Thank You from the Education Committee!​

The Education Committee would like to take some time to thank our Speakers from the 2015-2016 Webinar series. They made it possible to have a very successful Webinar Series. We had a lot of distinguished Speakers from all over the country, representing manufacturers and hospital staff. We had doctors, clinical engineers, IT representatives, managers, directors, administrators, etc. We would like to thank all of them for taking time out of their busy schedule to share with us their knowledge and help us advance the Clinical Engineering profession. These Speakers not only took time out of their busy schedule to support ACCE through the Webinar Series, but they did this for free in order to help ACCE save money and use it to support other ACCE activities.
