The House of Delegates Steering Committee (HODSC) acts as an executive committee and conducts business during the interval between HOD meetings.
For delegates who want to shape the specialty as they gain leadership experience, the HOD Steering Committee is a perfect opportunity. Nominations for two-year terms of service open in early April 2022 and close in June 2022. After the nomination period closes, the HODSC Nominating Committee meets to review applicants’ qualifications and select the candidate slate, announced in July. Candidates not slated by the Nominating Committee can petition to be added to the elections ballot by submitting 20 delegate signatures using this form no later than September 8, 2022. The election is held during our hybrid fall meeting, October 8, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.
To apply for a 2022–2024 HOD Steering Committee position, please complete this form and upload your curriculum vitae no later than June 24, 2022. Steering Committee positions include: Speaker, Vice Speaker, Secretary, and Member-at-Large (there are currently four Member-at-Large positions).
