The purpose of the ASRT election is to select the ASRT Board of Directors and House of Delegates chapter representatives. Dedicated ASRT members have volunteered to run for these positions. Each candidate must meet specific criteria and submit an application during the nomination period to be eligible to run for office. You are eligible to vote in the ASRT election if you were an ASRT member on or before the last business day in December before the election.
Board of Directors
Once elected, these volunteers help lead the ASRT, set direction for the profession and commit a lot of time and energy on behalf of the radiologic science community. Board members, also called national officers, attend multiple meetings throughout the year to discuss potential partnerships and advances in the profession and to stay current on emerging technologies and practice issues. Those elected in 2017 will take office in June 2017.
House of Delegates
Chapter delegates also volunteer their time. The delegates for each of the 15 chapters provide a direct voice to the ASRT on behalf of their specialty areas. Every year, these representatives gather at the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting to review motions, attend chapter meetings and participate in discussions that shape the ASRT and the radiologic technology profession. Throughout the year, they also act as expert resources on behalf of the profession.
ASRT has established guidelines regarding campaign activities by or on behalf of candidates to make the elections as fair as possible for all candidates.
