Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists

On November 12 and 13, 1938 forty-eight x-ray technicians met in Lima, Ohio and signed an Affiliation Charter of the American Society of X-ray Technicians thus officially forming the Ohio Society of X-ray Technicians (Radiologic Technologists). Roland McGowan, R.T. became Executive Director of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and Joan Parson, R.T. served the American Society of Radiologic Technologists in many capacities including her last position as Executive Vice President of Operations. The 1938 meeting was considered the first Annual Meeting of the OSXT.  Since its inception, annual meetings have been held except during the war years of 1943, 1944, and 1945. Meetings have been rotated among the cities of Ohio.  On March 2 and 3, 1957, the first Annual Educational Meeting was held in Columbus. That same year, the annual business meeting was moved to the fall. In 1975 a Student Quiz Bowl competition was initiated as part of the Annual Educational Meeting with teams from Radiologic Technology programs from across the state. These meetings were also rotated among the cities in Ohio until 1995 when the two meetings were combined. One meeting is now held each spring, the Annual Meeting of the Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists to include the Quiz Bowl competition. The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists publishes the Cardinal Rays, a newsletter distributed bi-monthly to members.   In addition, the OSRT maintains an active web-site with current information about the society and the profession. Fifteen members of the OSRT have been honoured with Life Membership and eight persons have been honoured with Honorary Life Membership.
