Ad Hoc Committee on the Future Format of AAPM Meetings (AHFFM)

AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information

ChargeTo evaluate the benefits and limitations of both in-person and virtual meeting formats, and recommend the appropriate balance of formats for future AAPM meetings.  In particular, the committee will consider the impact of meeting format on:
  • The content of meetings in order to best meet the needs of our members
  • Revenues for the association
  • Issues related to online learning and MOC
  • Intangible elements of meetings, including personal interactions and the satisfaction of our member experience
  • Expanding attendance by those who cannot get away to attend a meeting in person
  • Expanding the ability of international attendees to participate
  • The needs of our vendor partners
  • Committee and governance meetings (e.g., Board meetings, Council meetings, committee meetings) that often occur simultaneously with in-person meetings
  • The fatigue of the volunteer pool involved in planning meetings
The committee should include the following considerations in its recommendations:
  • The potentially different learning styles favored by both younger and more senior physicists
  • The relative value of simultaneity of meeting content (as opposed to having asynchronous viewing not tied to a particular day or time)
