The officers and new Executive Board members were installed on November 7, 2006 during the ASC’s 54th Annual Scientific Meeting.  The ASC Executive Board is the general management of the American Society of Cytopathology.  The Board regularly performs the ordinary duties of a board of directors to appoint any Committee it may deem necessary and to delegate whatever powers necessary to the Committees.  Executive Board Members are elected to serve a four-year term on the Board. 

The ASC, founded in 1951, is a distinguished national professional society of physicians, cytotechnologists and scientists who are dedicated to the detection and early diagnosis of nearly all forms of cancer.  The ASC is the largest medical society solely devoted to recognizing cellular abnormalities in order to benefit patients. The majority of tests that the ASC Members interpret are Pap tests.  The ASC’s diverse membership of more than 3000 individuals includes representatives from other countries who share a vision of education, research and continuous improvement in the standards and quality of patient care.  The ASC is a unique society that provides a forum where physicians and cytotechnologists can interact and network with each other on both a personal and professional level.
