2017-2018 ASRT Board of Directors

Members of the Board of Directors were installed during the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 22-25, 2017, in Orlando, Florida.

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has a seven-member Board of Directors. The ASRT membership elects the president-elect, vice president and secretary-treasurer. After serving one year on the Board, the president-elect is elevated to the office of president and the current president then becomes chairman of the Board. The transitions happen at the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting in June each year. The remaining two members of the Board — speaker and vice speaker — are elected by the ASRT House of Delegates at its business meeting during the annual meeting.
