Why Should I Join?

As representatives of nearly 2,000 Fellows, the Southern California Chapter, the largest and most active in the American College of Surgeons, has become a strong, relevant force representing both surgeons and surgical patients.

The Chapter believes meaningful ACS involvement begins on the local level. We invite all members of the ACS who reside in Southern California to join us in active membership.

Chapter leaders represent members in many ways at a time when medical practice is in great turmoil and under significant stress. To ensure that members’ voices continue to be heard, continued support of the Chapter is vital. 
SCCACS provides members with services unique to this area of the country – all for a relatively modest annual investment on your part. The Chapter also funds the cost of participation on various CMA legislative bodies and meetings by surgeons representing this region. 
Membership also provides the resources that the Chapter needs in order to continue to provide an outstanding annual Scientific Conference, financial support to surgical Residents to attend and participate in that meeting and to reward those who submit outstanding papers, and to carry out other activities of the Chapter.
