Regional Educator Award
Regional Directors are soliciting their members to nominate someone in their region that has genuinely contributed to promoting and furthering the profession of anesthesia technology, has this person:
- Helped you or a group of technicians and technologist gain valuable knowledge in the field of anesthesia technology?
- Volunteered their time to provide quality lectures for continuing education credits?
- Worked to improve the anesthesia technology profession?
ASATT would like to pay tribute to those individuals who are not required or paid to advance the education of technicians and technologists, but whose sincere interest promotes education in our specialty. If you were able to associate a name to any of those questions, show your appreciation by taking a few minutes of your time to complete and submit the Regional Education Awards Form.
I encourage every member to consider who in your region has exemplified this award. All nominations will go directly to the Regional Directors for review. If more than one person, facility, or company is nominated in a region, the Regional Director will ultimately choose the recipient.
Completed forms can be mailed, faxed or emailed to Alex LLanas. Nominations for Regional Education Awards must be received no later than July 1, 2018.

Please accept this notice as our official call for the nominations of the Board and Executive Directors 2018-2019 terms. Every year we ask our members to nominate someone they believe can help ASATT further grow as an organization. Please take a minute to think about those around you. Are they motivated? Have they been active in ASATT? Have they wanted to be? Does this person want to see the profession grow and mature? Do they participate in furthering education for anesthesia technicians and technologists? Are they sincere in advancing the society for the benefit of the entire profession?
