Hello Region 2
With summer ending and the children settling back into school I hope you had a chance to make some time for a well deserved vacation with your family and friends making wonderful memories!!
Remember to sign up for you to attend our 30th Anniversary Educational Conference in October. There’s still time to plan to join us in Orlando Florida. We are still offering the early bird special to make it affordable to attend!! So make sure you go to the ASATT website for more details.
2019 ASATT Annual Conference
Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive
There is so many amazing things to see and do in Florida that you can turn this into a family vacation at the same time. I Hope you have a chance to come have fun and at the same time earn you some CE’s. These conferences are always fun to attend!
I am pleased to announce the Region 2 Educational Award for 2019. I am very excited that I got to pick 2 members this year. Both of these individuals deserve this award! That being said please put your hands together and congratulate Jessica and Lauren from UPMC Hospital!! They have worked very hard through the years to make sure we hold a conference to earn our CE’s!! Thank you both for all your hard work!!
Remember if anyone would like to hold a region 2 meeting please contact me so we can discuss the details. It has great perks and you can earn free CE’s. We are making the push for us to be recognized as an Advanced Practice Allied Health Profession. We really need that professional attitude, it starts with US. Last… What we’re doing for our profession, “It’s not easy, but it’s not hard.”Remember we all need CE’s so let’s work together as a team with promoting our profession!
We are still working out details on the logo committee but I am very excited to see what the members think of our new products!
Membership: We now have the option for a 2-year membership at the cost of $150.00 that is saving you $20.00 over the two-year period. You will still have the option for the 1-year membership at $85.00. One of the perks to being a member is that any conference that is given by ASATT is downloaded to your profile and makes it much easier when you’re up for re-certification.
Recertification: For those who are due to recertify this year, the recertification period will begin November 1st, and we will be sending out an email reminder with instructions on recertifying. As in the past, if you have all your CE’s on file in the database you will be able to recertify online by logging into the website and going to your member profile. You will only be able to log into the site if your membership is active. So if your membership has expired and you want to recertify at the member rate make sure to renew your membership by the end of October. For those who have to submit CE’s with your recertification the preferred method will be to upload your documents online. By choosing this method you will also be able to pay online as well. Also note starting this year we will not be accepting recertification applications via fax.
I hope to see you in Florida !!
