The field of sleep medicine and the profession of sleep technology continue to change at a remarkable pace. Rapid technological advances, constant insurance and billing changes, and recent revisions to the scoring rules may have you feeling overwhelmed.
But your professional society, the American Association of Sleep Technologists, is laser focused on helping you stay on the cutting edge of sleep technology. By renewing your AAST membership for 2013, you will be able to take advantage of new educational opportunities as we work together to promote and advance the sleep technology profession.
Beginning in January, all AAST members will get FREE access to two new online learning modules every month - a value of $600! Each installment in the Case of the Month and the Journal Club series will provide you with the most relevant and current information for sleep technologists. As you learn, you will have an opportunity to earn up to 24 CECs from the convenience of your home or office – at no additional cost!
You also will receive exclusive member discounts when you register for some of the premier educational events in the profession, including the AAST spring course in March 2013 and the AAST 35th Anniversary Meeting, which will be held June 2-4, 2013, in Baltimore, Md. And you will continue to receive members-only access to the online magazine A2Zzz, which you can read to earn an additional 8 CECs each year as a FREE benefit of membership.
As always, your membership also supports health policy and government relations initiatives to preserve the autonomy of the sleep technology profession. In these changing times, it is more important than ever for sleep technologists of all experience levels to unite together as we blaze new trails for our profession. Your AAST membership is an investment in yourself, your career and your profession. Go to www.aastweb.org and renew your AAST membership today!
