AAPM&R Member Councils: Your Voice in Your Academy

Since their inception in January 2009, Member Councils have ignited member enthusiasm and participation in over 60% of Academy members.

Member Councils are not only your member communities to network and share best practices, they are your voice in your Academy. Council leaders are responsible for identifying the primary needs of the membership and for sharing that information with the Academy Board of Governors. Your Council leaders are working to put the best strategies in place to ensure dynamic communication between Academy members and the leadership.
