Fellow Election Call for Nominations: June 1st Deadline

You are officially invited to get involved, because your specialty and your patients need more advocates! The ACOG Executive Board recently voted to shorten the District and Section Fellow Officer terms from 3 to 2 years. In doing so, more Fellows will be afforded the opportunity to serve in leadership positions. The 2018 cycle will serve as our transition year into this new process. Roughly half of the Districts and Sections up for election will serve a 3-year term, and the other half will serve a 2-year term as delineated below (election rotation chart).
