THANK YOU to all the Academy leaders and candidates for the support and energy you give to your profession – the Academy is only as strong as our wonderful volunteers! There will be many ways to be involved in the coming months – opportunities will be announced in upcoming issues of this Milestones newsletter.
The 2019 election this fall will bring the opportunity for 9 elected positions, including the President, 7 new Director positions over different specialty areas, and a Nominating Committee member. Per the vote at CSM 2019, the Director positions will be restructured to represent strategic plan specialty areas, rather than geographic regions.
A one-time special election will be held to transition the Board of Directors to this new format in Fall 2019. Directors will be elected into staggered terms, with all 7 non-officer Directors beginning their terms in 2020 and 2 Director first terms ending in 2021 (Academic & Clinical Education, Research), 3 Director first terms ending in 2022 (Professional Development, Practice, Member Communications & PR), and 2 Director first terms ending in 2023 (Advocacy, Leadership Development).
