Maine Chapter Receives 2020 Chapter Excellence Award
I am pleased to announce that our chapter is in receipt of the Gold Level of the 2020 Chapter Excellence Award! The award recognizes truly extraordinary chapters that surpass excellence in chapter management. We are in the company of 34 other outstanding chapters. In order to achieve the Gold Level of the Chapter Excellence Award, chapters must meet twenty-one Bronze criteria, fourteen Silver criteria and multiple Gold level activities. Criteria include such activities as holding a volunteerism/community service activity, holding multiple stand-alone meetings, having revenue sources outside of dues and meeting registration fees, implementing a strategic plan, implementing a formal recruitment and retention plan and measuring outcomes, conducting various activities for Medical Students, Residents and Early Career Physicians. I would like to extend a special thanks to those chapter members who assisted us in all of these endeavors! For their hard work and dedication, we received this award.

Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future Survey
Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future is a collaborative effort that brings together multiple stakeholders to envision a system that is responsive to the needs of those who rely on it and that is relevant, meaningful and of value to physicians.
This ‘Vision Initiative’ includes physicians, professional medical organizations, national specialty and state medical societies, hospitals and health systems, the general public and patients, and the 24 Member Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Together, they comprise a Commission that will lead the effort throughout 2018 and early 2019.
The Commission invites input from all stakeholders. By participating in a brief survey regarding the future of board certification, you will help inform the future of board certification. The survey will remain open for comment until April 30, 2018. We encourage you to complete the survey, if you have not done so already, and share it with your organizations and colleagues for them to participate as well.
