State & Local Rheumatology Societies


The Affiliate Society Council (ASC) is a key component of the ACR. The ASC is one of the most important ways the ACR collaborates with state societies to work on issues confronting our members where they live and work. The Council is composed of designees from each state or local society affiliated with ACR. We encourage all ACR members to be active members of their state society.
