical aspects. Our group has mega horsepower to get the job done, plenty of torque to go forward with new ideas, and you can be reassured your organization will take care of you, just like you have taken care of it over all these years."
"The AADMRT organization is also an investment...Let's look into what the AADMRT does for our dollar. ? First off, our group offers continuing education courses twice a year. ? We also have a tremendous resource through this quarterly news-letter. Another valuable piece of being a member is our web site...The AADMRT is also advertising your lab for you."
Lastly, a quote printed in 2003 but appropriate today:
"This organization is based on volunteers to function. Without the people to come forward and volunteer, we would not have an organization. ? I am proud of our entire group, and the fact that we as an organization can step up, help out, and happily assist when needed."
I am also proud of our organization, and with the help of the Board and other volunteers,?we will continue to get better and better.
