OAASC Remains Strong for 2020 – A Message from Your Association Chair

Earlier this week, members of the OAASC Executive Committee met with Randy Leffler’s business partners at Select Association Management in Columbus.  These association professionals – Heidi Moss, Nikki Glenn and Kam Yuricich – have been working alongside Randy over his 12 years as OAASC executive director and many of you have met them at our annual conferences over the past decade.

We had a great meeting on Tuesday and began working on a plan to ensure the exceptional services our members have received under Randy’s leadership continue without disruption.  The following is an update on numerous association activities for our membership as we kick off 2020.  We are committed to continuing our excellent service and want to assure our members that the association remains in good hands as we move forward. 


Chair:  Barb Draves, The Surgery Center
Vice Chair:  Deborah Bray, Tri- State Centers for Sight|
Secretary:  Sarah Paul, Dublin Surgery Center
Treasurer:  Tracy Peters, Mentor Surgery Center
Past Chair:  Victoria Caillet, Amsurg


There are many other association projects underway which we’ll be working on and providing updates in the coming weeks.  Those include on-going payer outreach discussions with the Ohio Association of Health Plan and Medicaid managed care plans, reimbursement discussions with BWC and the Ohio Department of Medicaid, the association’s reimbursement survey and a number of legislative initiatives including price transparency legislation (SB 198/HB 388), CRNA legislation (HB 224), Ohio Department of Health regulations, Annual Conference planning and possible 2020 member webinars and much more. 

As your association Chair, I want to assure you that we are focused on continuing to serve the needs of our members.  We appreciate our members on-going support of OAASC and the leadership from Select Association Management during this transition time in the wake of Randy’s passing.  In the coming weeks, please don’t hesitate to contact me at if you have any questions or concerns about OAASC’s services and member benefits.

Best regards,
