    As the NAACCR liaison to the American Joint Committee on Cancer, I would like to announce an

     Open Call for contributors for the AJCC 9th Edition.  Here is the letter from AJCC:


    November 7, 2019


    Dear Members of the AJCC Organization Community:


    In January 2020, the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) will embark upon the project to update the AJCC Cancer Staging System.  At this time, we are soliciting interest from across the oncology community to volunteer to participate in this process.


    The process will include rigorous vetting of the latest information from scientific research and peer-reviewed publications to form the basis of evidence to support changes to the Cancer Staging System and maintain the standard of excellence that the AJCC has established. The AJCC is seeking broad participation from across the disciplines and specialties in oncology to participate in the Expert Panels. The Expert Panels of the AJCC are the disease focused groups that collaboratively contribute to the authorships of the Cancer Staging System.


    Your interest will be reviewed by the Editorial Committee and Expert Panel Chairs and Leadership for consideration of your participation.


    Kindly respond to the on online survey via the link, below, for consideration on or before 29 November 2019.



    On behalf of the AJCC,
