Happy New Year’s everyone!! Let’s hope and pray that this year will be a much healthier year.  Well I have some great news……. We are having our very first Virtual Region 1 Meeting on February 27th. I have at the least three speakers and hoping for at least one more. If everything goes according to plan, it will be from 9 am- 1 pm and you will earn up to 4 CEU’s, maybe even more. Stay tuned for more details on our website. I will have ASATT Headquarters send out an email as soon as we have it all confirmed. If you know of anyone that would like to volunteer their time for a 1-hour lecture, please ask them to send me an email. If we end up with more speakers then we can plan for another Region 1 Meeting for April. Ideally, I would love to do another live meeting, however, due to the Pandemic, that is impossible at this time. So, for the time being, we will make lemonade out of the lemons that we are being handed. 

I know there are quite a few of you that have had some concerns regarding the new Membership fees and what it entails. Please be patient with everyone and do not panic, I know easier said than done. The membership for years has asked for more benefits to the Membership. The last time the membership fees were increased was YEARS ago. In order to give the membership more benefits, it will cost more. If you look at the Membership Model Benefits paper it is very clear as to why this is such a good deal for you (as the member) and for ASATT so we can give you more for your money.

2 year membership Includes:

2 Webinars, 16 CEU Quiz’s, 2 Webinars for 8 CEU’s ea., 25% Discount on the National Meeting, 70% discount on Recertification.  For a total Savings of $675.00  That is an amazing deal. I love to save money and this day and age. Any savings that I can get you bet I will jump on to this SALE!!!!

This is just the beginning of the savings there is the 1year membership or you can do monthly. After all we are a professional Organization trying to put our members first and thinking of how we can save you money and give you what you want. Please bear with us while we work through all the details. If you would like to volunteer to be on a committee, email Greg Farmer or myself and we can get you onto one of the Committees.

SAVE THE DATE: Do not forget to start making plans for next year’s Annual Meeting in Fort Worth, Texas September 23-25th, 2021 I would almost guarantee that you will not be disappointed with this meeting. It is going to be one of the biggest ASATT Meetings. You can expect updates as time goes along.

If Region 1 Members would like to do an appreciation celebration at the National Meeting, I think it would be fun for all of us to get together. Maybe a dinner somewhere or go to an acceptable place of fun for all of us. Just a thought. Think about it and if you are going to the National Meeting this year, email me and we can try to put something together. After this last year, we all deserve a little fun.
