Networking & Reconnecting

“I have never been to a conference and have always wanted to go. This one is close enough from home to drive! I hope to compete in the Sputum Bowl. I hope to reconnect with friends that may be there.” — Julie A. Smith, BS, RRT, CPFT, Perrysburg, OH

At Congress, you will be surrounded by thousands of colleagues working to help advance the respiratory care profession. Congress gives you the time and place to meet with others, reconnect with friends, engage in small group discussions, or even talk one-on-one with presenters.

CRCE Credits

“Congress is the best way to earn my CRCE credits while networking with peers from across the nation AND seeing all the latest technology. I have attended Congress almost every year for the past 15 years, and I look forward to it every time.” — Jeffrey Davis, BS, RRT, Thousand Oaks, CA

Did you know you have the chance to earn 20+ CRCEs when you attend the AARC Congress? Attending congress not only helps refine and develop your skills, it also helps you maintain your license as a great credit earning opportunity.

Experiences to Bring Back

“When I attend, I am able to make a more positive impact on my staff, my department, and the profession. This happens every year because, not only do I have the ability to listen to the latest and best information on everything pertinent to respiratory care, I get to network with and be mentored by some of the very best and brightest individuals in all of medicine so that I might one day be considered among them and be that mentor for others.” — Andrew Klein, BS, RRT-ACCS, RRT-NPS, AE-C, Chicago, IL

Bringing your newly-gained and recharged skills and knowledge back home to your facility and team truly enhances your Congress experience. You’ll come home with a wealth of ideas you can put right to work helping your own organization deliver improved care to respiratory patients.
