State & Regional Affiliates

The ASCO State/Regional Affiliate Program addresses the practical needs of practicing oncologists by offering a range of services to its State/Regional Affiliates (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 to their members

Each state/regional affiliate has two voting representatives on the ASCO State Affiliate Council. These representatives serve as a bridge between the affiliate and the Association. If your affiliate has experienced a recent leadership change, please fill out the State Affiliate Council Contact form to ensure the appropriate contacts are kept informed.
