Since an announcement was made in the April NEWSLETTER, 10 ASA members have declared their candidacies for elected offices. In August, the Candidates for Office page will be available on the ASA website at www.asahq.org/candidates/approve.
A member’s announcement of candidacy does not constitute a formal nomination to an office, nor is it a prerequisite for being nominated. Formal nominations are made from the floor of the House of Delegates at the first session, as prescribed by the ASA Bylaws (section 184.108.40.206). Those who have declared they are seeking office are:
Daniel J. Cole, M.D.
First Vice President
Jeffrey Plagenhoef, M.D.
Vice President for Professional Affairs
Stanley W. Stead, M.D., M.B.A.
Vice President for Scientific Affairs
Beverly K. Philip, M.D.
Linda J. Mason, M.D.
James D. Grant, M.D.
John F. Dombrowski, M.D.
