MSMA turned out to be a great resource of experienced people willing to share advice and solutions with me and the educational seminars were amazing.
Within a year of becoming responsible for our mail operation, I was asked to bring it in-house. Just three months later we moved the complete operation across the medical center to a new location. Because of the friends I quickly found within MSMA, the knowledge I gained when I attended MAILCOM and the overall increase in my knowledge, expertise and perspectives, I was able to create a team and operation that exceeded expectations.
My next personal challenge was to earn a coveted CMDSM certification. After researching the qualifications, I built the courage to qualify and test. Thanks to the encouragement and assistance from MSMA, my continuing experience as a first rate manager, I became a CMDSM. Because of this certification, I was chosen from a field of seventy-five applicants for a new position within a new organization. I was the only CMDSM who applied.
Today I have friends all over the country to share information, ideas, and support as we encounter a new challenge or need assistance with new issues. Without MSMA, I would not have been able to grow my career or myself with the successes I have enjoyed.
