|AVIR BOD ELECT|
Board of Directors Election
We look forward to meeting the challenges of 2017 with you. We are confident that our board possesses the innovation that will lead to the continued growth of the AVIR. In addition to our traditional board positions, the AVIR has also instituted an Educational Committee, who under the guidance of the Vice President, will work to fulfill one of our most important responsibilities, providing relevant and engaging continuing education credits and opportunities to our members.
I am incredibly grateful for the time I have been able to serve on the AVIR board of directors over the last year as the Annual Program Chair. This position as afforded me many opportunities including networking with other leaders within our field, and the obvious; working to plan our very anticipated annual meeting.
I have many goals for our organization as president-elect. There are several changes approaching in the near future on guidelines upheld by the ARRT that will affect all technologists. With these evolving requirements, we will be responsible for providing more to our membership. As president-elect and Chairman of the Education committee, I will ensure we continue to provide our members with consistent and relevant educational offerings to meet these requirements. This provides great opportunity to expand our membership by leading continuing education in the interventional field.

Lora Cheek, RN-Associate Director
Hello, I am Lora Cheek, an RN of twenty-one years’ experience at The University of Maryland Medical Center and I would be honored to participate in the continued diverse growth of AVIR as the RN representative to the AVIR Board of Directors. Having spent fourteen years in the Neurocare ICU, two years as the Stroke Coordinator and the last five years in Intervention Radiology, I have been very privileged to have worked with many distinct hospital teams throughout the hospital. Stroke and care of the Neuro patient are two of my passions and I feel fortunate that I’ve been asked to lecture on these subjects at a number of Local, State and National conferences. Additional interests in the healthcare setting include; decreasing clinical errors, improving patient outcomes, increasing patient and staff satisfaction and enabling procedures to be done in a safe environment. I believe we can accomplish amazing advancements in healthcare with our clinical teams through situational awareness, mutual support, and communication by allowing everyone to have an equal voice.
All ballots must be received by Friday February 3rd 2017. Your participation will take only seconds but will help direct AVIR for the next year.Thank you for taking an active role in AVIR.
