Happy New Year from the AARC!
The AARC would like to wish everyone a happy new year. As we enter 2010, the Association has some exciting things in store for members, so stay tuned to your AARC publications and the AARC web site for the latest developments.

One Week Left to Propose Speakers, Topics for 2010 Congress
Sure, the 2009 AARC Congress just ended a month ago—but the Program Committee is ready to get started on the 2010 session in Las Vegas. They need your input first, though, and you have until next Friday, Jan. 15, to weigh in with your RFPs for speakers and topics.

Next Week is National Influenza Vaccination Week
We're helping to spread the word about National Influenza Vaccination Week, Jan. 10-16. You can too! Tell your patients it's not too late to get vaccinated.

Kick Off the New Year with Aerosol Device Education
Looking for a way to get the new year off to the great start? Look no further than the AARC’s A Guide to Aerosol Delivery Devices for Respiratory Therapists—2nd edition. Not only will you learn the latest about the devices your patients use everyday, you’ll earn six hours of CRCE that’s free for AARC members.

Get Credit for Your Congress CRCEs by Jan. 15
If you attended the AARC International Respiratory Congress in December but have yet to enter your CRCEs, do it by Jan. 15. It’s quick, simple, and will ensure you receive credit for attending all those great sessions in San Antonio!

Good Press: AARC Members in the News
Our first Good Press of 2010 includes some great newsmakers who talk about everything from sleep and asthma to health care reform and a new ban on smoking.
