Welcome, Thanks for BRPT Leadership
I would like to take this opportunity to say congratulations and thank you to Cindy Altman, RPSGT, R. EEG/EP T, who the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT
) named president of the Board of Directors.
Altman has been a member of the BRPT Board since 2010 serving as chair of the website development committee, an active participant on the exam development committee, and, this past year, as president-elect. She is the technical director for the Creighton University Sleep Disorders Center in Omaha, Neb. Her two-year term as president begins this month.
I also would like to thank Janice East for the time she put in serving as the president of the BPRT. Janice, I believe served prior to Mark DiPhillipo and again after his term as president. (Mark DiPhillipo was president when I became registered. I have never met him but I did have the pleasure of meeting Janice last year at the ASET meeting in Atlanta. I may have met Cindy too, her face is so familiar, but I just can not remember. That was an action packed, fast paced meeting. At any rate...) I think we are all very fortunate to have had Janice as long as we did. Her commitment to her profession is truly honorable.
And now the torch is passed to Cindy Altman and to her I say "welcome." This position is a tremendous amount of work and a challenge that I hope she finds rewarding. I look forward to meeting her and feel sure she is ready to drive us on. The vehicle that is sleep looks like it may be a wild ride.
Thanks ladies for all your efforts on behalf of sleep technologists everywhere.
