Thank You District 1 Chapters for all who planned and assisted with organizing the Fall Edu. Workshop this year. Success happens when smart, caring women and your chapter members together, build people and work for all of us to be the best Medical Assistants we can be.

I know it’s hard to think about the cold and snow, with all the pleasant weather we’ve been having. But it’s time to get your home, and your mind set for indoor activities, like we are at SWOCMA.. Join us Nov. 12th for a Hot Topic and Hot Chocolate.

Go to  for all upcoming events.
