Where Respiratory Care Managers & Educators Meet

In 2012, the AARC Summer Forum will deliver an exciting new venue and a powerful new approach for managers and educators. Held in the capital of New Mexico, Santa Fe is rich with Native American heritage, artistic culture, and southwestern cuisine.  With its incredible landscape, beautiful sunsets, and clear skies, Santa Fe is the perfect destination to combine your professional development with a once-in-a-lifetime family vacation.

The AARC Summer Forum promises an enhanced experience in 2012. Through both lectures and interactive sessions, managers will become leaders; adept at improving the performance of their department. This year’s program is specifically designed for managers to return home with resources, tools, and templates they can immediately implement into practice. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from long-tenured leaders in “View from the C-Suite”, develop your facilitator skills from a performance improvement guru, or how to define “value” in your department from a past-president of the AARC.

Educators will be exposed to innovative teaching and learning strategies. Novice and experienced educators alike won’t want to miss out on sessions geared towards program development and the “business side” of running a successful RT program.  This year’s Jimmy Young Lecture, delivered by NBRC President Kerry George will discuss new changes to the NBRC’s credentialing system. Program directors will also be able to learn how to imbed research projects into their curriculum, and much, much, more.

While you’re there, you’ll also have the opportunity to:

  • Network and share ideas with other managers and educators
  • Visit with thought-leaders in your profession
  • Interact directly with Summer Forum speakers
  • Attend add-on courses…both before and after Summer Forum
  • Learn more about the latest in educational research
  • Enjoy the sites and scenes in and around historic Santa Fe, NM
  • Connect with your adventurous side—go hiking, mountain bike riding, fly fishing, rock climbing, etc.

And, of course, you’ll earn up to 13.83 hours of continuing education credit (CRCE®) credits, too.
