The AAMA installs Sandra W. Williams, CMA (AAMA), as 2021-2023 Trustee

The American Association of Medical Assistants® installed Sandra W. Williams, CMA (AAMA), as a 2021-2023 AAMA Trustee in Houston, Texas, at the 65th AAMA Annual Conference. In this capacity, Williams, a resident of Duncan, South Carolina, represents medical assistants and CMAs (AAMA)® across the nation.
Medical assisting is one of the nation’s careers growing much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical assistants work in outpatient healthcare settings. Employers are seeking and recruiting these allied health professionals because of their uniquely diverse clinical and administrative patient-centered training.
“It is an honor to serve the association and profession during this time of great change in the healthcare environment,” says Williams. “The CMA (AAMA) plays an integral role on the healthcare delivery team because of their unique blend of knowledge, competence and versatility.”
Williams has worked as an administrative medical assistant from 1987 to 2016. The final 23 years of her career, she worked at Family Medicine-Mountain View in Greer, South Carolina. Williams is currently working as a part-time caregiver for Comfort Keepers of Spartanburg, South Carolina. She is currently president of the Spartanburg chapter of the AAMA and secretary of the South Carolina Society of Medical Assistants. She has also served as a past president for the South Carolina Society of Medical Assistants. Williams served on the Continuing Education Board of the AAMA from 2014 to 2017. In her role as an AAMA Trustee, she will also chair the Membership Development Strategy Team and serve on the Strategic Issues Planning Committee, Career Professional Development Committee and Maxine Williams Scholarship Committee.
The Certified Medical Assistant (AAMA)® — or CMA (AAMA) — credential represents a medical assistant who has been credentialed through the Certifying Board of the AAMA. The Certifying Board was awarded accreditation by the International Accreditation Service under ISO/IEC Standard 17024:2012, the global benchmark for personnel certification bodies, thus distinguishing the CMA (AAMA) from all other medical assisting certifications.
Certification status is a matter of public record and may be released. Every day the AAMA responds to more than 100 employer requests for CMA (AAMA) certification verification — for both current and potential employees.
The American Association of Medical Assistants®, the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the medical assisting profession, was established in 1956 and serves the interests of more than 92,000 medical assisting professionals. The American Association of Medical Assistants provides quality resources and educational opportunities for medical assistants by offering certification, advocacy for quality patient-centered healthcare, credential acknowledgment and scope-of-practice protection.
