The Virginia Association of Central Services came into being as a means of identifying and unifying Central Services personnel professionally within the Commonwealth of Virginia. This is a not-for-profit association whose goal is to work as an advocate for the promotion of educational and professional growth to members and associates.
During the year, we offer seminars and vendor fairs with continuing educational value to Central Service personnel. Speakers are well known in our field of expertise, and the vendor shows offer an introduction to products and services to better support a fast paced, technical work environment. VACS seminars also are an opportunity for networking and sharing of good practices and ideas. With the increased emphasis on certification of Central Sterile Technicians, VACS sees itsí role as a promoter of professional advancement through continuing education opportunities and certification scholarship opportunities.
We strive to meet the needs of Central Service professionals to promote the status as technical professionals in a rapidly evolving field of health care. Please take this opportunity to learn about us as an association and of upcoming events. We hope you will find our services beneficial to your professional needs.
