The experience and expertise of ACR volunteers continues to be the ACR's greatest asset. The success of the ACR's programs and projects is directly linked to the tremendous efforts of its members who volunteer to serve their colleagues. The tremendous body of service from volunteers on a state chapter and College level is the key to the ongoing success of all the various areas of ACR involvement. While there is a general term limit of four years for College appointments on commissions and committees, many members serve longer by volunteering for different or new projects. The experience also prepares them for greater future responsibility. As with any organizational activity or business, the value of this experience is immeasurable.

The ACR continuously works to assess the ways in which members volunteer their time to the College and state chapters. ACR strives to create as many resources as possible to volunteers who operate inside and outside of the commission and committee structure.

The JACR encourages authors to contribute to the journal. The JACR aims to enhance the practice of diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, and medical physics by publishing important and practical articles on clinical practice, practice managment, health service research and policy, and education - all of which are topics not well addressed in other peer-reviewed journals in the field.

Researchers are encouraged to join the RTOG and participate in the future of national clinical trials research.  Members have access to RTOG protocols as well as treatment drugs and devices that are only available through the RTOG.  Membership is open to academic and community-based facilities.
