Our industry is at a critical juncture. As we move into a “full-fledged” profession with the various stakeholders (AFMTE, AMTA, ABMP, FSMTB, MTF, NCBTMB), actually attempting to play well with each other and work in harmony for the greater good of the profession, now is the time to make sure your voice is heard! Get involved with the various organizations. Express your concerns and your vision. It can be as simple as writing letters and posting comments on feedback forms, to more in-depth involvement such as volunteering to assist at events, joining committees, serving on boards or participating in task forces.

“You may think your actions are meaningless and that they won’t help, but that is no excuse, you must still act.”

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength but by perseverance.”
