Spring 2021 NAACCR Narrative Leave a comment

Randi Rycroft, MSPH, CTR

NAACCR President



Happy Spring and Happy National Cancer Registrars Week! This marks the 24th year our community has recognized and celebrated the important role of cancer registrars in research and cancer control and prevention. Congratulations to all of our registrars and to our public health colleagues who are celebrating National Public Health Week during this same week.

Our next cause for celebration is the election of our new Board members! Congratulations to Kevin Ward, Georgia Cancer Registry, who is our new Treasurer. Our three newly elected Representatives at Large are: Wendy Aldinger, Pennsylvania Cancer Registry; Sarah Nash, SEER Alaska Native Tumor Registry (moving summer 2021 to State Health Registry of Iowa); Lorraine Shack (re-elected), Alberta Cancer Registry. And for the first time ever, we have an elected (rather than appointed) Nominating Committee: April Austin, New York State Cancer Registry, Deborah Hurley, South Carolina DHEC Central Cancer Registry, and Kim Vriends, Prince Edward Island Cancer Registry. Congratulations! Finally, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to those Board members who will be rotating off this year in June: Maria Schymura, Treasurer, New York Cancer Registry, and Isaac Hands, Representative at Large, Kentucky Cancer Registry. It has been a distinct honor and a pleasure working with both of you during my tenure as President and I hope you will continue to find ways to lend your expertise to NAACCR.

In closing, please make sure that you register for the NAACCR Summer Forum being held June 15-17th. The Early Bird registration deadline has been extended to June 6, 2021. Many of you need a more detailed agenda in order to request permission to register – that will be posted very soon so keep checking back on the Forum Website  for updated information. Once again, Happy Spring and stay safe and well!
