Hello Region 2
What’s been happening in Region 2:
I have been putting together a couple of meetings for our region. One will be held in April 2020 in Michigan at Wayne County Community College with Marc more details will post shortly. The other one will occur at the ASA in Washington, DC on October 3rd and 4th, 2020 with Joshua’s help. This meeting will only be open to the first 125 members that sign up. So if you’re interested in attending this one please don’t wait till the last minute because registration will close when we have reached that number. Look for details and posting soon to hit the ASATT website. I had great feedback from our members at the Orlando conference with many members wanting to hold a regional meeting, so please contact me if you are still interested in holding a meeting. Holding a Regional Meeting, is a lot of work but not hard at all!! Remember we all need CE’s so let’s work together as a team with promoting our profession!
We have some fantastic news that the BOD decided that Anesthesia Tech day will now be ANESTHESIA TECH WEEK!!! The week will be from 3/29 -4/4 in 2020 then the last week of March in the coming years. We all agreed that a day wasn’t enough to be recognized for all that we do!!
Also ASATT President Greg has already got our next National Educational Conference lined up. So start making plans to attend our 2020 Annual Conference that will be held in Fort Worth Texas at the Hilton on September 10th, 11th and 12th. Before you know it September will be here. I hear there are a lot of fun activities and sites to go do and see. Hope to see you there.
More exciting news..... The Sensor will be going through a rebranding and update and coming back shortly. We also will have the Science and Technology Article, with each article, will be a corresponding quiz which you can take to earn continuing education credits.
Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!!
