2018 Call for Nominations
The ACR Resident and Fellow Section announces the opening of nominations for the 2018-2019 Resident and Fellow Section Leadership.
Are you frustrated by the political atmosphere and stress that last year’s election season placed on our lives, jobs, and relationships? Are you sitting at your reading station asking yourself, “How can I make a difference? How can I stop feeling like decisions are being made for me instead of by me?”
The call for nominations for the future 2018-2019 ACR Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) Leadership is now upon us, and there is no time like the present to get involved in making a difference. Join the ACR RFS Leadership for an instrumental opportunity to shape policies and provide input on how your current life as a radiology resident and your future life as a radiologist are shaped. Elections are held Saturday, May 19th at the ACR-RFS Annual Meeting, in conjunction with the ACR 2018 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., May 19-May 23, 2018.
The ACR RFS Nominating Committee is looking for impassioned and dedicated volunteers to join the RFS Executive Committee. Individuals who are recognized as leaders in their training programs, are eager to be involved in forming the policies and framework for the profession of radiology, or simply want their voices to be heard at a higher level are strongly encouraged to submit their nomination for consideration.
Candidates elected to the ACR RFS Executive Committee will be the voice for over 8,000 resident and fellow members of the College. The RFS is among the most robust sections of the College, boasting over 20 percent of the ACR’s membership, and presents its own set of challenges. Along with these challenges comes a unique opportunity to become involved in the developing policies and politics alongside the leadership of the American College of Radiology. We challenge you to become involved in the ACR RFS to strengthen our future as professionals in the field of radiology.
Nominations will open February 1 and close March 14, 2018.
We look forward to hearing from this year’s candidates and we wish you all a happy 2018.
