In an attempt to modernize the association and remain relevant to our members NMOMA absolutely needs to upgrade its association management software. The software will allow the members to access their CME Certificates, create a profile making it easier to find specialist and easier for patients to search for a physician. It will have secure discussion pages, social media access, and keep track of the association financials. Looking towards the future, in just 6 short years we will have an additional 165 new Osteopathic Physicians and every year there after. We need this software but it cost $14,000 and will take 300 man hours to implement. We can not do good if we don't have the money. Please donate at least $60 to this cause.
