Howzit going gang,

End of the year is upon us and I hope it’s been a good one for all.

Recap of 2018:

-Our first meeting was in Portland, Oregon hosted by Neil Allen and his crew at Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside. Neil presented his own topic of “Anesthesia Techs for the Win”.

-Second meeting was in Honolulu, Hawaii hosted by Delbert Macanas. This was Delbert’s 20th meeting in Hawaii. One of the longest running regional meetings for ASATT.

-Third meeting in Bellevue, Washington hosted by John Gonzalez and his awesome crew at Overlake Hospital. It was amazing and one long day of lectures. John and his crew pulled together and got us 10 lectures for a total of 10 CE’s

-We elected Lyndal Wilson-Bishop to receive our regional education award. She has helped many anesthesia techs by providing countless hours and guidance toward creating avenues for education in the field of anesthesia techs.

-I’d like to recognize Pat Hegge for always supporting ASATT. He spoke at our annual conference in Vegas and has lecture numerous times in region 7.

-Appreciation to Gary West. He has supported ASATT for years and he spoke at our annual conference in Vegas too. I look forward to meeting more of Gary’s students at our meetings and hearing more of Gary’s lectures.

Looking forward to 2019 we have three meetings coming up. If you have had the urges to host a meeting but don’t know where to start. Start by contacting me, and I’ll help you with how to host a meeting. Keep in mind that the host gets free admission to their meeting and 1 free CE.

Remember our annual conference will be in Orlando, Florida this coming October. Keep an eye out and see you in Orlando.
