State Affiliate Council

The State Affiliate Council was established in January 2012 to serve as an advisory group to the Board of Directors of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (the “Society”) and now the Board of Directors of the Association for Clinical Oncology (the “Association”) on issues relating to the State and Regional Affiliates and their members. The Council collaborates with and supports effective communication between the ASCO Boards and its domestic membership. If you are a domestic ASCO member with questions or concerns related to the work of the Council, please contact us.

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 up to two voting representatives on the ASCO State Affiliate Council. Representatives serve as a bridge between the affiliate and ASCO. The Council meets each year in the spring and fall. Additionally, the State Affiliate Leadership Conference is held annually in the fall in conjunction with the State Affiliate Council meeting. Below are details for the remaining 2022 meeting dates. Invitations are sent out at least three months in advance.
