Reminder FACR is a distinguished award and a level of ACR membership.  Candidates are required to submit 2022 membership dues before the March 31, 2022 grace period ends in order to continue to be eligible candidates for application review.

* If elected to become a Fellow, participation in the April 2023 convocation ceremony during the Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. is necessary for the award to be conferred. Approval may be deferred to a postdated convocation if deemed to need additional years of experience before the award can be conferred.*
