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 involved in AST leadership. 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.

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, 2020, or renewed membership for 2021 by December 31, 2020)
    • 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 7, 2021, immediately following the 2021 American Transplant Congress.

Voting will occur from March 8 through March 29, 2021.
