Participate in ACOG’s national election process by attending the National Officer Candidates Forum from 2 to 4 pm Wednesday in the Golden Gate A room at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel.
The Candidates Forum is open to all ACOG members. Light refreshments will be served.
The candidates for the positions of president elect, secretary, assistant secretary, fellow-at-large and young physician-at-large will present their qualifications, make a prepared statement, and answer questions developed by the National Committee on Nominations. After the Annual Meeting, Fellows will be able to view the list of candidates, the candidates’ photographs and one page summary of their CVs at acog.org.
ACOG promotes an environment of respect, fairness, integrity, and inclusiveness and encourages members who may not have been involved with ACOG before to apply or run for volunteer or leadership positions on the National, district, and section levels. In addition, ACOG is committed to enlisting and promoting talented volunteers and maximizing the diversity of our volunteers and leaders. Please view the ACOG Diversity Statement for Volunteer and Leadership Positions at acog.org.
If you cannot attend the Candidates Forum, attend your 2015 ACOG Annual District Meeting and discuss the candidates with your district officers and your district’s National Committee on Nominations representatives. Send comments to the committee about the candidates. Your comments will be taken into consideration and are always welcome.
