SDMS President's Message - April 2021

TedWhitten_200x300Dear SDMS Members,

April is National Volunteer Month and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank our volunteers for their tireless efforts on behalf of our members and the patients we serve.

2020 is a year that none of us will forget and despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, the dedicated volunteers of the SDMS gave a combined 6,800 hours of their time to support the sonography profession. They created professional development content for clinical refreshers and other SDMS learning activities, judged SDMS awards and competitions, oversaw the SDMS budget and financial reports, worked on proposed legislation, pivoted the SDMS Annual Conference to a virtual event, and much more. The SDMS would not exist without our volunteers.

As the current President of the SDMS and SDMS Foundation, I’d like to encourage you to think about volunteering for the SDMS. Volunteer opportunities with the SDMS range from long-term commitments such as the Board of Directors, committees, and task forces to micro-volunteer projects that are shorter in nature. Volunteering with the SDMS is an extremely rewarding experience and a wonderful way to grow both professionally and personally. You can view and apply for current SDMS volunteer opportunities (login required) on SDMS Collaborate.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to working with you to accomplish even greater things in 2021.
