Nominations for the Nominating Committee

Nominations deadline has passed.

Consider influencing the future of the Society by running for election to the SPR Nominating Committee.  Each year, the responsibility of the Committee is to develop the slate of officers to be voted on by the Members. To nominate an SPR member (including yourself) to serve on the Nominating Committee (the committee that identifies the next leaders of the Society), Active Members are asked to submit this online nomination form and arrange for a second Active Member to submit a letter/e-mail of support sent to adavis@acr.org.  

Self-nomination for committee service is not only permitted but encouraged.  As you ponder who to put forward for consideration, please note:  Candidates who represent the same institution as the continuing elected Nominating Committee members (not including the chair) are not eligible for positions on the slate.  Click here to review the Nominating Committee roster.

The above criterion is being enforced in an effort to diversify the Nominating Committee and eliminate multiple recusals during its deliberations.  

Let your voice be heard; submit your nomination today!

Strain, who served as the SCORCH President from 2002-2004.  Dr. Strain was dedicated to educating and developing future leaders in the field of pediatric radiology.  The leadership and members of SCORCH are honored to pay homage to Dr. Strain through the SCORCH 2019 Leadership Scholarship.
