ASRT Leaders Connection: Governance, Government Relations, Affiliate Update
Fall 2016 Leaders Connection Introduction
Welcome to the Leaders Connection. Do you ever feel either the hours in the days are shorter or the number of days in the month have decreased? Well, you are not alone. Timelines are established to keep the productivity of our organization moving forward as well as to meet all the specified business deadlines. We are fortunate to have the dedicated staff of the ASRT to manage the timelines and reminders of due dates. As we celebrate this year’s National Radiology Technology Week®, take time to include and thank all of the individuals who make our profession a success. This issue is full of valuable information and reflects the dedicated work of our professional volunteers.
