AACP Election Nominations

AACP seeks qualified candidates for three important elected positions: President-elect for 2013–2014, Treasurer for 2013–2016 and Speaker of the House for 2013–2015.

AACP bylaws require the rotation between a dean and a faculty member for President on alternate years. This year we seek nominees for President-elect from active members of the Association holding dean, associate dean, assistant dean, or equivalent administrative titles. He or she will serve as the 2013–2014 President-elect, 2014–2015 President and 2015–2016 Immediate Past President. The Treasurer will chair the Finance and Investment Committees and serve on the Board of Directors from 2013 to 2016. Interested candidates may obtain more information by contacting Dr. Rodney A. Carter, chair of the AACP Nominating Committee, or Dr. Lucinda L. Maine.

Election of Speaker-elect will occur in Kissimmee during the 2012 Annual Meeting. The Speaker-elect serves one year (non-Board position) prior to assuming the duties of Speaker in July 2013. He or she will preside over the 2014 and 2015 House of Delegates. For more information, please contact Dr. Cynthia J. Boyle, AACP Speaker of the House, or Dr. Lucinda L. Maine.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of intent, not exceeding two pages, and curriculum vitae to Sandy Stutman by Wednesday, April 25 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

NOON
AACP has partnered with the Network to Overcome Obesity Now to bring the fight against adult obesity into the 21st Century. Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating obesity, safe and effective drug therapies provide adult patients with another option for treatment. NOON encourages patients and healthcare providers to engage in meaningful dialogue about which course of treatment best fits the individual patient’s needs. For more information about NOON, visit its Web site. If you are a medication researcher or subject matter expert in this area, please contact: S. Whitney Zatzkin.
