    Good Morning MSRT Members and Friends:

    I would like to introduce myself. I am Sue McClanahan, President-Elect of the MSRT and besides introducing myself, I am asking for your help.

    My past 50+ years of radiologic work history is varied; I have worked in small and large hospitals, the University of Minnesota Veterinary Teaching Hospital and in Radiation control for the Minnesota Department of Health.

    Currently, I am retired but am CEO/co-owner of the Radiologic Education Center in Spring Lake Park, MN. Here we provide continued education on MN issues.

    My MSRT commitment continues to be very strong.  I have been a member since the late ‘50s servicing in multiple capacities.  I have served as both President and President-Elect.  Some of the committees I have served on are: the Continuing Education Committee (25 years), Chair and Co-Chair for the Continuing Education Committee and presenter for multiple education seminars including being the George Mansour Memorial Lecture.

    There are 2 Board Positions that will need to be filled at our September meeting, President-Elect and Secretary. The position requirements are posted on the MSRT web-site at www.MNSRT.com.

     For more information or if you wish to contact me directly, my e-mail is vern9803@q.com.

    I look forward to serving you as the MSRT President Beginning in September 2015.

    Sincerely,

    Sue McClanahan, RT(R), ARRT

    President-Elect.

    From ASRT website:

    The Affiliate Financial Assistance Program will launch in October 2014. Affiliates that are in good standing with the ASRT are eligible. ASRT will provide each eligible affiliate society with whichever is greater: either a $2,000 lump-sum payment per year or $1 for every ASRT member who resides in the city or state the affiliate represents. Under this plan, every affiliate that meets program criteria is eligible to receive at least $2,000.

     

    Email from Hollie Gonzales- ASRT Affiliate Services Associate:

     

    Today there 3964 or 66% of all ARRT registered RTs in Minnesota that are members of ASRT. For the Affiliate Financial Assistance Program, the MSRT is eligible to receive $1 for every ASRT member in your state as of the due date of compliance (September 30). Please keep in mind that this ASRT number I provided could be more or less on September  30, 2015.

     

     

    Let us know if you have any questions!!

    We received a few questions from membership during the business meetings at the annual conference.  The following is information we'd like to provide back to membership on the status of these questions:

    1) Can MSRT/ASRT provide a bundled package for membership?

    The bundled package would have to involve the ASRT/MSRT/AND ARRT as this is a bundle of our certification AND professional societies.  MSRT can continue with this suggestion, as it is a great idea.  We urge members to contact those organizations as well with their input.  ASRT original feedback was that if it was just bundled with ASRT and state society, it could actually be detrimental to ASRT as their membership is more expensive and current state society members wouldn’t renew if they had to pay an ASRT membership as well.  Without the requirement from the certifying group (the ARRT), it could potentially harm both ASRT and MSRT membership.


    2) Can we advertise our conference with the neighboring state societies?

    Unfortunately we did not take advantage of spreading the word to neighboring state societies for this last year.  It was published on our Facebook page numerous times, and many of the neighboring state presidents get the Facebook feed.  We will ensure that this information is shared for next year’s conference.


    3) Can we change our fiscal year?

    • On July 26, 2012 discussion took place at an MSRT board meeting.  The following is the discussion from the Treasurer’s Report at that meeting, we will put this on the Nov 6th board meeting agenda for discussion:

    Treasurer’s Report

    Sonya reported that Glen McClusky sent the letter this last week to Mickelson Wealth Management to see if we can gain access to our investments with Options Express(approx $53,000) and will update Sonya on response.

    Sonya discussed changed the fiscal to calendar year with Karen our MSRT accountant. If we change our fiscal year from August through July to January through December, we will have to change our accounting system (will cost approximately $5,000).


    Our Treasurer, Jill Lucas, is currently having conversations on the correct costs as this would just involve the cost of a new accounting software & filing short year taxes.
