Volunteering

CAMRT-BC has many opportunities for members to volunteer. These opportunities allow members to build their experience in areas of personal interest, to contribute back to the profession, and also to enjoy meeting other MRTs from across the province.  One easy way to start as a volunteer is to become a Site Ambassador.

We are currently Seeking 2-4 new advisory council members
Term: 2 years, March 2021 – February 2023

The Advisory Council provides advice and support to the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) staff and Board of Directors regarding issues relating to MRT practice and provincial member services in BC. The Advisory Council is comprised of members from each of the four disciplines and is geographically and clinically diverse.

The council functions under the guidance of the Provincial Manager, CAMRT-BC. Meetings are held face to face in Vancouver twice annually (typically April/May and October).
*During the COVID-19 pandemic, until it is safe to travel or meet in person, meetings will be held virtually.

As an advisory member, you will be a critical voice in representing MRTs in the province, assessing member needs in areas such as advocacy, outreach, education and member recognition.

Applicants are:

  • current members of the CAMRT-BC
  • from any of the four disciplines (RTT, RTR, RTNM, RTMR)
  • from any part of the province
  • available for two meetings as described above
    *the meeting dates for 2021 will be planned as soon as possible after successful candidates are selected

Application deadline:  Sunday January 31, 2021

  • submit a one-page cover letter describing why you are interested in this volunteer position
  • submit a one-page resume of work and volunteer experience you feel is most relevant to participating on the council.
    *For 2021, we are especially seeking RTMR and RTT representation

I joined the CAMRT-BC Advisory Council in January 2020.  As a new council member, I have enjoyed meeting other MRTs and hearing about their roles and work environments, their challenges, and accomplishments in the past year. Sarah has been great in leading our council and Sarah is appreciative of the time that we take to share dialogue via emails and attending our bi-annual meetings, which have been online this past year. Outside of these meetings, the time commitment is totally at the discretion of each council member and I have found my experience on the council to be very enjoyable and rewarding. It is great to be on a multi-disciplinary council as we strive to reach our common goals for all MRTs in BC, in areas such as recognition, professional development and advocacy.”
