State Affiliate Council

The State Affiliate Council was established in January 2012 to serve as an advisory group to ASCO’s Board of Directors on issues relating to ASCO’s State and Regional Affiliates and their members. The Council collaborates with and supports effective communication between the ASCO Board and ASCO’s domestic membership.

Specifically, the Council:

  • Identifies unaddressed needs and develops consensus for Board consideration
  • Disseminates information about ASCO’s public policy priorities to its membership
  • Responds to Board of Directors inquiries
  • Provides feedback to ASCO on draft policy statements

Each state/regional affiliate has a voting representative on the ASCO State Affiliate Council. This representative serves as a bridge between the affiliate and the Society.

The 2017 State Affiliate Council meeting will be held in conjunction with the State Affiliate Leadership Conference (see below for details) on October 9-10, 2017, at ASCO Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.

State Affiliate Leadership Conference

The annual State Affiliate Leadership Conference provides leaders of the State/Regional Affiliates with information and tools on how to strengthen their societies, enhance their current activities, and learn best practices. Attendees are provided with takeaway tools and resources for implementation.

ASCO is the host and sole sponsor of the State Affiliate Leadership Conference. The conference does not have industry sponsorship nor industry participation.
