State/Regional Affiliates

The ASCO State/Regional Affiliate Program addresses the practical needs of practicing oncologists by offering a range of services to local oncology societies. The affiliate program includes 46 state or regional oncology groups. These groups benefit from the Society's expertise and guidance on ways to:

  • Strengthen their organizations
  • Improve policies and procedures
  • Enhance educational activities
  • Provide support for their members

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. If you have had leadership changes throughout the year, fill out the State Affiliate Council Contact form to ensure the roster stays up-to-date.
