A letter from the President to the Membership


May 10, 2022

Dear Colleague,

As we, as a community, try to step away from the pandemic into newer, more exciting times, your Board is pleased to announce many exciting, NEW things about your 2022 conference in Schenectady, New York. 

To start with, it will be in beautiful Schenectady, NY, just a few hours from NYC.  This quaint location offers a fresh look for our conference.  Schenectady is home of a nearby Casino, aquarium and many historical sites.

            

 This in-person conference will be held September 22-24 and will be a DUAL event with RTANYS, the Radiation Therapy Association of New York State.  This conference will offer unique networking opportunities along with at least 10 topical CE credits.  Our dual conference will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton, just five minutes from Rivers Casino.  Thanks to vendor sponsorships, this year’s conference will be less expensive than past years – how’s that for NEW?

Please plan to join us for this event, earlier this year, in September.  It will include student events, a new place to explore and excellent opportunities for all of us to collaborate.  Remember, this is an election year.  If you are interested, please reach out to our Nominating Committee Chair, Tabitha Sabater.

In closing, I’d like to thank each of you for your support to our profession and organization and let you know that we are looking forward to sharing a few surprises this year involving a new program to recognize and celebrate technologists! 

All the Best, 

   Ray

Raymond A. Fradella – RT (R), MS
