November 2011–Congratulations to design team members Debra Farnham, Tonya Bell-Brightmon, Latasha Hill, and Jason Scott for a very successful AHRA Fall Conference! More than 165 people attended the meeting, which was held at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in fabulous Las Vegas, NV. In addition to an action packed schedule of educational programming, there was plenty of opportunity for networking. The sharing of best practices among the participants is always one of the most rewarding aspects of AHRA meetings, and the Fall Conference was no exception. The lunch and break sessions were constantly buzzing with discussions about the current challenges and changes in the world of medical imaging.
Another area of discussion among attendees was the AHRA “Get Serious” membership campaign and the new organizational membership models. Ed Cronin was able to share numerous examples of how members had worked with their hospitals and/or health system leadership to get their entire teams signed up. It appears that once leadership understands how easy and cost-efficient it is to expand membership, the move to an organizational membership program becomes an easy decision to make.
The time seemed to go very fast, and it was sad to see the meeting come to an end. But, as always, it was great to see old friends, catch up on the latest industry news, and meet many new friends too. I’m already looking forward to the 2012 Spring Conference in Seattle. Hope to see you there!
