Dear AMAC Members,
We’ve all reached the point in our lives where we recognize that life can turn on a dime. What was once considered normal can be upended and suddenly, we find ourselves coping with a “new normal”.
President Trump took office in January 2017 after 8 years of an Obama Administration that told us that stagnant economic growth and the evaporation of domestic manufacturing jobs were the new normal. President Trump campaigned on making America great again and once elected, he followed through by energizing the American economy with a tax cut and other actions that spurred an economic expansion that the so-called “experts” predicted could not happen. But it did.
The economy grew so strongly and quickly that, weeks before President Trump declared a national emergency over the COVID-19 virus, we made an editorial decision to document the growth by devoting many pages of the latest issue (March – April) of the AMAC Magazine to this subject.
As this latest issue of the AMAC Magazine is soon to be delivered to AMAC members throughout the country, we wanted you to know that these articles about the economy were submitted weeks in advance of the disclosure of the seriousness of the pandemic and the subsequent actions taken by President Trump and his Administration to contain the outbreak. Such is the nature of print journalism.
We’ve prioritized the posting of the most up-to-date information regarding the Chinese coronavirus on all digital AMAC media, including our website, www.amac.us, and ask that you visit the special section we’ve created there to serve as a repository of information on the virus. We also ask that you please renew your membership with AMAC online and submit any questions you have to [email protected], as we’ve reduced staffing in our call centers and other support colleagues in order to comply with federal and state directives.
We thank you for your consideration during this (temporary) new normal we’re all experiencing now and are inspired by the strong, courageous leadership President Trump and Vice President Pence have demonstrated during this crisis. Together, we will get through these challenging times and I’m confident we’ll all emerge better for having had to go through them.
Please take good care and be well!
CEO, Association of Mature American Citizens
