  • Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting Update

    With COVID-19 continuing to circulate in communities throughout the country and ongoing preventive measures still encouraged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists has made the decision to hold the 2021 Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 17-20, as a virtual event.

    This was not an easy decision as the ASRT Board of Directors and staff were looking forward to hosting delegates, speakers, members and distinguished guests in Reno, Nevada, this summer. The Board and staff carefully investigated a variety of options to host the meeting; however, with ongoing obstacles to travel, social distancing, crowd avoidance directives, and ASRT’s desire to keep attendees and staff safe, an in-person meeting is not possible this year.

    ASRT is currently planning to host a one-day Educational Symposium and full annual governance meeting. Using an online meeting platform, the Society is working to ensure that delegates and staff successfully complete the business of the House of Delegates, honor ASRT’s 2020 and 2021 Fellows and Life Members and host the installation of officers’ event to seat the 2021-2022 ASRT Board of Directors.

    The Educational Symposium on June 17 will feature six courses presented by some of the premier experts in the radiologic technology profession. Here’s a sample of the topics: ASRT’s 100-year history presented by ASRT CEO and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASAE, FASRT, CAE; an update on patient shielding presented by ASRT Board members Daniel DeMaio, M.Ed., R.T.(R)(CT), Kristi G. Moore, Ph.D., R.T.(R)(CT), and Brandon A. Smith, M.B.A., M.S.R.S., R.T.(R)(VI), CIIP; and an overview of best practices in digital radiography presented by Donna L. Long, M.S.M., R.T.(R)(M)(QM), FASRT. You won’t want to miss it!

    Thank you ASRT members, for your time and patience as the Society pivots toward planning for a successful virtual meeting. The ASRT Board and staff are grateful for your commitment to ASRT and the profession. ASRT will provide more information about the virtual Symposium and annual meeting as it becomes available.
