A New Chapter for CSA
By Linda Hertzberg, M.D.

The CSA is pleased to announce its new affiliation with Advocacy & Management Group (AMG) for business operations and management.  AMG brings a wealth of experience in management services for professional groups and has worked with the California Society of Pathologists and California Radiological Society for a number of years.  Our new management team, headed by David Butler, has been working hard for the past week to ease this transition for our members and make it as seamless as possible.  Information about the personnel assigned to the CSA and how to contact AMG or a specific individual at AMG is provided below.  We look forward to a long, successful, and productive relationship.
