The Arkansas Society for Respiratory Care is pleased to invite you to nominate a fellow ASRC member that will be willing to serve our society for the following offices:

Nominations will be open from 5/16/2016-6/13/2016. This is the first year to implement our updated by-laws. The terms of service for each office are listed below.

President-Elect is successor to the office of President when the President’s term of office ends. President-Elect is a 1 year term, President is a 2 year term, and Past President is a 1 year term. If you accept a nomination as President- Elect this will be a 4 year commitment to the ASRC.

The leaders of this society have helped me grow personally a professionally. I will be forever grateful for the opportunities I have had to learn from some great leaders within the ASRC. I feel sure we can help develop more great leaders to secure our future and grow our society if we dig deep and nominate candidates with great professional/ leadership  potential.
