A Message from the President...
Happy Spring OSSMA team!
The annual conference of the OSSMA was a great success thanks to the committee and
members of the West Central chapter. Immediate past-president Aimee Quinn, CMA(AAMA) was congratulated for her leadership for 2022-2023. Now, I have the privilege as your newly installed president to continue moving our chapters and organization forward.
We had a beautiful Installation ceremony conducted by Diane Morlock, CMA (AAMA) to install our newly elected officers at the 2023 OSSMA State conference.
Vice President: Julie Fogt, CMA(AAMA) – West Central
Secretary: Diana Rogers, CMA(AAMA) – Tri County
Treasurer: Lora Wilson, CMA(AAMA) – Montgomery County
Amy McMasters, CMA (AAMA) Speaker- Northwest Ohio
Laura Mizicko, CMA (AAMA) Vice Speaker-Tri County
Immediate Past President- Aimee Quinn- West Central
During the installation Ceremony the theme was our Medical Assistant Creed, which was used to help the officers understand their role in keeping the OSSMA organization a strong structure. Officers, chapters and members are a significant part of the framework of the OSSMA.
The creed was chosen because as Medical Assistants, as well as all our members and non-members, we all have a creed to live by and uphold which is faith, family, hard work and our professions.
As elected officers from you our OSSMA society, we have pledged with you and for you, to be your voice to move this organization forward by bringing in new Medical Assistants. We all can do this by informing them of our meetings, lend support for obtaining certification, and by letting our enthusiasm become contagious….this is ALL our duty.
As with the spring, which is a new beginning, let’s plant our seeds, water it by welcoming someone new into our meetings, let the sun rays be our off shoot of knowledge to become the sturdy stem, and watch each other and each chapter grow like the petals, which are the characteristics of our creed.
So, in closing, let’s build our society to its fullest potential by collaborative change with ideas,communicating and caring individuals that those we welcome into our meetings, will not want to stay away, due to our infectious outpouring of professionalism, service, confidence, dedication, loyalty, and ethics, which we are ALL strengthened by our compassion, courage, and faith.
Thank you to my mentors, my chapter, and the OSSMA society for electing me to serve as your voice and your president. Please reach out with your suggestions and questions so we can blossom with new members, informative chapter meetings and a growing state society of Medical Assistants.
