What it means to be a Fellow

By now most of you have figured out that I am not much of a blogger.  However, tonight I am compelled to blog.  I got a call from Brian Downey who needed a piece of information, tonight!  And he needed it from someone in a midwest state. To which I said, "Brian, it's after 7pm."  Well, you know where this is going.  I shot an email out to a Fellow in the midwest (without her permission she will remain nameless) and asked for an immediate phone call. My phone rang two minutes later.

NEW AAML CHAPTERS

I want to take this opportunity to welcome two new charter chapters to the AAML: The Board of Governors approved the petitions of the Central States chapter (consisting of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota) and the Northeast States chapter (consisting of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont). Although every chapter, chartered or not, is a vital part of the AAML, by organizing into a charter chapter, fellows from smaller states are able to have a greater participation in the formation of AAML policies.

Mid Year Meeting - Cancun

All - the question recently arose as to whether Mexico is one of those countries, as was Costa Rica, where they may opt to not let you enter if your passport is due to expire in less than six months.  If this is the case for your passport, you may want to be safe and apply for a new one now.
