Community of Practice Executive Committee Elections: 2020-2021

Nominations accepted from February 10 through February 24, 2020, 11:59 pm Eastern

Nomination Form

Communities of Practice (COPs) are vital parts of the American Society of Transplantation (AST), providing education, networking, collaboration, and other resources for their members.

Each COP is governed by an Executive Committee (EC) elected by that COP’s members. The primary role of the EC is to define and plan COP initiatives and lead the COP.

Annual COP elections are an opportunity to become an active member of the AST. A position on a COP EC allows AST members to contribute to COP and AST initiatives and to lead colleagues within their specialty area. They are seen as subject matter experts in areas such as manuscripts, educational content and policy comments.

This year, we have 52 COP EC positions available so there are numerous opportunities to share your leadership skills.

Eligibility

  • COP Members must self-nominate to be considered for an EC position. Feel free to encourage potential leaders to nominate themselves.
  • To self-nominate for an EC position, you must be:
    • An AST member in good standing (new member as of December 31, 2019, or renewed membership for 2020 by December 31, 2019)
    • A current member of that COP
  • An individual may only be on the election ballot for one open position. Therefore, if an individual self-nominates for more than one position, he or she will be asked to choose one preferred position.
  • An Individual may not self-nominate for a position they have previously filled, with the exception of someone who has served less than half of a term to fill a vacancy.

Responsibilities

  • Review the committee position descriptions to become familiar with the responsibilities.
  • Elected officials’ terms will be effective June 4, 2020, immediately following the 2020 American Transplant Congress.

Elections and Voting

Voting will occur April 1 through April 14, 2020.
