Hello Region 1,
The meeting in Danvers, Mass. will be held on Saturday November 3rd at Massachusetts General North Shore Center for Outpatient Care. As of now it will be good for at least 6 CEU’s; the Brochure is available on the website. Please feel free to print it off and share with all of your co-workers. Now, more exciting news: We have the potential for another meeting that may be set up in correlation with the PGA in New York City. The date will be December 8th, if all goes well. I will keep you all updated on the progress. If you have never been to New York City at Christmas time, this is your opportunity to do just that and make it a family event.
When you host a meeting, you are providing much needed CEU’s for your fellow Anesthesia Technicians and Technologists. If you would like to host a meeting or learn how, send me an email or call me. Keep checking on the ASATT website for information on all meetings. Please email topics that you would like to have presented at the meetings.
I want to apologize for not being able to attend the 29th Annual Educational Conference that was held in Las Vegas. I had a family emergency that could not be helped. I want to thank all of you that did attend for doing so. I would appreciate some feedback from those of you that attended the lectures at the National Meeting and the Regional Meeting. Please let me know what you want for lectures, what we can do to make these meetings better for you and any ideas how we can improve the attendance by other Anesthesia Technicians and Technologists and Vendors as well. What are we doing right and what can we improve on? Please send me an email and let me know what your thoughts are.
As the Chairperson of the Logo Committee, I am pleased to announce that we have some new and exciting merchandise for sale. We know that membership has been asking for more items, so we are going to do just that. Send me ideas on what you would like to see ASATT have for Logo items. Keep checking the store page! We tried something new this year, we took the design from the annual meeting pin and put it on a T-shirt to make a commemorative item. Again, any feedback will be greatly appreciated. We are going to be bringing more new items to the website soon.
We have a couple of changes to the ASATT membership.
- We are adding the option for a 2 year membership at the cost of $150.00 saving you $20 over the two year period. You will still have the option for the one year membership at $85 if you choose.
- Beginning this year we will not accept renewals or joins during the months of November and December, so make sure you renew you membership during the renewal process.
