Call for Council nominations, 2018

The Society is seeking nominations for the following vacancies on the ASCI Council (all terms begin and end in the spring): Vice President (4-year term, 2018-2022), Secretary-Treasurer-elect (3-year term, 2018-2021, with the first year served as a regular Councilor), and Councilor (3-year term, 2018-2021).

All Council members are expected to support the activities of and attend the ASCI annual meeting, and to participate in the general governance of the Society, including two in-person meetings (fall and spring, coordinate with the annual meeting), and conference calls (typically every other month). All Council members participate in the review of membership nominations.

The Vice President transitions to President-Elect in year 2 and President in year 3. For the 2nd through 4th years of this position, this member is expected to participate significantly in matters related to the Joint Meeting. In the Presidential year (year 3), the member convenes a face-to-face Council meeting and oversees related review processes for nominations, notably including those to membership. The President works closely with the Association of American Physicians to create the annual meeting program, and the member presents the traditional Presidential Address at the meeting. In year 4, the President transitions to Immediate Past President, serving as an advisor to the current President and with full Council responsibilities and privileges.

The Council is supported by an Executive Director, Managing Director, and other staff members who oversee the day-to-day operations of the Society and effect initiatives as directed by the Council. For details on Officers and Councilors, see the ASCI Bylaws.

Members who will be 55 or younger in 2021 are eligible for nomination. The Society encourages you to keep under consideration the importance of diversity among the Council. Nominations may be submitted online through January 17, 2018, at 11:59 PM EST and consist of a 250-word summary of accomplishments accompanied by an NIH-style brief biosketch (PDF only). If the nomination is intended for a specific vacancy, note this in the nomination comments.

Members must submit nominations through their member accounts. (Please note: Self-nomination is no longer available for Council nominations.)
