The American Society of Extracorporeal Technology has selected Chicago-based SmithBucklin. SmithBucklin’s Erin Butler will serve as AmSECT’s Executive Director, and the society’s headquarters will be in Chicago.
Founded in 1964, AmSECT is the largest professional society in the world for cardiopulmonary perfusionists. These healthcare professionals operate the machine that does the work of a patient’s heart and lungs during a surgical procedure in which the heart is stopped. AmSECT’s mission is to foster improved patient care and safety by providing for the continuing education and professional needs of the extracorporeal circulation technology community. The society has over 1,900 members throughout the world.
“We are impressed with the SmithBucklin team, particularly its principle-based philosophy and its dedication to supporting healthcare and scientific volunteer organizations,” said Jeffrey B. Riley, MHPE, CCP, AmSECT’s President. “We believe this new partnership will help us provide exemplary service to the society’s members and meet our growth objectives to serve more members of the perfusion community.”
