Where are all the young APMA members?

Where are all the young APMA members?

Barry writes his latest editorial in Podiatry Management Magazine  bemoaning the lack of enthusiasm for APMA membership among younger podiatrists.
Ironically enough, Barry calls for the younger podiatrists to rethink their position.
Delusional……………
Barry, you are a representation and embodiment of why young podiatrists dislike the APMA. The very fact that you call for a change in thinking by younger podiatrists speaks to the problem at hand.
Outrageous Shoe of the Day ?  Surveys on what brand toilet paper pods use in their office bathrooms ?  Does your office have a fax machine ?  Photo ops of and ads for crooks and criminals ?  An abusive, self serving APMA board with zero level of intellectual function ?   APMA affiliates selling therapies and products bordering on quackery ? A useless Executive Director ?
And you do not understand why you and your APMA and affiliate propaganda publications are seen as part of the problem ?
The APMA is not worthy of any membership by right thinking individuals. You are speaking to an empty room.  Younger podiatrists know what they see and read. They witness the failure of the APMA to provide any true educational leadership. They grow tired of useless national and regional meetings. They are victims of the reality of everyday practice, knowing that with all the talk APMA and the so called Executive Director accomplish little of substance to aid them.
So Barry, count your money and blessings. It’s been a good ride for you and for the many APMA hucksters and shysters. But, like the circus, attendance and interest is declining with the aging podiatrist population.  It’s a new age Barry. Clowns, dancing bears, high wire acts, and bearded ladies just aren’t appealing to the youngsters anymore. Save the APMA act for the podiatrist rest home. Because that’s where all the APMA future members will be found.

Foot dentist today has a very interesting article regarding strategies on shoe laces. Yes, shoe laces, very cerebral. This was critical to DP WTFS. It’s written by a young woman eager beaver—doesn’t look obese. Her them roar and tick that ‘diversity’ box. Womyns foot club. Go team!

Hey “Legit”, when you mentioned the WOMEN’S foot club you reminded me of the latest issue of “FOOT TECHNICIAN TODAY” where a Left Wing, Liberal, Women’s Rights podi-aTIRX whined that WOMEN AREN’T GETTING PAID EQUAL TO MEN and then goes into exquisite detail about the US women soccer team and how they are SO BRAVE standing up for women. Holy S., is this SICK FOOT TECNICIAN in this universe? Do ANY OF YOU KNOW OF AN EXAMPLE WHERE AN INSURANCE COMPANY ASKS THE SEX OF THE PROVIDER AND PAYS THEM LESS IF THEY HAVE A VAGINA?!! If she wants equality,… Read more »

GREAT POST SETH!!!! Does your office have a couch? What car should you drive to impress customers? Boxers or briefs, or commando? Old larry doesn’t know what to do…again. It’s a propaganda “news” call to keep paying those dues and fees, and drum up young foot soldiers to sign on up for that nationalistic club and keep the circus going town to town like carnies . AYE Mattie walk the ritter and pay those dues-help the many bad men enjoy first class, lux hotels, dinners in that blue sky views. Those stupedents (EDDY/CADDY POD) should read the 990s on that… Read more »

ToeLegit…Spot on—Remember, keeping up with the ‘other’ professions, the P has to ’embrace’ diversity—How freaking off base is that? Just amp up the education, accept competent qualified kids, and that horse? That stinking horse is ready for the glue factory—P-ville has ridden that pony to finish line. Talk about the Kenschmucky Derby…How can these cats be so wrong, so wowee wowee they deflect the major component of the deal to fields that’ve integrated these notions and concepts and PC years and years ago—Sort of shows you can always count on the P to be ten steps behind, and playing catchup—KETCHUP,… Read more »

Yeah, Barry. You’ve more than had your run without having to touch a foot. You actually got away with it. Like Seth says, save it for the podiatry nursing home.

Why would the young join the old chiropody APMA. They are all lower extremity reconstructive surgeons, they join the ACFAS . Shows you how dysfunctional Podiatry is. But the APMA has a new logo !!!! Has the PAs and NPs running scared.

Yeh right, new logo. “apma” Are you kidding me ! Does the AAOS and the AOFAS know what the “apma” is.
Take those hearing aids out of your ear, Mr. Christina. Do you hear me now ? Or are you buried in the same bed as Jeffrey Lehrman ?

Good one: Join…Are you kidding me? (interalia-don’t know who these folks other other than the NO CHANGE generations) – They used to say you can use Coca Cola to clean toilets, rot guts, and put ice on it. This P thing is the ‘store brand’ soda—Freakin’ rookies

Barry really should throw in the towel at this stage of the game. He is totally out of touch with reality. And Barry does not know what he does not know. He only knows how to keep his LIPS BROWN by servicing the executive director and APMA BOD where the sun does not shine.
