The academy will be a two-day course with an assemblage of current SNMMI-TS Leadership, key members of the SNMMI-TS, and SNMMI Staff who have dedicated themselves to improving SNMMI-TS achievement in the Nuclear Medicine and related fields. Lectures will be complimented with team building exercises which will enhance networking opportunities. Each lecture will consider a different aspect of leadership and will be led by technologists or keynote speakers with an intimate knowledge of the subject. The overall goal is to assemble a group of SNMMI-TS Leaders who understand the crucial role of leadership development and who are eager to begin the path to SNMMI-TS Leadership and organizational success.

After attending the Leadership Academy attendees will be able to;

  • demonstrate the skills gained at the Academy to their Chapter in the form of presentations at the Chapter level, Chapter leadership retreat, etc.,
  • be placed on an SNMMI-TS committee during the next appointment process
  • continue to work with their assigned mentor to develop a plan for their future success as an SNMMI-TS leader.

All aspiring SNMMI-TS members will be given the opportunity to apply to the Academy. In addition to the information on the application, all applicants will be assessed on the following criteria:

  1. Applicant has demonstrated a notable passion for the profession and would like to seek the leadership skills necessary to perform successfully in a Chapter or National SNMMI-TS Leadership position.
  2. Has the desire and skill set to become a leader in Nuclear Medicine and other related fields.
  3. Will serve the Chapter/SNMMI-TS as a positive and influential leader and representative of the SNMMI-TS Leadership Academy.

International Applicants: Technologists from outside the United States are eligible for selection to the Leadership Academy (LA) so long as they meet all published eligibility criteria, with the following additional stipulations. Airfare will be subsidized by the SNMMI-TS in the amount of $400, or the highest airfare amount paid for a LA attendee in that year, whichever is greater. The international attendee is responsible for booking the flight and the balance of the airfare cost. The SNMMI-TS will bear all other attendance costs to be borne for domestic attendees. It is recommended that the subsidy be paid as an expense only after attendance at the LA, rather than an amount paid in advance in case the individual chooses not to attend for any reason. Participation in local or international nuclear medicine technologist society governance will be accepted in lieu of participation in SNMMI-TS national or chapter governance. As the LA is conducted in English, the candidate must be fluent in English sufficient to benefit from attendance at the LA.

Please Note: A member may only attend the Leadership Academy once as an official SNMMI-TS attendee.

The application deadline for the 8th Annual Academy has been extended until Tuesday, September 30, 2014. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance into the academy by October 31, 2014.
