Welcome Letter from the President of the Society

A Special Message From SABM’s President

December 22, 2017

Dear SABM Colleague:

First of all, I would like to express to you my sincere appreciation for your continued support of SABM
and our shared goals.

Secondly, I take this opportunity to update you on some current developments. In our commitment to
improve communication and increase reliability and as a demonstration of our renewed promise to
support each and every member of SABM, I am pleased to announce a change in the management of
the organization effective immediately.

Ardent Consulting LLC will be our Association Management Company with Richard Melseth serving as
Executive Director. Richard and Ardent are not new to these responsibilities, having served in these
positions successfully for SABM beginning in 2010 and through 2012. Richard is enlisting the services of
individuals who are intimately familiar with our unique organization, you our valued membership and
our collective goals and needs.

Another related adjustment is that the new main phone number for the SABM Management Office is
928-551-6400. The legal address of SABM will remain in New Jersey at 350 Engle Street, Englewood, NJ
07631. We are working diligently to ensure that all transitional activities are as seamless as possible.

Looking ahead to the future, plans are developing at this time for the SABM 2018 International Annual
Meeting in New York City. This conference is positioned to be a major event in the organization’s
history. We will keep you posted on this event and all other necessary information in connection with
the foregoing adjustment in management.

Sincerely Yours,

Letter Signature

Pierre R. Tibi M.D., President
For the SABM Board of Directors
