To Our Members Affected by the Tornadoes in Tennessee

Dec 12, 2023

The ϲʿⱦ Board of Directors and staff send their sympathy and concern to the members and their families who were affected by the tornadoes in Tennessee that touched down on Dec. 9. Our thoughts are with all of you as you recover.

“As ϲʿⱦ has hundreds of members who live in the areas hit by the tornadoes, the Society’s staff and Board of Directors have moved quickly to implement a measure to support members affected by this disaster,” said ϲʿⱦ Chair of the Board Daniel L. Gonzales, M.S.R.S., R.T.(R), Fϲʿⱦ.

For ϲʿⱦ members living in Tennessee’s Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Gibson, Montgomery, Robertson, Stewart, Sumner, Trousdale, Weakley and Wilson counties, the Society has automatically extended your membership for 90 days. You will retain your original join date and your member record will not show any lapse in membership.

If you have been displaced because of the tornadoes and have a new mailing address, please update your membership record online by going to or by calling ϲʿⱦ at 800-444-2778. Please note that the storm could affect the delivery of the December/January issue of ϲʿⱦ Scanner and the January/February issue of Radiologic Technology.

Radiologic technologists who are concerned about their ability to meet their continuing education requirements should contact the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists at 651-687-0048, Ext. 8540. The ARRT establishes CE policies for its registrants.

Many ϲʿⱦ members have contacted us to express their interest in assisting with relief efforts. Because ϲʿⱦ does not have the infrastructure to organize disaster recovery efforts, we encourage our members to volunteer with reputable, established relief teams that are already in place. For example, those interested in volunteering for cleanup efforts, shelter operations or recovery teams can contact the , the or .

In addition, ϲʿⱦ members are using the ϲʿⱦ Communities to communicate ways to assist individuals in the affected areas. Please visit the ϲʿⱦ Radiography Community to join the conversation.

“We hope all medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals affected by the tornadoes are safe and secure,” said ϲʿⱦ President Brandon A. Smith, M.B.A., M.S.R.S., R.T.(R)(VI), CIIP. “ϲʿⱦ has a responsibility to support its members in Tennessee and we’re ready to do whatever it takes to ensure they have the tools, services and support to move toward a path of recovery.”
