Membership & Fellowship: Executive Board Nominations for 2016-2017

Hal C. Lawrence, MD, Executive Vice President and CEO

Serving on the Executive Board is both an honor and a solemn commitment to our specialty and to the women that we serve.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is currently accepting candidates for the May 2016 to May 2017 term for the following national offices:

  • President-Elect
  • Secretary (three-year term)
  • Assistant Secretary (two-year term)
  •  Fellow-at-Large (two-year term)
  •  Young Physician-at-Large (three-year term)

The Fellow-at-Large position gives talented and committed ACOG Fellows who have no Executive Board experience (except for Fellows who have served only as Junior Fellow Advisory Council Chair) an opportunity to provide grassroots input as a member of the Executive Board. Fellow-at-Large candidates must have been a Fellow for more than eight years as of April 1, 2015.

The Young Physician-at-Large position is available only to members who have been a Fellow for eight or fewer years. The board includes two Fellow-at-Large positions and three Young Physician-at-Large positions on the board, and their terms are staggered.

ACOG recognizes that diversity and inclusiveness in volunteer and leadership positions strengthen the vitality of ACOG and are fundamental values of our organization. Please see my February 2015 letter, which outlines the procedures for Fellows seeking to attain a national office.
