Cardiology PRN Membership Survey
Colleagues,

Believe it or not, the 2016-2017 Cardiology PRN year is winding down already—how time flies! This year, to expedite committee work so that we can meet some of the early deadlines (e.g., Nominations Committee, Programming Committee), the Cardiology PRN Executive Committee decided to conduct a survey of membership over the summer that will serve 2 purposes: 1) provide the 2017-2018 Cardiology PRN Officers with feedback to help guide next year’s committee charges and related activities, particularly as it relates to resource allocation; 2) allow members to volunteer for one of the ~32 vacancies for the 7 Cardiology PRN committees. The Cardiology PRN Executive Committee consulted with Chair-Elect and Secretary/Treasurer candidates to develop the survey. It will remain open until 9/1/17 23:55pm CST. During the month of September, the 2017-2018 Cardiology PRN Officers will develop committee charges and select committees. Survey results will be shared with members during the Cardiology PRN Business Meeting and also made available on the PRN’s website in October.

This is a great way to have your voice heard. Last year, we had 125 (~8.5% of PRN members) individuals respond to our needs assessment and 87 (~5.9% of PRN members) volunteer for PRN committees, representing a small minority of the ~ 1400 PRN members. We’re hoping for a better response rate this year. So, please complete the survey.

From PRN President - Robert DiDomenico
