ASRT Leaders Connection: Governance, Government Relations, Affiliate Update
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 EVERYONE!!
The new year offers a great opportunity to embrace change and set goals for the coming year. Setting goals or offering changes for the business of our profession is done in the form of a motion. Motions will be reviewed and discussed prior to the final vote in the House of Delegates at our annual conference in June. This issue is full of information to keep all of the ASRT leaders connected as we enter another year.
