Committees

Volunteers are at the heart of ASCRS’ existence. Collectively, they accomplish incredible work on behalf of the Society and specialty. ASCRS strives to assure a wide range of committee involvement opportunities for members.

Committee Members and Leadership Policies

On February 21, 2018, the Executive Council approved the Policy for Committee Membership to ensure each committee exemplifies diversity of experiences, competencies and demographics. On February 11, 2019, the Executive Council approved the Policy for the Selection and Responsibility for Committee Leadership within the ASCRS.

Conflict of Interest Management Committee

The Conflict of Interest Management Committee is responsible for development and management of ASCRS conflict of interest policies. This includes identifying and mitigating potential conflicts members may have while serving in leadership roles, determining processes used to review and mitigate COI for all educational activities offering CME credit, and defining triggers for committee review of potential conflicts. The committee will also develop procedures for determining consequences of members exceeding pre-defined COI limits relative to their eligibility to serve on ASCRS governance entities and/or participation in deliberations associated with their assignments.
