The Purpose of AAPM Committees

AAPM committees exist as defined by the AAPM bylaws or as created by the president. Each committee has a specific ongoing charge, which guides it efforts. Committee chairs and members are AAPM members, appointed annually by the incoming president. Active members may chair committees.

It is expected that committee chairs will guide the committee in directions that are consistent with the published charge. Any proposed change to a committee charge must be submitted to the AAPM Board of Directors for consideration. 

Affiliate members may co-chair committees with an Active member. Active, Affiliate, Scientific, International, Trainee, Resident, and Student members may serve on committees. Committees meet in person or via teleconference as needed. Committees may make recommendations to the board. Recommendations will be reviewed for alignment with Academy priorities and budget implications.

The Purpose of AAPM Task Forces

AAPM task forces are created by the president to complete a specific, defined task and are limited in duration. Task forces are disbanded when their work is complete. It is expected that task force chairs will guide the task force in directions that are consistent with the published charge.

Chairs and members are AAPM members, appointed by the president. Active members may chair task forces. Affiliate members may co-chair task forces with an Active member. 

Active, Affiliate, Scientific, International, Trainee, Resident, and Student members may serve on task forces. Task forces meet in person or via teleconference as needed. Task forces may make recommendations to the board. Recommendations will be reviewed for alignment with Academy priorities and budget implications.
