Congress Proposals Due Dec. 14
Next week is the deadline to share your ideas for AARC Congress 2012. Fill out your program proposals on Easy Street. And mark AARC Congress 2012 in New Orleans on your calendar for Nov. 10-13.

Update Your Resources for 2012
If you haven’t already updated your resource library with the Orientation and Competency Assurance Documentation Manual for Respiratory Care, 2nd Edition, you may want to start now to prepare for the coming year. The manual provides an overview of the process and includes over 90 forms ready for immediate use in virtually every area of respiratory care. You can even customize the forms for your facility! Visit the AARC Respiratory Catalog to order this manual or other management resources from the AARC.

Specialty Sections Offer Targeted Information
The AARC serves as a great home for RTs across the country, but if you’re looking to connect with folks who specialize in specific practice areas, then one or more of our ten Specialty Sections are for you. Click on the link to see what’s available and then sign up today. (You can add Specialty Section membership to your AARC membership package any time during the year.)

Year-End Price Cuts on AARC T-shirts
Hard to believe, but it’s almost 2012. So we’re lowering prices in the AARC Respiratory Catalog to clear the shelves before year-end inventory. Shop now through the end of December at super low rates for respiratory-themed t-shirts. Limited to existing inventory only.

Good Press: AARC Members in the News
AARC members continue to make headlines around the country, and our latest list has some great stories–you can even catch a glimpse of one of our long-time PACT members in the recent interview on ABC’s 20/20 with Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband, Astronaut Mark Kelly.
