Nominations for the Council are now open. All nominations must be submitted via the online form by May 1, 2019.
All SCCM voting members are able to respond to the call for leadership and are encouraged to do so. Council terms are for three years and consist of both at-large and designated seats.
Designated seats have been created so that Council will always have input from the major specialties. Designated seats have been assigned to Anesthesiology, Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacology, Internal Medicine, Nursing, Pediatrics, Neuroscience, Emergency Medicine, and Surgery sections. An additional designated seat, to represent the other specialties, was established as the collective seat.
Election for designated seats is staggered, allowing for continuing the sustained experience and memory of Council deliberations as well as promoting fresh perspectives in the governance of the Society.
The Nominations Policy suggests that each section should nominate at least two and (usually) no more than three willing candidates to fill a designated seat. Nominations for the designated seats will also be entertained from the general membership. Nominations for the at-large seats can come from the sections or general membership.
Please let us know who among your colleagues is ready and willing to serve critical care at the Society leadership level. Self-nominations are welcomed. If you have any questions, please contact Diana Hughes, CAE.
