News from the Tri-President, Lynn

What a fantastic September we have just experienced!  I hope you have enjoyed it and spent many hours outside in your gardens or other natural settings.  As we acknowledge the onset of October, we have many exciting opportunities ahead!

 As we celebrate with the AMAA and the AMA our 20th Anniversary of our initiative STOP AMERICA’S VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE or SAVE, events are happening all over the country and state sponsored by our Alliance members.  Schenectady County Alliance members have worked tirelessly to present a strong, many faceted message in an effort "to combat the epidemic of violence".  They are sending posters to active Medical Alliances across the state to share and display in your community.  You can receive these by emailing Cheryl Stier at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I am eagerly awaiting our Fall Leadership Conference October 18th and 19th at the glorious Glen Sanders Mansion in scenic Scotia, New York.  You all received invitations, so pack up your camera & bring another member or a prospective new

member and join us for our fabulous Fall Event!

My thanks go to Joan Cincotta (Onondaga) and Beth Perenyi (Broome) for attending our National Meeting in Chicago in June.  Joan, Beth and I serve as your “Presidential Team” this year until our Annual Meeting April 14-15 in Tarrytown, NY in conjunction with the MSSNY House of Delegates.  So save the date!   See you in Scotia!

Peace, Lynn
