Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management announced the results of its membership campaign at its 40th Annual Meeting closing session held in Orlando, FL. Launched a year ago at the 39th Annual Meeting, the campaign started at 3,607 members with a goal to reach 5,000 – an all time membership high – by this year’s meeting. That goal was met.
The intent of this initiative was to grow the membership base with new imaging professionals, as well as retain its current members. Newly enhanced membership models were designed to make the association’s products and services more accessible than ever. Based on facility bed size, annual group rate memberships became available for as little as $82 per person. (Individual membership is currently $175 per person.) This gives members the ability to provide their entire teams with access to AHRA member benefits in one affordable payment.
“The dedication and enthusiasm of our membership during the past year is the very reason why AHRA has benefited from a grassroots campaign strategy. This unprecedented growth means our association is in a position of strength that will enable additional educational programming, operational and management tools, and networking opportunities. The volunteer members, staff, and board of directors will continue to push the limits of where we can go in the year to come.” — Carlos Vasquez, CRA, FAHRA, AHRA President
“It is an unprecedented time in the healthcare industry. New regulatory changes paired with shifting reimbursement models are shaking the foundation of nearly every organization. In times like these, I am grateful to be a member of the AHRA, because the organization works for each and every leader in our profession striving to bring all of us the information that is shaping our world. 5,000 was a tremendous goal and I know we will keep going, keep adding, and keep growing!” — Brenda Rinehart, CRA, FAHRA, National Campaign Chair
