I am honored to be entrusted with the role of President for the Illinois Society of Medical Assistants (ISMA). I look forward to meeting more of our members and attending Chapter meetings when possible.
It is my hope that we continue to move the ISMA into the future. To expand on virtual
meetings and educational sessions. To expand the ways in which members can
purchase registrations for educational sessions. To stoke the flames for members, new and old, who are excited about the organization and what it means to be a member.
I would like to continue the monthly Executive Board meetings via Zoom, except when scheduled to meet in person. My intent is to attend the committee meetings for which I am an ex officio member. I believe it is important to truly understand how each committee works.
I would like to see more members join a committee. It would give a fresh perspective, as well as help the ISMA understand the wants and needs of the next generation of CMAs joining the workforce.
I will do my utmost to be available to anyone who may have questions or concerns
regarding the ISMA, AAMA or your Chapter. If I am unable to directly answer the
question or concern, I will find the answer.
I look forward to an exciting and productive term and sincerely hope I will do the position of Presidency justice.
Kelly A. Charland, CMA (AAMA)
