Welcome to the 2020 TSRC Ballot

Thank you for participating in the Texas Society for Respiratory Care election. The TSRC is stronger than ever and your participation in the election demonstrates an interest in seeing the Society reach its mission. Each candidate was either self-nominated or nominated by another member. The nominations committee and the TSRC Board vetted all nominees and have approved the candidates listed on this ballot. If elected, each candidate will serve the Society for a two-year term. We have the following open positions:
  • Secretary
  • Delegate
  • West Region Director
  • South Region Director
You may vote for 1 candidate within each position. A candidate biography can be found on the TSRC Elections Central page. For Regional Director positions, please only vote for the candidate in your geographic region. For example, if you live in Beaumont please don't vote for a West Region Director candidate. Information on regional structure can be found on the TSRC website and by clicking on the links to the West and South regions. Once again, thank you for participating.
