At our Awards Ceremony, Nick Gowen, Partner, Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella, P.C. congratulated the 48 National Championship teams and offered his words of wisdom and advice to the community.

Thank you to everyone who competed in AMTA in 2024. This was yet another unprecedented season and we are so glad that we were able to travel from Regionals to Chicago with you. We look forward to ​seeing you all in 2024 on the road to AMTA's 40th National Championship Tournament. Best wishes for the remainder of the spring semester and we look forward to being in touch this summer and to seeing you all in the fall!
