Nominees Sought for RSNA Board of Directors

RSNA’s Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for qualified candidates to serve in two director positions—one standing director and one at-large director—with terms beginning in December 2024.

Standing directors fulfill a seven-year term, serving as chair of the Board in the sixth year and as president in the seventh year. At-large directors serve a three-year term.

Members of the Board of Directors serve as liaisons to various committees and participate in five in-person Board meetings throughout the year.

RSNA’s Board of Directors is a highly skilled group of individuals committed to improving the future of radiology and advancing the Society’s mission. To help ensure inclusion of diverse perspectives and needed expertise, the Board is looking to add directors during this call for nominations who have experience and expertise in one or more of the following areas: scholarly publications; quality; public information and communications; and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Nominations are open from Feb. 1 through March 20 at 5 p.m. CT. The Nominating Committee will review the nominations and recommend a slate of candidates to the Board. Eligible members will vote on the final slate of candidates during the annual business meeting later this year.

To learn more about the nomination criteria and to nominate yourself or another candidate for an open position, visit RSNA.org/BOD-Nominations.

Registration Open for IHE North America Connectathon 2024

Registration is open for the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) North America Connectathon 2024 taking place at RSNA headquarters in Oak Brook, IL, Feb. 19-23.

This five-day event allows vendors to fine-tune product interoperability through real-time implementation testing of IHE profiles in a supervised and structured environment. Vendors complete months of development in minutes.

In addition to live testing, the IHE North America Connectathon will provide opportunities for networking and education and will help facilitate collaboration and support professional development among standards and health IT peers.

For more than 20 years, IHE Connectathons have been the trusted event for delivering interoperability in a noncompetitive environment among the leaders of suppliers and technology vendors. The results of testing performed at IHE Connectathons are recorded in the IHE Connectathon Results Database, which can be used to validate a vendor’s interoperability capabilities during competitive bidding and as a pathway toward certification and regulatory filings. It is also used to qualify vendors for participation in public demonstrations, including the RSNA Imaging AI in Practice Demonstration.
