Hello Pennsylvania Radiologic Science Professionals and other friends,
The time is drawing near for our annual conference. The conference this year will be held in Allentown, Pennsylvania at the Holiday Inn. (1-610-433-2221). We are planning to have a glorious time; we have 8 speakers and nine continuing education (CE) credits that have been approved by the ASRT. The speakers will be traveling from as far west as Oregon and as far east as Maryland. This is a great way to get your CE credits and to see old friends and make new ones.
There are opportunities for the students to participate as well. There will be a poster competition, the Student Techni-bowl and an opportunity for students to apply to be a student mentor and shadow a board member. These are great opportunities for students to network and see what goes on during the meeting. The details for each of the student opportunities is available on the psrtonline.org website.
This year has been exciting for me and I grateful for the opportunity to serve as the PSRT president. I am sure that whomever you elect as your president will do a fine job and continue to respond to the needs of the Pennsylvania radiologic community. This is the time when we should all ban together to make our Society strong and help it continue to grow. The growth and change all starts with you. There is room for everyone who wishes to help out in any way, such as running for an office or becoming a committee member. I know that we as Radiological Science Professional can do and accomplish anything we set our minds on.
I would like to thank all the committees and board members for all the work they have done throughout the year. Without the hard work of these individuals, this would have been an impossible task to achieve. In conclusion I like to say I am proud to be a Radiological Technologist and to have served on the Board of Directors of the PSRT. I will continue to be involved with the PSRT abd the profession as a whole for a long time to come.
I hope to see all of you at the annual PSRT conference. Please come and enjoy the other Radiologic Science Professionals and students from across this great state of Pennsylvania.
