About Local Area Meetings

AHRA Local Area Meetings are a great way to network with fellow imaging professionals to discuss the latest industry issues and gain CE credits from educational sessions covering industry trends. These meetings are FREE to attend thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and you do not have to be an AHRA member. 

How to Bring an Area Meeting to Your Community

AHRA area meetings happen around the country thanks to the help of volunteers.

Sample Guide Detailing Organizing an Area Meeting
If you would like to bring an area meeting to you, simply volunteer to host one!

We make hosting a meeting as easy as possible. When you volunteer to be an area meeting host, the AHRA office will handle the logistics like registration, marketing, and CE tracking, but the three main things that AHRA needs your help with are:

1) Finding a location
2) Coordinating on-site details (food, beverage, etc.)
3) Recruiting one or more speakers: Speakers are usually provided by the sponsor or are from the facility hosting the event. Even members have been speakers and used topics they may have already presented at an AHRA event.

Important note to area meeting attendees: Sign in sheets are specific to EACH session (i.e. each session must have its own sign in sheet for auditing purposes). Session sign-in sheets MUST be signed at the START of EACH session. 

We're happy to offer both in-person AHRA Local Area Meetings, as well as virtual educational events, known as AHRA ONE: Online Networking Events. Learn more about AHRA ONEs, and decide what works best for you.
