AMPED Association Management has been selected by the American Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants (AAAA®) to manage their operations.
AAAA, the national organization dedicated to the ethical advancement of the Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant (CAA) profession, provides advocacy and promotion of the Anesthesia Care Team in order to achieve the highest level of excellence in patient care.
As its partner, AMPED will bring extensive association experience and provide full management services, including leadership, strategic planning, governance, advocacy, membership development, meeting planning, financial management, and communications.
AMPED’s Michael Battaglia will serve as AAAA’s Executive Director, based in Washington, D.C.
“We are thrilled to work with AAAA to better serve the profession and help tell a more compelling story about why anesthesiologist assistants are important members of the Anesthesia Care Team,” Battaglia said. “AMPED’s culture, technology and operational efficiency are strengths that we see as the perfect complement to this growing association. We look forward to working closely with AAAA members and volunteers to help CAAs realize their full professional potential.”
AAAA President Laura K. Knoblauch, CAA, MMHSc, MBA-HA, agrees.
“AAAA is extremely excited for our new partnership with AMPED,” she says. “By strongly assisting us in our future goals, AMPED will help us with opportunities for substantial organizational growth and increased legislative activity, all while exercising their expertise in medical association management. The Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant profession is on a steep trajectory of growth and it is an exciting time for the profession!“
