This year we have three board positions open, treasurer and two senior director positions. Each nominee was asked to provide a brief statement about themselves. The nominees will be available at the Collaborative Laboratory Conference; please feel free to meet them and ask any questions you may have. These individuals represent you!
Nominee for Treasurer: Catherine Shaffner
I have been a laboratory professional for 30 years and a member of ASCLS since the early 90s. ASCLS has had a great impact on my career and career choices. The professionals I have met through this society are a tremendous asset in my personal and professional growth.
My goals as ASCLS-Ohio treasurer would be to continue to secure financial stability for the organization. If we are to continue to grow we need to continue to secure our financial resources. My goal would be to continue to explore new options and continue to maintain the financial responsibilities of the organization.
Nominee for Senior Director: Greg Attenweiler
I have been a member of ASCLS-Ohio since 2007 and have previously served on the board as both a junior and senior director. During my time with ASCLS I have served on the membership committee for ASCLS-Ohio and helped out with the publicity and promotion committee for the Collaborative Laboratory Conference.
ASCLS-Ohio is a premier organization that provides opportunities for education, network working, leadership development and growth both personally and within the field of Medical Laboratory Science. In order to keep ASCLS-Ohio the premier organization it is we must attract new members, especially those recent graduates just entering the field. They can provide fresh ideas and tremendous motivation to move our organization to new heights. As a senior director I hope to develop a program that will attract not only students but also recent grads to ASCLS-Ohio. Communication with program directors as well as students and recent graduates will be key. We need to make sure they understand the benefits of being a member of ASCLS-Ohio. This will be the mission for my two year term if I am elected.
