SAVE THE DATE - SUPER SYMPOISUM April 28, 29, 2020 at a NEW LOCATION - The Hartford Marriott Downtown!
An Important Note From th CTSRC President - Credential Maintainence Program
Dear CTSRC members,
The CTSRC board of directors and its officers wish you a happy and prosperous new year. With the new year comes new things. This year the Super Symposium is coming to Hartford! We are very excited to hold our two day conference in our capital city at Hartford Marriott Downtown on April 28th and 29th. Please mark the dates in your calendar. More details will be coming soon to our but check out out events page for updates.
I would like to take this time to remind you to renew your AARC membership when it comes due. As you are probably aware being an AARC member makes you a CTSRC member but what you may not know is that a portion of your membership dues is directed toward your state society. This helps to support our operations including our two annual conferences, scholarships for students and our efforts to expand our scope of practice and advocate legislatively for our patients and our profession. Your membership not only works for you on a national level but here in CT where you live and work.
Finally, I would like to alert you to changes in the NBRC Credential Maintenance Program. These changes became effective this month. Maintaining your credentials is serious business. You worked very hard to earn them, you don't want to lose them and more importantly our licensure law requires that you have a CRT or RRT credential. For more information about the changes, please go the NBRC website. Regardless of what NBRC CMP option you choose, our state licensure law requires that you obtain 10 CEUs annually. Five of these must be in real time such as conferences or live webinars. For more information about this requirement visit the CT DPH website.
Wishing you a safe and happy winter season. See you in the Spring.
