ASRT Receives National Advocacy Award

Sep 15, 2015

​The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has been named an ASAE 2015 Power of A Silver Award winner for its ACE campaign.

An annual recognition event created by the American Society of Association Executives, the Power of A Awards are a global showcase for how associations leverage their unique resources to solve problems, advance professional performance and kick-start innovation.

An American Society of Association Executives program, the Power of A Awards recognize the association community’s valuable contributions on the local, national and global level.

ASRT represents more than 153,000 registered radiologic technologists — professionals who perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures. The ACE campaign helps R.T.s educate patients about their role as registered radiologic technologists.

The core component of the campaign is an easy-to-remember acronym that reminds R.T.s to:

Announce your name.
Communicate your credentials
Explain what you’re going to do.

In addition, the campaign includes informational posters and patient education cards, and a Click To Commit call to action at www.asrt.org/ace that asks R.T.s to pledge that they’ll use the ACE principles in their daily patient interactions.

“The ACE campaign is a great example of how associations can educate the public about the value their members add to society,” said ASRT Chief Executive Officer Sal Martino. “The ACE campaign is an important initiative as it helps patients understand that they’re being cared for by registered radiologic technologists who are educated and highly qualified to perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures.”

In addition to recognizing associations' contributions, the awards honor outstanding accomplishments of associations and industry professionals for their efforts to enrich lives, create a competitive workforce, prepare society for the future, drive innovation and make a better world.
