Call for nominations for ACS Officers-Elect

The 2013 Nominating Committee of the Fellows (NCF) will select 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 NCF will use the following guidelines when considering potential candidates:

  • 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.
  • Members of the Nominating Committee recognize the importance of achieving representation of all who practice surgery.

The College encourages consideration of women and other under-represented minorities.

All nominations must include a letter of recommendation, a personal statement from the candidate detailing ACS service, and the name of one individual who can serve as a reference. In addition, nominating entities, such as surgical specialty societies, ACS Advisory Councils, and ACS chapters, must provide a description of their selection process and the total list of applicants reviewed. Any attempt to contact members of the NCF by a candidate or on behalf of a candidate will be viewed negatively and may result in disqualification. Applications submitted without the requested information will not be considered.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Thursday, February 28, 2013. Submit nominations to officerandbrnominations@facs.org. If you have questions, contact 312-202-5360.
