ACR Chapter Meetings, Scholarships and Resources

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


Many ACR chapters have benefited from including RLI speakers at their chapter meetings. Our speakers know their “leadership stuff” and are anxious to share it with your members. Contact vgiannotti@acr.org to learn more.

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.
