The RLI understands that encouraging members to become more active in their chapters and developing leaders are top priorities. The RLI supports these priorities and offers a variety of ways for chapters to present valuable leadership and professional development information and resources to their members.
RLI Speaker Program

RLI Chapter Scholarship Program
Over the past five years, 14 chapters have established RLI scholarship funds to support their members' leadership and career development.
By establishing a scholarship fund to provide financial assistance for residents, fellows and/or members-at-large to attend a variety of RLI programs, chapters are providing a leadership track for their chapter’s members. In doing so, chapters are investing in both their chapter’s future as well as radiologists in their state by ensuring there are strong leaders who are trained on how to effectively advocate locally on behalf of radiology. Additionally, it will help prepare them to step into key decision-making positions that will have a lasting and positive impact on the future of radiology.
A chapter RLI Scholarship Fund will:
- Prepare members for key leadership roles throughout their careers
- Highlight leadership as a priority to identify and attract prospective leaders
- Plan for seamless succession of key positions
- Provide a unique benefit to your members that sets your chapter apart from other professional societies
- Teach business and leadership skills
If interested in applying for a chapter scholarship, please contact your chapter representative for more information.

Resident-focused content for Virtual Chapter Meetings
Will your chapter host a virtual meeting in the coming months? If so, consider adding content geared toward residents developed by the Radiology Leadership Institute® (RLI). This career-development offering is based off the RLI Kickstart Your Career workshops and focuses on the transition from residency into fellowship/practice. The content is shared via pre-recorded lectures with options for a live Q&A and/or mock interview sessions. Curious? Direct questions to Jennifer Pendo
