The ASCI is seeking nominations for vacancies on the 2015-2018 Council (all terms of office are three years): Vice President (which ascends to the Presidency in year three) and two Councilor positions.
All Council members are expected to support the activities of and attend the ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting, and to participate in the general governance of the Society, including conference calls and review of administrative and other issues. All Council members participate in the review of membership nominations. There are two in-person meetings of the Council: in the Fall (usually in November) and in the Spring, at the start of each year’s ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting.
The Vice President transitions to President-Elect in year two and President in year three. For the last two years of the term and an ex-officio fourth year, this member is expected to participate significantly in matters related to the ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting. In the Presidential year, the member convenes a face-to-face meeting and oversees related membership-nomination reviewing processes. The President works closely with the Association of American Physicians to create the ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting program, and the member presents the traditional Presidential Address at the meeting.
The Council is supported by an Executive Director and a Managing Director, who oversee the day-to-day operations of the Society and effect initiatives as directed by the Council.
Members who will be 55 or younger in 2018 are eligible for nomination. Nominations must be submitted by members online through November 14, 2014, and consist of a 250-word summary of accomplishments accompanied by an NIH-style brief biosketch (PDF only).
