Thank you for agreeing to serve on an SPR Committee.
Among the Board’s highest priorities is for the committees to identify ways to use the Society’s available resources to serve the needs of our fellow members. If you are not already aware, many of the most innovative SPR projects in recent years emerged from member/committee suggestions. Several committees, have worked closely with our Web Editor, Dr. Ben Taragin to develop resource pages on the SPR website. Review the new “Specialties” button on the site for examples. Dr. Taragin will reach out to Committee chairs in the coming weeks to ask that each Chair identify a liaison to the Website Committee. If you are interested in serving in that role, express your wishes to your chair.
Terms of Committee service – there are two things we need you to do right away and one item you should understand.
- Be familiar with the ACR Code of Ethics statement and ACR PRACTICE PARAMETER ON THE PHYSICIAN EXPERT WITNESS IN RADIOLOGY AND RADIATION ONCOLOGY as endorsed by the SPR.
- Sign the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement. (If you are a member of multiple committees, and your answers will be the same for each committee, you may answer once for “All Committees.”)
- Understand: All statements and reports coming from Committee or Task Force deliberations must be submitted to and approved by the Board prior to dissemination outside of the committee. Committee and Task Force Chairs and Vice Chairs are not authorized to make statements on behalf of SPR. SPR’s authorized spokespersons are the President, the Board Chair and the Secretary.
