CAMRT is seeking members from the disciplines of radiological technology, MRI and/or nuclear medicine to serve on its Advocacy Advisory Council (AAC).
Role of the AAC member
The AAC is instrumental in providing advice and expertise on the CAMRT advocacy plan and its effective implementation, as well other initiatives to strengthen the identity, position and voice of the medical radiation technology profession.
Each member of the council serves on the AAC for a period of two years. There is one face-to-face meeting each year, with teleconferences as required.
The role of the AAC is to:
- Assist in the identification and assessment of emerging political issues affecting and influencing MRT practice and health care
- Consult on submissions to government(s) on significant issues affecting and influencing MRT practice and healthcare
- Assist with the annual review and updating of the government relations component of the CAMRT advocacy plan
- Collaborate with provincial organizations on government relations strategies at a local level as appropriate
- Assist with the annual review and update of CAMRT advocacy tools
- All AAC members are members of CAMRT
- Each member is knowledgeable in, and comfortable representing, their respective modality and/or area(s) of expertise
- Each member should demonstrate a history of active participation in advocacy initiatives in their professional association(s), community or special interest groups
- Prior volunteer experience in CAMRT or provincial associations is highly desired
Because we are trying to maintain a national geographic representation on the committee, we are especially interested in finding volunteers from Atlantic Canada, Ontario and/or Quebec.
Because we are trying to maintain representation from all disciplines, we are also particularly interested in finding members from the disciplines of Radiological technology and MRI.
CAMRT members with relevant experience and an interest in contributing to the advancement of the medical radiation technology profession through effective advocacy are invited to forward a brief statement outlining their interests and applicable experience, along with a copy of their CV to Christopher Topham, Director, Advocacy, Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 17, 2016.
