Times of change are windows of new opportunity. Get in touch with me (president@wsrs.org) or anyone on our leadership team or contact our association executive, Debra Alderman, debra@wsrs.org

WSRS Olympia Day – Feb 24, 2015
Save the date! Make your voice heard, literally, Tuesday, Feb 24, 2015. This will be our 3rd annual membership advocacy event. Member participants at previous Olympia Days have provided strongly favorable feedback in regard to access, impact, enjoyment and logistics. It is critical for the radiology perspective to be included in all relevant discussions in Olympia, and legislators appreciate hearing from and visits from their constituents. WSRS political advocacy efforts focus on and promote issues that we all share as imaging professionals so as to bring us together and build the strength of our professions. Please block your schedule now and prepare to enjoy a productive Olympia Day on Feb 24, 2015.

WSRS Annual Meeting – Nov 8, 2014, Heathman Hotel, Kirkland, WA
All members are encouraged to attend this year's annual meeting! Plan to network, socialize, learn and earn CME. This year we are delighted that Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is teaming up with us to provide a program in the afternoon geared to the specific learning needs of radiation oncologists.

See our annual meeting page for details and to register online. Print brochures will be mailed out soon, so watch your mail box.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Medverd, MD
President, Washington State Radiological Society
