THE PRACTITIONER OF THE YEAR AWARDS: These awards recognize respiratory care practitioners who have demonstrated considerable involvement, motivation and value to the profession of respiratory care. This award is designed specifically to recognize an active AARC member in the SCRC who most exemplifies what it means to be a truly dedicated and ideal respiratory care practitioner. This is not a service award recognizing professional/political/committee work. Rather, it recognizes the practitioner who, day in and day out, works to improve patient care in whatever arena he or she may be working. One practitioner will be recognized in each of the following categories: clinical, education, and leadership.

I attended my first SCSRC BOD Meeting as a committee chair, on April 10, 2015. I had anticipated the event for months with some degree of trepidation and was concerned that I would not understand some fine point of the Roberts Rules of Order (http://www.rulesonline.com/) that govern the Parliamentary format of the meeting.
