"ASEP Annual Meeting 2005: Extremely Pleased!"
Matt Lehn, MS, EPC,
President-Elect, ASEP

The annual meeting for any professional organization is an exciting time. Professionals are able to network, catch up with former colleagues, learn the latest from their field, think critically about the state of their profession, and get energized for the future. The American Society of Exercise Physiologists 7th Annual Meeting and Conference, taking place on April 8th & 9th in Minneapolis, MN, will prove to be an invigorating event for exercise physiologists.

We are extremely pleased with this years meeting. The conference will feature 27 presentations from exercise physiologists in academia, clinical settings, and students. The wide variety of topics will ensure that something will be of special interest to everyone in attendance. Research, professional and general topics will all be included to help expose all exercise physiologists to areas of their profession that they may not be familiar with. Topics for the meeting include:

While learning the latest from our field is important, likely the most important aspect is the relationships that are built and the unity provided by sharing a common interest for the future of the profession. Whether meeting individually or as group, hearing those facing the same challenges and concern that you share creates a unique opportunity to generate energy and passion for the profession.

Any exercise physiologist can attend an ASEP meeting. ASEP believes that all individuals with degrees in exercise physiology are exercise physiologists. ASEP members are educated professionals who have a minimum of a bachelor's degree (or emphasis) in exercise physiology (or science). They work in a variety of settings including; colleges and universities, hospitals, clinics, fitness centers, wellness centers, research settings, and numerous other important areas.

The location of the meeting, taking place at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport
is the nearest full service hotel to the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and only 1 mile from the Mall of America, the nation's largest shopping mall/entertainment complex. It is also adjacent to the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge overlooking the beautiful Minnesota River Valley. The Hiltons convenient location allows easy access to all major freeways of the Twin Cities. Guest rooms are oversized and designed for guest comfort with amenities including 2 two-line telephones with guest voice mail, data port and high-speed Internet access. The Hilton also features a recreation area featuring an indoor pool, two whirlpools and fitness center. Hiking and walking trails are also available adjacent to the hotel.

This quality conference is yet another example of the hard work of ASEP on behalf of all Exercise Physiologists. This conference will provide an opportunity for all Exercise Physiologists to network with peers, learn more about the latest in the field of Exercise Physiology from clinical, research and professional topics. Past ASEP annual meetings have been great successes, with 100% of last years attendees stating they would recommend the conference to a colleague. With quality speakers and timely topics, this meeting promises to be just as successful.
We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis!

Q.) Is ASEP working with CMS to form a national registry so that our profession
can be viewed along the same lines as PT's, PTA's Rt's, nurses...?

-Kevin McNamara M.S.
 Exercise Physiologist

A.) Dear Kevin,

The efforts of ASEP at present are focused on achieving objectives that will ultimately lead to licensure of Exercise Physiologists. Although a national registry may have its advantages, it is licensure that truly identifies and distinguishes a profession within allied health care. Licensure is what provides physical therapists and nurses, for example, with the professional status and respect they have. Licensure must be established in each state individually. However, part of the process to establish licensure requires a national organization dedicated to the profession, a scope of practice, as well as an accreditation process that ensures credibility of the academic programs that will train these future professionals. These key objectives, as well as many others, are being addressed by ASEP.
