Carlos Sanchez, CST, FAST
NJAST - President (President 2017 - 2019)
(Board Member 2016 - 2018)
(Board Member 2014 - 2016)
The time for change is here.
Taking on the responsibilities of NJAST President is both an honor and a privilege. Over the past few years, I have stood on the shoulders of giants, from past presidents to current Board Members, and am learning a great deal.
Thank you all for your trust and support.
I usually hear a "laundry list" of complaints and presumed reasons for many issues.
I say now: the New NJAST has a blueprint for tomorrow’s future: a vision of transparency and a positive transformation. I will listen to common sense ideas and waste no time with nonsense.
The role of surgical technologist has grown a great deal. Now it's time to grow our membership and make the public recognize who is "behind the mask". I have worked in the field of surgical technology for over 20 years. With your help I would like have transparence in reaching both short and long term goals, increasing our membership, and reducing cost.
It is our mission to promote the surgical technology profession through Association of Surgical Technologists (AST) membership and teamwork as a State Assembly with focus on education and credentialing, ensuring quality surgical patient care.
