The ACOG District XII Junior Fellows have welcomed new members to the council and have already started their work on a number of new endeavors. From now until the next ACOG District XII Annual District Meeting (ADM) in Orlando, we have a lot to look forward to, and we are hoping that as many Junior Fellows as possible will come along for the ride!
To ring in the holiday season, the Junior Fellows have been taking part in the gift of giving. After successfully raising funds for local Healthy Start Coalitions over the past two years, we attended check cutting ceremonies in three counties: Orange, Broward, and Palm Beach, during the months of November and December.
To start the New Year right, with 2016 being an electoral year, the Junior Fellows will bring their focus and learn more about the importance and process of legislative advocacy. On February 11, we will have our 2nd Annual Legislative Day in Orlando. This event will focus on education regarding legislative advocacy and implementation of advocacy locally. This will be followed in March by the opportunity to go to the Capitol and advocate at an even higher level at the Congressional Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
Springtime will shower us with the pleasant opportunity to return to Washington, D.C. for the 2016 ACOG Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting (ACSM) May 14–17. This meeting is always filled with many opportunities for both Fellows and Junior Fellows. A highlight of the ACSM for those preparing for their boards is always the Board Prep Session that is given every year by those who actually work for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Finally, we have already started preparing for the ACOG District XII 2016 ADM that will be held August 12–14. The Junior Fellows are planning for some new additions to the program. Our plans for next year will include a fun-filled Saturday that will begin with a Fun Run to once again raise funds for local Healthy Start Coalitions. This will be followed by another Junior Fellow Breakout Session that has been expanded to a half-day! Attendees can look forward to interesting speakers and sessions specifically aimed to helping Junior Fellows.
As you can see, we have much to anticipate! We will continue to keep you updated and hope as many as possible get involved! If you are interested in getting more involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, keep in mind that ACOG has many resources available for Junior Fellows on their website, as well as many awards throughout the year.
