Like Anywhere Else, There is a Role for Checklists in Advocacy

ASA represents more than 50,000 members. Those members come from states as small as Wyoming, with 46 active members, and states as large as California, with more than 2,600 active members. Whether your state is large or small, adequately staffed or not, applying a simple monthly checklist can advance your advocacy efforts.
While the above information is especially helpful for states without component society staff, every state – large or small – is at an advantage when its members take a proactive approach to advocacy. Members who use this checklist or similar tactics in conjunction with their personal knowledge of their state can become incredibly effective advocates on behalf of or against proposed measures. Proactive members are the difference in promoting and protecting the medical specialty of anesthesia and, most importantly, the safety of all patients.
