Thank you to Raymond Casabal from Mount Sinai Downtown for the picture above that he sent to me. Raymond’s picture is from New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Union Square and The Blavatnik and Chelsea Medical Center. They have four facilities in Downtown New York.

Happy Spring everyone, I certainly hope you had a celebration for Anesthesia Tech Week at your place of employment. If you have pictures and want to share them, send them to my email address which is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . My group had a luncheon for me and gave me a beautiful card with a gift card at my favorite restraint here in the big City of West Lebanon, NH. It was a beautiful meal and I got to celebrate it with my husband. Well the flowers are blooming and believe it or not, I just heard the forecast for SNOW!!! Really…. Come on Mother Nature, let the beautiful flowers continue to please us all with the fragrant smell of Spring flowers and rain.

I have some great news for you all. We are planning another Regional Meeting it will hopefully be this summer. I was thinking in July, however if you all want it at a different time, please send me an email to let me know what your preference is. I would like to get at least 5 speakers to make it worth everyone’s time. If you have a co- worker, Anesthesiologists, CRNA or AAAA that would like to volunteer their time for a lecture for our next Meeting, please give them my email address. The subjects will be specific to what everyone needs for Re-certification, so it will be beneficial. Even you can benefit for more CEU’s if you provide a one-hour lecture. Do not forget that you can attend ANY Regional Meetings, it does not have to be just from the Region which you reside. We also will be having the National Meeting as well.

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. It is only a little over 6 months away from now. Bring your cowboy hats and your get ready to network with a lot of amazing Anesthesia Technicians and Technologists.

Respectfully Submitted and Happy Spring
