Radon Specialists of Wisconsin is proud to announce that Dave is officially a member of the board of directors for the Midwest Chapter of the Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists. AARST is a national organization for Radon professionals with chapters across the U.S. AARST is a think tank and a training organization. Working with the EPA and U.S. Governments, it sets the standards for the Radon industry as far as testing and mitigation.
Dave found out about this honor at the national conference in Charleston, South Carolina earlier this month. Someone nominated him for the position, then all of the national members of AARST voted. A President and Vice President along with the top five candidates were then elected to the board. Being nominated and elected was a very humbling experience for Dave.
As a member of the AARST board of directors, Dave will be attending monthly meetings where up-coming updates and changes will be addressed. The board also discusses implementing any new policies or standards. As a board member, Dave will also be invited to attend semi-annual meetings in Washington DC and the annual floating national conference.
Being a member of the AARST provides many benefits, especially staying up to date on policy changes such as acceptable Radon levels. Dave likes being informed quickly so he can protect his customers from getting a test or system that may not be up to date. Being on the board of directors only amplifies that ability of getting the most current information as quickly as possible.
Over the first few meetings Dave is looking forward to learning the ropes from the more experienced members. But with that being said, he is also excited to give his input on issues and make sure that they are addressed.
