Spotlight on New York City

Many New Yorkers as well as Diplomates from New Jersey , Connecticut and Pennsylvania stopped by the booth to show their support and to also get the latest information from Director of Certification, Anne McChrystal, who was on hand to answer any and all questions.  Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Kory Ward-Cook and Board Chair Bryn Clark also attended the CAM Expo East conference.


Perhaps the most exciting event that took place simultaneously with the conference was our New York City Item Writing Workshop on March 3, where we had a record-breaking number of participants – over 75 -- who submitted items!  Deputy Director Laura Culver Edgar hosted the event and was pleased with the turn out and the number of items that were submitted.  We look forward to returning to this magnificent city soon. 

The NCCAOM Exhibit Booth's mission is to represent our Diplomates and the importance of NCCAOM certification to the public and the media.  If you have a venue that would be beneficial  for NCCAOM representation, please contact Mina Larson, Director of Communications and Marketing.
