programmatic core. Sections allow members to join with colleagues with
similar interests as well as share information via websites,
newsletters, teleconferences and meetings. Members of ACR Sections enjoy
a wide array of programs, as well as opportunities for volunteer
leadership within ACR.
ACR's Chapters enable members to meet and share ideas with colleagues in their community and participate in activities that support their professional development.
