The ACG Board of Governors is one of the most unique aspects of the American College of Gastroenterology. Governors are ACG Fellows that are elected from the membership of a particular state or region. There are currently 77 Governors across seven different regions in the U.S. and abroad. The Board of Governors acts as a two-way conduit between College leadership and the membership at-large. This helps the College make certain it is meeting the evolving needs of the membership.

Feel free to use the link below in the "Contact Your Governor" box to let your Governor know of any issues affecting you or your practice, as it will help them help you! They're a great resource and your direct link to ACG.

New Podcast! ACG Practice Management Toolbox: Marketing Your Practice in the Digital Era

This week, we have the next installment in the ACG Practice Management Toolbox Podcast series. The podcast deals with "Marketing Your Practice in the Digital Era" and making sure you are using social media and the internet to the fullest extent possible to market your practice.

What is the Practice Management Toolbox?

Gastroenterologists in private practice find themselves working in a time of unprecedented transformation. Pressures are high as they make important management decisions that profoundly affect their business future, their private lives, and their ability to provide care to patients. The ACG Practice Management Committee has a mission to bring practicing colleagues together to explore solutions to overcome management challenges, to improve operations, enhance productivity, and support physician leadership. It was in this spirit that the Practice Management Toolbox was created.

The Toolbox is a series of short articles, written by practicing gastroenterologists, that provide members with easily accessible information to improve their practices. Each article covers an issue important to private practice gastroenterologists and physician-lead clinical practices.
