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.

Program Committee

The Program Committee is responsible for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the scientific program at the Annual Scientific Meeting. They ensure that all educational and training products reflect the Society's vision and mission without regard to outside influences and they develop, implement and sustain an integrated educational strategy for professionals.
