Dianna Miller-Wilson launched the idea at our inaugural educational conference at Riverview Hospital in September 2006. With an overwhelming response to the concept of a statewide, professional sleep society, the Indiana Society of Sleep Professionals (ISSP) was born. The ISSP officially incorporated in June 2008 and obtained 501 (c) (6) tax exempt status in November 2009. In March 2010 we submitted a Request to Solicit AASM State Legislative Funding and received a $10,000.00 grant from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to aide in our pursuit of Indiana state licensure for Registered Sleep Technologist.
Through the great efforts of many, with monies earned at our educational summits and other fund raising efforts, we are now able to begin our licensure journey. In 2012, we signed an agreement with a legal team to represent us in our lobbying endeavors. Our strength is measured in numbers and we need the support of all active sleep professionals to continue our efforts. We urge you to join us!
