The ACMS Board of Directors:
Serving on the board can be a huge step in your career. The time commitment is manageable at four meetings a year (one per quarter). The purpose of the board is to advise the ACMS management team on the direction of the medical society. Your insight, expertise, and support can help us make meaningful changes. You are boots on the ground. You know what issues you face daily. We need your voice and perspective in our board room.
The ACMS Delegation:
The ACMS Delegation will also elect several members to serve as Delegates or Alternate Delegates for the PAMED House of Delegates. The 2024 dates for the House of Delegates are October 25-26, 2024. ACMS Delegates are elected for a term of two-years (and may not serve more than 3 consecutive terms). Alternate Delegates are elected for a one-year term and there is no limit to consecutive terms for Alternate Delegates. Applicants for a Delegate or Alternate Delegate position should be considerate that the ability and willingness to attend the House of Delegates in-person will be considered during the vetting process. In-person attendance will be encouraged.
