I am excited to be here celebrating the start of 2022 with all of you, our amazing, devoted, and compassionate AHRA Imaging Leaders.
I know many of you may be asking what our plans are for CLIMB since we had to cancel our Spring meeting in Savannah. I can assure you, our talented and dedicated AHRA staff and Spring Meeting Design Team members are diligently working on future alternative learning opportunities to help support your continued professional leadership development.
In the meantime, I encourage everyone to checkout and register early for our AMAZING 50th Annual AHRA Meeting coming up in Phoenix, AZ, July 10 -13, 2022.
I will always remember my very first AHRA meeting and the members who welcomed me and immediately made me feel like I had always been a part of the AHRA. The AHRA and my AHRA Family members have been a major supporter throughout my career. I am grateful for the relationships I have made over the last 18 years and I know that I am a better leader today because of the knowledge, skills, and mentorship that I have received by being part of this well-established association with its rich history of improving the field of medical imaging for so many.
The education I receive during our Annual AHRA meetings has kept pace with the trends, changes, and challenges we all face as imaging leaders, and it helps me to have the confidence I need to be the kind of leader I want to be. I hope we can all collectively celebrate the good that has come out of the last half-century, and these Annual AHRA events that have been an important part of it.
For those of you I am blessed to know, I look forward to seeing you in Phoenix, and for those of you that I have not yet met, I look forward to meeting you at our 50th Annual Meeting. Let’s have fun & learn together:
