Happy Spring, the flowers will be blooming soon, even though we still have snow in the forecast. I keep thinking it is only a couple weeks away from new life in all the greenery. I hope you all take some time to enjoy the amazingly fresh smells of spring in the air. Happy Anesthesia Tech Week!! We all deserve a pat on the back if not more than that. It is our week to shine bright, we are the stars of the OR’s or whatever setting you work in. It is right around the corner so put on your biggest smiles and be brightest star in your work setting. For those of you that do celebrate, please send any pictures that are taken to me or even just a shout out to whomever else helps you celebrate.

ASATT has a lot of great things to report. First is the Q1 Webinar that will be happening on Saturday March 27th, Region 6 Director (Otoniel Castillo) are going to be the hosts. I have two speakers lined up, the first one is John Mcnemar, CRNA, DNAP his lecture is going to be on NORA, the second one is Jennifer G. Keller, MD, her lecture is going to be on “Ten things I wished I known (about Anesthesia and the practice of the Anesthesia Techs).” Region 6 is providing 2 Speakers who are Otoniel Castillo and Sara Paraspolo. I hope as many of you can attend will do so, it is an inexpensive way to earn some CEU’s. You will have the opportunity to earn up to 4 CEU’s. Hope to see you on the roster for the meeting.

Watch for the registration for the national meeting for this year. We will be having so much fun. Cannot wait to see you all. Stay safe and healthy, wear your masks by setting an example of what is best for all of us.

Respectfully Submitted and Happy Spring!
