APMA Staff Celebrates 100th Anniversary with Time Capsule A PMA staff culminated a year-long celebration of the association’s 100th Anniversary by filling and burying a time capsule on the grounds of APMA headquarters in Bethesda, MD, on November 27, 2012. This event gave staff the opportunity to be active participants in commemorating APMA’s lengthy and distinguished history. The association officially celebrated its centennial during the 2012 APMA Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) last August in Washington, DC. The time capsule idea was introduced by staff members as their way to note this milestone in the history of APMA. Staff spent several weeks thoughtfully selecting items to include in the time capsule, ultimately filling the container with articles representing both podiatric medicine and everyday American life in 2012. Items ranged from APMA’s bylaws and administrative procedures to coupons from McDonald’s and new car brochures. To the Retrievers of this Time Capsule: To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the American Podiatric Medical Association, staff members have gathered today, Tuesday, November 27, 2012, at the headquarters of the association for the purpose of dedicating this time capsule. Staff members have contributed the items included herein, which we believe reflect accurately upon our current efforts for the members of APMA and, as well, provide a small glimpse at the current societal, political, and cultural issues of our time. We hope and pray that this time capsule and its contents arrive safely into the future and can serve as an historic marker for those who retrieve it and view its contents. The staff of the American Podiatric Medical Association hereby bequeaths to you the contents of this time capsule. 22 APMA News February 2013 Staff contributors paid particular attention to conveying APMA’s processes and unique culture. To that end, they included comprehensive information detailing APMA processes as they pertain to membership (such as current dues rates) as well as the working environment (such as human resources information and pictures of the interior of the building). Several staff members composed personal notes to include in the capsule detailing their history and experiences with APMA. The time capsule dedication ceremony was originally scheduled for October 29 but was rescheduled due to Superstorm Staff spent several weeks thoughtfully selecting items to include in the time capsule, ultimately filling the container with articles representing both podiatric medicine and everyday American life in 2012. Sandy. Newspapers included in the time capsule featured the results of the 2012 presidential election, as well as details of the catastrophic effects of the historic storm. The final collection of items that would be buried in the time capsule was displayed in the APMA lobby in the days leading up to the ceremony. In dedicating the capsule, APMA Executive Director and CEO Glenn Gastwirth, DPM, and APMA Deputy Executive Director Jay Levrio, PhD, made formal remarks, including a recitation of a letter (at left), which was subsequently signed by all staff members and buried with the capsule. The time capsule itself was purchased from a company that manufactures such items with the intent that they will be buried for extended periods of time. The capsule was hermetically sealed, and groups of items within it further sealed in plastic containers meant to ensure their preservation. The interment of the time capsule took place the morning following the ceremony. Despite chilly and somewhat soggy conditions, numerous staff members ventured outside to participate in burying the commemorative receptacle. After carefully lowering the capsule into its resting place within the garden enclosure attached to the building’s entry vestibule, staff took turns covering the capsule with dirt. APMA’s time capsule has been registered officially with Oglethorpe University’s International Time Capsule Society
