Candidate Statement:

The Academy should couple its existing resources and technologies to actively engage members to help meet our mission. We have a hardworking Board staffed by a committed office and need to discover ways to be reaching out to members using all of today's technology from social media to our website. The Academy should seek partnerships both inside and outside of APTA to widen our reach, share our expertise, and engage stakeholders who can benefit from our energy, knowledge, and skill set. Connecting our members, who are spread throughout the country, with each other in ways that work in their busy lives will foster the collaboration needed to advance acute care practice. I know having served the last three years as AACPT President that we can continue to move in this direction. Part of why I'm seeking a second term is to continue the momentum and projects we've started to see our new strategic plan blossom. The more active engagement we have from membership the easier it will be to reach our mission to foster excellence in acute care practice, in all settings, in order to enhance the health and functioning of patients and clients.
