Committee on Government Relations

Charge: The Committee on Government Relations will create and execute a government outreach strategy aligned with RSNA’s mission. The first charge of the committee will be to more narrowly refine the objectives of RSNA’s government outreach strategy. The committee may also engage in (but not be limited to): a) Establishing and developing relationships with key stakeholders; b) Developing an outreach program to initiate and foster these relationships; c) Amplifying radiology’s voice with key federal government stakeholders and promoting greater understanding of the value of radiology and biomedical imaging innovation; d) Familiarizing RSNA members with RSNA’s government outreach initiatives and equipping stakeholders with the necessary information, tools and resources to effectively communicate within their communities and with key decision-makers and to successfully apply for governmental contracts as appropriate; and e) Educating RSNA members about policymaking and federal agencies and empowering them with ways to become a voice for imaging throughout their careers.
