WHAT IS ACRO
The American College of Radiation Oncology is the essential, professional society for success in the day-to-day practice of radiation oncology. Since 1990, ACRO has focused its attention on both the clinical and economic aspects of practicing radiation oncology. As a professional medical society of doctors representing a relatively small subspecialty, ACRO has led the effort to ensure appropriate reimbursement for clinical care and has provided services to help its members become better clinicians.
ACRO’s mission is to strive to ensure the highest quality care for radiation therapy patients and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and integration of science and technology into clinical practice.
The College is managed by a volunteer Board of Chancellors elected by the membership and guided by the By-laws. The Board consists of 11 elected Chancellors made up of the Chair, the President (Chair Elect), the Vice-President (President Elect), the Secretary-Treasurer, the three (3) Chairs of select ACRO Standing Committees (Governmental & Economic Affairs Committee, Standards Committee, and Membership Committee), and four (4) At-large members of the Board. The Board meets twice each year, at the Annual Meeting and at a mid-year meeting in October. The Executive Committee meets monthly by telephone conference call.
