Sections

SIR Sections exist within the Society for members who share a special area of interest or stage of life. Sections cultivate ideas and develop programs within this special interest that improve patient care through image-guided therapy.

Purpose of SIR Sections

The purpose of SIR Sections is to:

  • Provide a forum for the exchange of information between members and the Society.
  • Provide a means for the Society to utilize the expertise of an identifiable group of members on specific issues.
  • Provide a forum for members with a special interest to speak as a unified group to the leadership of the Society.
  • Provide a pathway for professional leadership development within the organization.

Section Formation

A SIR Section may be created by the SIR Executive Council or at the request of membership. To apply for section status, a proposed section must submit documentation containing

  •  Prospective section objectives;
  • Description of the subject area that will be addressed by the section;
  • Description of how the establishment of a section will further the SIR’s ability to meet its mission;
  • Proposed first-year activities. If applicable, justification must be included on why the change in status from a committee to a section is warranted.
