The Executive Committee carries out the business of the College between regular meetings of the Board of Chancellors. It is made up of the chair and the vice-chair of the Board of Chancellors, the president, the vice-president, the secretary-treasurer, the speaker and vice-speaker of the Council, and two additional chancellors.
The Board of Chancellors (BOC) is the executive body of the ACR and conducts its business and affairs in accordance with ACR bylaws. The BOC implements programs and activities to accomplish policy goals through commissions, committees and special task forces formed to work on specific issues and needs.
The ACR recognizes the importance of ACR chapters, which elect representatives (councilors) who meet annually at the Council meeting. The Council currently has 312 members representing ACR chapters, the branches of the military and other federal agencies, and radiology subspecialty societies and is assisted by the Council Steering Committee (CSC).
The CSC provides oversight of Council activities. It is representative generally of the entire Council based on diversity, geographic distribution, radiologic subspecialty, gender, and practice patterns. Council leadership and the CSC together provide communication pathways to and from the state chapters and interact with the BOC.

The awards will be presented at the ACR annual meeting on May 5, 2013 in Washington, DC.
