As your Chapter's Vice-President and Membership Chair, I have
had the opportunity to work closely with your Governor to
strengthen our membership, scientific program, chapter health, and
ties with OSMA to better address the concerns of our internists.
Our endeavors have resulted in presentations to national leadership
recognizing our consistent success. On the National Membership
Committee, I have been able to represent our Chapter in the
College's membership management efforts including promoting College
As your Governor, I will augment our Chapter's continued
emphasis on education, professionalism, and policy. Changes in
healthcare delivery will require our Chapter leadership to advocate
for our Internists' interests. Changing licensure and maintenance
requirements affect internists and subspecialists of all
generations, and the College's role in education and representation
will be more important than ever. The culture of healthcare is
changing; our internists need ACP to be their voice, support, and
source of knowledge.
