The New Hampshire State Society of Medical Assistants is an organization dedicated to the education, promotion and support of medical assistants. The organization is over 50 years old and has served to promote the profession and support patient care in New Hampshire.
The AAMA, our parent organization, is the backbone the NHSMA was built upon. The CMA (AAMA) is promoted as the "gold standard" of the medical assistant world. We do, however, welcome all medical assistants into our organization. We have members from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and, of course, New Hampshire. There are RMA (AMT)'s, CCMA's, and even a few LPN's in the NHSMA. Many of our associate members are educators, office managers and coders.
Monthly board meetings are held to discuss the business of the NHSMA. All members are invited to these meetings. Everyone's opinion matters.
Thanks to all that attended this event, it was a great morning and our thanks go out to Exeter Hospital and Core Physicians for being such generous hosts.
The CEU's from this are event are in the processing stage and our expectation is that they may not show on your accounts for at least another 8 weeks. this is a very busy time for National but we will continue to monitor the situation.
Check out the News section for:
The letter from the legal counsel of the AAMA on the Medical Technicians Registration Bill.

Link to the reclassification of hydrocodone
New job posting in Employment Opportunities
Thanks to all that attended. A great day of information and networking.
The NHSMA board held a meeting last week to go over the feedback from the conference among other things. Although most of the feedback was positive there are some areas where we can make improvement. Published times is an area where we need to make sure all documents are in alignment and this will be corrected for the next event. Thank you for your comments on the speakers and subjects, these have been noted and will be considered in future planning.
We really appreciate your suggestions for future presentations and we are working on getting speakers for immunization, narcotics, robotic surgery and stress management to name a few for the April Conference.
Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any other comments or suggestions.
Be aware that credit for the CEU's earned will take at least 6-8 weeks to be posted to the AAMA site.
Watch this space! Questions will be posted soon to win free days for the April Conference
Please be aware if you answer in a POST this will be viewed by all who look at the web-site. If you wish to contact the web-site or member of the Board in private, use the Contact Us page or e-mail directly.
Thank-you, Linda Prince, CMA(AAMA), COA NHSMA

There seems to be a huge issue at national right now with getting the CEU's posted. The spring CEU's have been sent twice but have been posted yet.
I have been in touch with the AAMA and am waiting for a date that these will be posted. Be assured we are working on this and expect them to be posted very soon.
Some members have had issues with past CEU's not getting posted. Please check to be sure all your CEU's are on your transcript. E-mail or contact through the web-page if you are missing any. I will need to go through the attendance sheets and CEU sheets that were handed in at each session to show proof you were there. This takes time and research. The sooner I am notified that sooner this can be fixed.
