ELIGIBILITY - ACTIVE MEMBER OF AST An individual must be current with certification through the National Board of Surgical Technology & Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) as a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST). A CSFA only (and not a CST) and Pre77’s without currency are not eligible to vote. The individual must be current in their AST membership and at the time of the conference. Keep in mind membership status can on occasion lapse between the time the person is designated as a delegate and the annual conference. All delegates must be a full registrant for the AST National Annual Conference. Cannot be the Chair if not a delegate. AST ANNUAL
NATIONAL CONFERENCE During the national conference, the only time a President or Chair can move an alternate to a delegate: When a delegate does not attend the conference and the state has previously designated alternate and in conference attendance. When a State Assembly President or Chair finds a delegate is not following their state assembly policies.
EXPECTATIONS The primary responsibility of delegates is to attend the opening ceremony, First and Second Business Sessions of the House of Delegates, the Candidates Forum, and to participate in Voting for candidates for the national Board of Directors and Officers. Delegate ribbons must be worn during the conference. Alternate ribbons no longer needed. The Credentials Committee and the AST Board of Directors request that conference attendees dress appropriately for all functions of AST. Let us show ourselves, as well as others; that AST is indeed a professional association and that its members reflect that professionalism.
