Council Chair Responsibilities and Election Process:
The chair of the Council is elected by the HCMS Executive Board from among three nominees, submitted by the Council. While the nominees do not have to be current HCMS members, once elected, the chair must be an HCMS member. The responsibilities of the Chair are:
Plan, attend and conduct two Council meetings per year;
Be installed as a member of the 2016 HCMS Executive Board at the HCMS/HAM Installation of Officers on Friday, January 22, 2016;
Represent the international and affiliated medical societies as a member of the HCMS Executive Board, the governing board for HCMS, for a one-year term; and
Attend the eight 2016 Executive Board meetings.
To familiarize the Executive Board members with the nominees, each candidate is to submit a statement (about 5 sentences) reflecting his/her background that will showcase the candidate’s qualifications for the position. The statements will be included with the ballots given to the HCMS Executive Board prior to the election.
A strong statement should include:
Current practice setting
Relevant leadership experience
Anything else that may be of interest to the Executive Board
