About the CTSMA


The Connecticut Society of Medical Assistants is the state affiliate of the American Association of Medical Assistants. Our society is a two tier society consisting of an Executive Board and state society members. The Executive Board is elected annually by our voting members during our State Educational Conference held in the Spring. All active Connecticut members of the AAMA have a vote in our society.
