The Governing Council is the main policy-making body of the Society. It meets in person twice a year and by conference call when necessary. One of the primary functions of the Governing Council is to review the recommendations from Society committees (Strategic Planning, Symposium Planning, Professional Development and Membership and Chapter Development). In many instances, committee recommendations are the initial source for launching new educational programs and series, modifying membership policies and practices and setting future direction.
