The 2012 Nominating Committee of the Fellows has the task of selecting nominees for the three Officer-Elect positions of the American College of Surgeons (ACS): President-Elect, First Vice-President-Elect, and Second Vice-President-Elect. The following guidelines are used by the Nominating Committee when reviewing the names of potential candidates for nomination as Officers of the College:
- Nominees must be loyal members of the College who have demonstrated outstanding integrity and medical statesmanship along with an unquestioned devotion to the highest principles of surgical practice.
- Nominees must have demonstrated leadership qualities that might be reflected by service and active participation on ACS committees or in other components of the College.
- The Nominating Committee recognizes the importance of achieving representation of all who practice surgery.
- The College encourages consideration of women and other underrepresented minorities.
Nominations should include a paragraph or two on the potential contributions each candidate can offer in terms of what he or she can do for the members of the College. Submit nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, February 29, 2012.
