Membership of state-based clinical networks is evolving. In states where a funded clinical network exists the network manager and a stroke clinician will be invited to participate. In states and territories where there is no funded network, clinicians will be asked to take on representation. Recommendations regarding membership are made by the Co-Chairs of the ASC. Formal review of membership will be considered on an annual basis after consultation with ASC members.
