We have made it through one of the harshest winters in history here in the Greater New York area! Congratulations on that alone. It is time to get outdoors again and show off our dedication to fitness both personally and professionally. Let’s do it together!
As the new President of the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) Greater New York Regional Chapter (GNYRC), I invite you to join us for a year of new activity. Here are our 2014 plans:
Six Committees have already been resurrected; one that needs your expertise and professionalism immediately. Please help us make our chapter great!
We are sponsoring lunch at the 1st Human Performance Conference at Rutgers University in March for our Spring event. Let’s keep current and eat for free!
In April, we are attending the ACSM Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition in Atlanta with Past President, Neal Pire, who will huddle with our regional members.
At the National ACSM Annual Meeting in Orlando in May, we will be hosting special GNYRC member events for all our NJ/NY colleagues, i.e. YOU!
Summer outdoor social networking (old school) event and hopefully some volunteerism
Cash Awards for our Poster Presentation contest of fitness related research
Student Bowl Trivia contest - a trip to the 2015 National ACSM Annual Meeting in sunny San Diego is at stake!
2014 ACSM-GNYRC Annual Meeting/Conference at the Hospital for Special Surgery with first time Live Web Streaming
It is going to be a great year. COME JOIN US! I look forward to your membership and sharing all these wonderful activities with you.
Sincerely, John R. Martinez, P.T., D.P.T. President, A.C.S.M.- G.N.Y.R.C.
