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 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 Council is a representative body that meets annually to establish policy. The Council currently has 343 members representing ACR chapters, qualifying subspecialty societies, military branches and other federal agencies. The Council is represented in between meetings by the Council Steering Committee (CSC).
Each year the ACR Council convenes with the primary purpose of debating and approving ACR policies. This activity is critical as these policies establish the priorities and practice parameters and technical standards covering a large variety of issues. All resolutions passed by the ACR Council in the last ten years are compiled in the ACR Digest of Council Actions, along with a historic chronology of actions.
