The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) manages 19 independent, non-profit state oncology societies that comprise the Oncology State Society Network.
Each society is a separate entity that strives to be the voice of oncology in that state. Each state society has its own set of bylaws, operating budget, tax identification number, Board of Directors, membership, and brand. The culture and climate of cancer care is unique to each state, and drives each societies’ efforts and activities.
All the state societies are managed by dedicated staff who provide leadership support and coordinate services. Because of the economies of scale presented by sharing highly qualified and talented staff who also work on behalf of ACCC, this unique arrangement provides state societies with an array of in-house services.
Benefits and services include:
Each of the ACCC-managed state societies is one of 36 Chapter Members of the Association of Community Cancer Centers and an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Each state society is represented on all major national oncology initiatives by both organizations.
