AAPM&R Member Councils: Your Voice in Your Academy

Member Councils are not only your member communities, they are your voice in your Academy. Councils provide an opportunity for members who share clinical interests to network, collaborate, and exchange best practices.

Council leaders identify the primary needs of the membership and share that information with the Academy Board, putting best strategies in place to ensure dynamic communication between Academy members and the leadership.
