President's Page

Greetings and Welcome to the Montana Sleep Society website!

As the new president for the Montana Sleep Society, I would like to welcome you to our website! It is
full of information, including what this Society is about, membership, upcoming conference dates; we
also have information regarding a scholarship fund that will provide funding for new sleep technologists
who have recently entered into the sleep medicine field to attend our conference.

As many of you aware, we recently held our 2023 MSS conference in Billings, Montana. I would like to
first thank our speakers, without them, there would be no conference. I would also like to thank
everyone who attended this year. Your reviews overall praised the conference. There were many
suggestions for the next conference and these will be taken into consideration. Our vendors presence
was a great success and we thank them for their participation. I would also like to add that the Montana
Sleep Society has endorsed the AASM's position on permanent standard time. Members at this year’s
meeting had a chance to express their opinion. This was subsequently voted upon and members
overwhelmingly agreed to support this position to remain permanently in standard time. The AASM has
published their position statement on the JCSM website.

We will continue to plan future conferences, with the upcoming one scheduled for September 26 and
27, 2024. We expect it to be just as energetic and educational as the 2023 conference!

In closing, I look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s conference and I thank everyone for their
membership. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please contact us through our society
email which can be found on the website. And, if you are interested and are an energetic and
outgoing person and would like to contribute your knowledge to the Montana Sleep Society, we would
welcome you as a volunteer or if you would like to serve as a board member we would certainly love to
hear from you. Thank you.
