We are committed to representing and serving nuclear medicine and molecular imaging professionals through educational programs, outreach, networking, and advocacy.
The Pacific SouthWest Technologist Chapter, PSWTC, is incorporated and operated solely by volunteer technologists. The chapter is vast in size, including the geographical areas of Southern California, specifically from Bakersfield south, all of Arizona, Las Vegas and areas south in Nevada. Our chapter is made up of over 1300 members.
The PSWTC offers three continuing education meetings during the year to serve the chapter members. Since our chapter covers such a large geographic area we seek out locations willing to host a telecast of our City Of Hope annual meeting, and our spring meeting. Telecasting gives our members access to attend meetings without the added expense of travel, and is a great time saver. Our summer Viva Las Vegas meeting is a big event but must be attended live. We hope to see you there.
We are always recruiting new leadership into our chapter and conduct a biennial 2 1/2 day PSWTC Leadership Academy. This is a small group setting with intense training with the aid of an outside expert in staff development. This training is conducted just prior to the annual business meeting.
We are using GoToMeeting, an online meeting application, for our monthly Board of Directors meetings. This allows our leadership to reside in various geographical areas and actively participate in the leadership. This has allowed a significant expansion of leadership to more accurately represent the membership. We are always looking for members who would like to become more active in our chapter.
