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.

Young Surgeons Committee

The Young Surgeons Committee addresses concerns of young surgeons and encourages their active participation in the activities of the Society. The committee offers feedback to the Executive Council on programs that would benefit young surgeons and recommends the Traveling Fellow to the Executive Council.
