Dear SDMS Members,
As 2020 comes to a close, I’m looking forward to the new year where hopefully, we will finally be able to see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although this year will be defined by the stress of dealing with the pandemic, I’ll also look back on it as a year that sonographers really rocked! I’m so proud of the tremendous job that all of you were able to do in the midst of the chaos created by uncertainty and an inadequate supply of PPE.
I’m also really proud of the tremendous job that the SDMS and the SDMS staff did in providing valuable resources for sonographers and sonography education programs. Together with the SDMS volunteers on the Conference Management Committee, they were able to transform the SDMS Annual Conference into a virtual experience with over 6,000 registrants! I was amazed by the excellent quality of the virtual event, especially in light of attending various other organizations’ Zoom meetings that were filled with numerous technology glitches.
2020 was also the very first year of the SDMS Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Program that was comprised of a cohort of sonography students and early career sonographers. I really enjoyed getting to know each member of the group and am encouraged to know that such high-quality candidates are the future of sonography and, potentially, the SDMS leadership. We will all be in good hands in the future!
Again, thank you for all of your hard work as sonographers this year. On behalf of the SDMS, I hope that you enjoy this holiday video from us to you.
