Government Relations Committee

The Government Relations Committee reviews proposed regulations and legislation affecting the health physics community. At the request of the HPS president, an HPS Board member, or a Scientific and Public Issues Committee member, the Government Relations Committee will develop position statements or white papers on topical issues.

The Government Relations Program is described here.

The committee meets on an annual basis, typically at the HPS annual meeting. Potential committee members should be able to attend the annual meeting.

Volunteers must have a working knowledge of key issues currently facing radiation safety professionals and be able to articulate these sometimes technically complicated issues in easy-to-understand language.
