This letter is to inform all CSRC members of some major changes that are planned to occur over the summer months. As everyone is aware the past year has been very difficult on many. COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives. We as a professional society are so proud of all the efforts by Respiratory Therapists across our state and the nation. RTs have truly been healthcare heroes and deserve every bit of the recognition.
The CSRC has also been significantly impacted by the pandemic. The restrictions implemented by both the state and federal government to decrease the spread of the virus have prohibited the society from offering live in-person educational events, which are the main income sources for the society.
The CSRC BODs has been working closely with the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) to secure a future plan for the society.
Below is a list of things that will remain the same and changes that will occur over the next several months:

The Colorado Society for Respiratory Care greatly appreciates all the support from the business community. Without this support, our Society would not be able to provide to the Respiratory Professionals educational and informational opportunities like the State Convention and Chapter Symposiums. Their support of our Society also allows us to advocate for our profession and extend our expertise to the community.
The Colorado Society for Respiratory Care takes pride in advancing the profession in the State of Colorado. In further promoting outreach, the society has biannual grants available to deserving AARC members working on projects that benefit lung health in the community. Grants will be awarded based on application to funding initiatives such as patient and practitioner education, process implementation, and humanitarian projects.
This 6-month program was developed by the Colorado Society for Respiratory Care (CSRC) Board of Directors to help develop and support practicing respiratory therapists who are interested in advancing further in the profession of respiratory care.
