Nominations for ASCI Council, 2023
The Society seeks nominations for the following ASCI Council vacancies arising in 2023 (all terms begin and end in the spring):
- Vice President (4-year term, 2023-2027)
- Councilor (two positions, each 3-year terms, 2023-2026)
Members who are in the Active category, and who do not turn 56 until 2027 or later, are eligible for nomination (self-nominations are not permitted). The Society strongly encourages members to consider diversity in identifying those suitable for nomination. Nominations may be submitted by any member and must be submitted by February 2, 2023, at 11:59 PM EST (extended from January 31).
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, with the spring meeting occurring as part of the annual meeting) and videoconference calls (typically every other month). All Council members participate in the review of membership and Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award nominations and subsequent discussion at the fall meeting.
The Vice President transitions to President-Elect in year 2, President in year 3, and Immediate Past President in year 4. For the 2nd through 4th years of this position, this member is expected to participate significantly in matters related to the annual 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 presents the traditional Presidential Address at the meeting.
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.
