Welcome all Virginia Sleep Professionals

 Since the VASM was created in 2008, much has been accomplished:


  • The Academy was formed and over 300 members from around the state have joined.
  • Excellent annual educational conference held annually.  The first conference was held in October 2009  in Charlottesville. The second annual VASM conference was expanded to a full day conference and was sold out!  It was held in October 2010 in Richmond and we had an excellent educational program with over two hundred attendees from all over the state. In October 2011, over 300 people attended the 3rd annual conference in Richmond.  Since then, we have consistently had almost 400 attendees at our conferences and it has been expanded to 1.5 days! 
  • A successful appeal was made to the Virginia Board of Health Professions for oversight of  licensure of polysomnographic technologists, an important step to ensure quality of care for patients undergoing sleep diagnostic testing in our state and to recognize and preserve the valuable service provided by sleep technologists.
  • Legislation was passed by Virginia lawmakers for polysomnographic technologist licensure. For further information, click here.
