Elections to the Nebraska Society for Respiratory Care Board of Directors are approaching quickly. NSRC President Jill Sand is asking members to get involved with your state society.
"We are always looking for those therapists who would like to be progressive and become involved in the future of our profession!" Sand said. The commitment is not as strenuous as in the past; all BOD quarterly meetings can be attended via webinar or phone, so travel is no longer an issue.
"As you all know, 2020 has been a very unique year in our profession (and the world) and there is a lot to discuss and suggestions to be made concerning any changes needing to be made as a result of our current environment. We need to be on the forefront, or these changes will be decided for us," she said.
Over the last year, I have been able to work with a great group of Respiratory Therapists. I have learned a great deal from the NSRC board and committee members, NSRC members and AARC leaders. I hope that my knowledge, experiences and leadership that I shared over the last year were valuable in helping our society move forward together in 2019-2020.
I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with the board and committee members on a few initiatives. Our work consisted of aligning with our mission and values for short and long term goals. We also focused on increasing our membership, being more interactive on social media, and being able to offer a wider variety of educational opportunities, especially to have been offered at our annual state conference. However, the cancellation of the NSRC Conference in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic was disappointing. I am confident that we will offer an exciting conference next year addressing topics of interest.
