Governance Committee seeks Regent candidates for 2014

From the June ACP Internist, copyright 2013 by the American College of Physicians

The Governance Committee oversees the process for nominating and electing Masters and Fellows of the College to the Board of Regents (BOR) and is beginning the process of seeking Regents to join the Board in May 2014.

The Governance Committee will strive to represent the diversity within Internal Medicine on ACP’s Board of Regents. Important general qualifications include commitment to ACP, dependability, leadership qualities, and the ability to represent the College in numerous and diverse arenas. Regent nominees must be Fellows or Masters of the College.

All candidates for Regent must submit a letter of nomination (not from the candidate) and two letters of support (from two individuals other than the nominator) by Aug. 1, 2013.

Letters of nomination should include the following sections:

  • brief description of the nominee’s current activities,
  • special attributes the candidate would bring to the BOR in terms of the desired characteristics outlined above,
  • previous and current service in College related activities,
  • service in organizations other than the College (medical and nonmedical),
  • identification of two individuals who will write letters of support for the candidate.

Letters of support do not need to have specific content or format but will be most useful if they focus on the candidate’s qualifications and how they would contribute to the BOR and College.

Please send your confidential nominations, no later than Aug. 1, 2013, to:

Governance Committee
