NEW YORK STATE SOCIETY OF
RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES, INC.
May 28, 2021
On behalf of our entire board and committee chairs, we hope that this finds you and your family well.
As we enter the fifteenth month of COVID-19, we appear to see the light at the end of the long tunnel. With most of our population vaccinated and with continued vigilance, we are starting to get back to normalcy in our personal and professional lives.
Your NYSSRS board has met six times since October of 2020. Five of those meetings were held via Zoom and the last one, our spring board meeting, was held in-person in April.
It was during this in-person meeting that we decided to have an in-person annual conference in Corning, NY on October 21-23, 2021. Careful precautionary steps to keep everyone safe including requiring masks, social distancing and cleaning protocols will be taken.
There were other changes made as a result of listening to many of you in the past. These include:
v *NEW FEATURE* After the annual conference, we will be offering 1-2 virtual presentations on a given date after our conference in October, 2021 (to be announced) to all members, free of charge.
v The Student Quiz Bowl will be held on Friday, October 22nd instead of on Saturday. Doing this will give our students a chance to focus their preparatory attention earlier in the conference so that they can better enjoy the rest of it.
v A focus of this board is to become more involved in legislative bills in the NYS Assembly & Senate. We have coordinated with the ASRT to display a legislative link on our NYSSRS.org website so that you can see the key issues involving our profession. We have also petitioned our legislators on certain advocacy issues.
There is more to share at our annual meeting in Corning, NY. Our goal is to make you proud to be a member of the NYSSRS, so much so, that you feel empowered to support your profession as you see fit.
Wishing you a safe and fun summer season.
All the Best,
Ray Fradella – RT (R), MS
President - NYSSRS
