Governance Committee seeks Regent, Treasurer candidates for 2019

All candidates for Regent and Treasurer must declare their intent to become a candidate by Aug. 1, 2018.


The Governance Committee oversees the process for nominating and electing Masters and Fellows of the College to the Board of Regents (BOR) and is beginning the process of seeking Regents to join the Board in April 2019. The Treasurer position will also open in 2019.

The Governance Committee strives to represent the diversity within internal medicine on ACP's BOR. Important general qualifications include commitment to ACP, dependability, leadership qualities, and the ability to represent the College in numerous and diverse arenas. Regent nominees must be Fellows or Masters of the College.

Candidates for Treasurer do not need to be a current member of the BOR but will become a member of the Board as Treasurer. The Treasurer is a member of the Executive Committee of the BOR and Chair of the Financial Policy and Audit Committee. Treasurer candidates should be experienced and/or comfortable with investments, pensions, 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, 2018. Once declared, candidates will be provided with additional information to complete the nomination packet and submit the following materials, no later than Sept. 1, 2018:

  • Three letters of recommendation (not from the candidate)
  • Biographical sketch
  • Personal statement (maximum 150 words or less)
  • Response to standardized questions
  • Current curriculum vitae
  • Current photo (head shot preferred)
  • Conflict of interest disclosure

Letters of recommendation should describe the special attributes the candidate would bring to the BOR in terms of the desired characteristics outlined above. Letters of recommendation do not need to have specific content or format but will be most useful if they focus on the candidate's qualifications and how he or she would contribute to the BOR and College.

Please contact Lauren Cruz no later than Aug, 1, 2018, 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.
