ACP's Governance Committee seeks Regent, Treasurer candidates for 2025

All candidates for Regent and Treasurer must declare their intent to become a candidate by Aug. 1, 2024.

The College Governance Committee, which oversees the process for nominating and electing MACPs and FACPs of the College to the Board of Regents (BOR), is beginning the process of seeking Regents to join the BOR in April 2025. The Treasurer position will also open in 2025.

The Governance Committee strives to represent the diversity within internal medicine on the BOR. Important general qualifications for Regents include commitment to ACP, dependability, leadership qualities, and the ability to represent the College in numerous and diverse arenas. Regent and Treasurer nominees must be either an FACP or MACP of the College.

Candidates for Treasurer do not need to be a current member of the BOR but will become one as Treasurer. The Treasurer is a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Regents and Chair of the Financial Policy and Audit Committee. Treasurer candidates should be experienced and/or comfortable with investments, pensions, and insurance and financial management issues; have proven leadership ability in order to guide the Financial Policy and Audit Committee toward effective decision making; be willing to devote the time necessary to become familiar with the College's financial policies and practices; have the ability to work with College management; and possess the ability to make financial matters and recommendations understandable to persons with little or no financial background.

All candidates for Regent and Treasurer must declare their intent to become a candidate by Aug. 1, 2024. Once declared, candidates will be provided with additional information about completing the nomination packet and submitting the following materials, no later than Sept. 1, 2024:

  • Three letters of recommendation (not from the candidate)
  • Biographical sketch
  • Personal statement (250-word maximum)
  • Response to standardized question
  • Current CV
  • Current photo (head shot preferred, at least 2" high, 300 dpi, color preferred)
  • Disclosure of interests submission
  • Agreement to adhere to the Council of Medical Speciality Societies' Code for Interactions with Companies

Letters of recommendation should describe the special attributes the candidate would bring to the BOR in terms of the desired characteristics outlined above. There are no specifications as to content or format, but letters will be most useful if they focus on the candidate's qualifications and how they would contribute to the BOR and College.

Please contact Executive Office staff at no later than Aug. 1, 2024, to declare your intent to be a candidate for Regent or Treasurer. Only candidates who declare their candidacy by Aug. 1 and complete their submission packet by Sept. 1 will be advanced to the Governance Committee for review.
