Governance and leadership


The Society of Interventional Radiology's (SIR) governance structure and process is designed to be responsive to SIR member wants, needs and trends; serves members and the professions efficiently and effectively; meets current and future governance challenges and is satisfying to those members who are involved in SIR governance activities.

SIR Leadership

The SIR Board of Directors is the chief governing and policymaking body of SIR made up of SIR’s member interventional radiologists. The SIR Board of Directors  is empowered to carry out the business of the society and is responsible for fiduciary oversight. It is responsible for overseeing and transacting the business necessary to achieve SIR's goals and to fulfill its mission. Board terms begin at the annual members' business meeting. The board meets in person three times per year.

SIR Foundation

SIR Foundation is a scientific foundation dedicated to fostering research in interventional radiology for the purposes of advancing scientific knowledge, increasing the number of skilled investigators and developing innovative therapies that lead to improved patient care and quality of life. The SIR Foundation Board of Directors works closely with the SIR Board of Directors to oversee and direct the execution of the jointly crafted SIR and SIR Foundation strategic plan, which serves to further the mission of both organizations.

SIR Bylaws

The SIR Bylaws serve as the association's constitution. They can only be amended by vote of the membership. They set forth the structure of the board of directors and the society and guide leadership in conducting business. The bylaws establish the major organizations structure of SIR: the board of directors, the executive committee, the officers, the standing committees and nominations process.
