The call for officer and director applications for the IDSA Board of Directors is now open. We are seeking volunteers for the office of Vice President and three director positions, with terms beginning in October at the conclusion of IDWeek 2023.
Considerable weight will be given to past IDSA-related activity in selecting candidates for officer and director positions. Relevant leadership experience with similar national and international organizations will also be considered. In addition, the selection process will keep our goals of inclusion, diversity, access and equity top of mind. Our definition of diversity is broad and includes race, ethnicity, gender, age, work setting, geographic region, professional activity and key areas of expertise, among other factors.
This year, we are in particular need of full-time clinicians, clinical educators, early career professionals and basic and translational scientists. A broad and robust slate of volunteers ensures we have the diversity and expertise within our leadership that is critical for guiding our organization forward.
Applications are due no later than April 12. Please contact Chris Busky, IDSA CEO, or Archana Chatterjee, MD, PhD, FIDSA, chair of the Leadership Development Committee, with any questions about the application process.
