Message from the President: New Year, New Initiatives

Happy New Year to all of our members and supporters!

AAMP accomplished many things in 2018, and I anticipate that 2019 will be even better. I’m very proud to be in the fortunate position to lead AAMP in this important work and in continuing the excellent work of previous presidents.

I’m looking forward to working with you all – as individuals, businesses, and experts. Together, we can work on the best solutions to the challenges we will undoubtedly face as an industry. During the past year, AAMP tirelessly continued its work advocating on behalf of the small processor in Washington, D.C. We will continue to voice our opinions in Washington in 2019, as well as various other initiatives that I’m excited to share with you.

2019 initiatives:

  • Building on the benefits of great value to members. This includes our annual convention, which keeps members up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry and provides numerous opportunities for networking.
  • Ensuring we continue to provide the right services to meet the needs of existing members and to attract and engage new members across the country.
  • Continue to build on the excellent work done by our committee members, especially those on the Convention Planning Committee. I encourage all of you to attend our 80th convention, July 25-27, in Mobile, Alabama.
  • Continue to build strong relationships with our industry partners, and work together to influence decision-making on issues of shared importance.

AAMP has an excellent future and the Board will work hard to ensure we remain the center of excellence and knowledge, for the industry and for our communities. AAMP is ably served by an enthusiastic and trusted staff, with new additions to help move our program agendas forward, while providing even better service to our members.

It is an honor and a pleasure to serve as your president, and I look forward to seeing you at the national convention in July. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me, or with AAMP staff, about any issue of interest to you.
