States Notified of National Sputum Bowl Decision
May 2, 2011
A letter has gone out to the AARC state society presidents and delegates that the national Sputum Bowl will be discontinued beginning in 2012. The 2011 competition will be held in Tampa as planned.
The letter indicates the decision was made because of the decreased support and interest by members for the Sputum Bowl at the national meeting. The Board acted at its recent meeting in April on a recommendation from the Program Committee.
Additionally, the letter stated, “We hope to replace this activity with another that our members will look forward to participating in. We are looking for ideas and input from our members to create a new event that will be better supported or in modifying the Sputum Bowl so that this event is more contemporary.”
