Message from our President,

            2015 will be a great year for PA-AST as we start the year with a wonderful meeting at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmingham, Pa. It is a three day event full of learning and networking opportunities for all surgical technologists. At the meeting we will hold elections for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and board members of our state organization. Come join us for this great meeting and think about being a part of PA-AST! 
            We are also looking toward the future by continuing to work on legislation at the state level, to make certification a condition for employment in Pennsylvania. We need everyone to become interested in this journey with us.
            As always we are looking for better ways to serve the surgical technologists of Pennsylvania . Please send us any suggestions you may have for topics you would like to have discussed at our meetings. If you would like to host a meeting in your area, please contact us and we will help you with the process.
            We as PA-AST, are here to serve you. Thank you for your evolvement in the past and in the future. If we work together we can accomplish great things in 2015.

Mary Grogan PA-AST President
