Improving Health Through Medical Physics
In 2019, the Ad Hoc Committee for Defining the Structure, Charges and Budget for 2020 of the International Committee (AHIC) had extensive discussions regarding a modified structure for international activities within the AAPM, especially whether these activities should be reorganized via an International Committee or an International Council. Leadership of that Ad Hoc Committee, which included many individuals who have been leaders in international medical physics activities, met with AAPM’s officers and executive director, as well as the chairs and vice chairs of all councils. It was the clear consensus of the assembled leadership that a new council, an International Council, should be formed. An Ad Hoc Committee on the Establishment of an International Council (AHEIC) developed a proposal regarding the structure and functions of the planned International Council.
