Potential ACP Governor-elect Candidates

Nominations Due by April 14, 2022

(March 2022) As you know, the ACP national office is conducting a Governor-elect election for our chapter this year. The Local Nominations Committees will be responsible for identifying up to two candidates who are willing and able to serve a four-year term (April 2024 - April 2028), in addition to a year of training as Governor-elect (April 2023 - April 2024).

We are looking for a dynamic leader who exhibits integrity, shows commitment to the College and demonstrates dedication to the Chapter and the medical community. The successful candidate will work with Chapter members and with leaders in internal medicine at the national level. A Governor typically spends several hours per week on College Business with the support of executive administrative staff. Serving as an ACP Governor can be an extremely rewarding and life changing experience.

Idaho Chapter advocates for gender equity in medicine

(February 2021) The Women in Medicine Virtual Conference as part of the Chapter meeting was highly successful and raised the ongoing issue of how essential gender equity is in medicine. Jodie Donovan MD, FACP, Co-Chair of the WIM Committee, shared her thoughts: "One thing 2021 should highlight for all of us is ongoing support of gender equity in medicine. I think we can challenge ourselves to do more in Idaho by promoting and engaging women, especially minority women. The ACP has some specific recommendations that you can review here. One of these recommendations speaks to me - celebrate, honor, and support. Celebrate those positive examples and experiences. Find allies with experience. Be an ally with influence. Honor female leaders by promoting them to positions of leadership."
