PRESIDENT'S MESSAGES | WINTER 2008
By: Tony Giacobazzi
This past weekend we held our annual winter board meeting in Oakland, California. It is important that we recognize the vital contributions our Board and Council members give to our organization. They donate their precious time and talents and we all benefit greatly from their selfless volunteering. Our organization is as strong as it is today due to the energy and the professional passion of these people. As President, I feel honored to be part of this dedicated team. At the next opportunity, I hope you might consider expressing your gratitude to them for all they do for us.

This glimpse into some of our ongoing work should make us all realize how important AADMRT is to maintaining and enhancing the professionalism of our individual labs. By providing education, advertisement, and support, AADMRT continues to bring value to our businesses and our profession as a whole.
I would like to strongly encourage you to consider how you can volunteer alongside your peers to help continue our journey into excellence. It can be a truly exciting and gratifying ride. It has been for me!
