Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This presidential address reflects on my last 2 years as president of American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM). It recognizes those individuals who have been of significant help and support. The address discusses choices I have made in my professional life including selecting physical medicine and rehabilitation as a subspecialty; committing to an academic career; and choosing to get involved in local, state, national, and international physical medicine and rehabilitation societies. I review my presidential speech of 2001 when I spoke about the path we choose-to succeed or not to succeed. ACRM has come a long way in trying to succeed but continued opportunities remain in obtaining financial security, increased membership, and cost-effective and efficient management. This address includes 11 suggestions designed not only to keep the organization viable but also to allow ACRM to succeed. These suggestions include a new commitment to our strategic plan and the implementation of prioritized goals, reorganization of ACRM's national office, and adherence to a realistic budget. Finally, we must continue to move the agenda of research in rehabilitation forward much more aggressively.
