Nominating Committee Update

Lawrence G. Lenke, MD
Nominating Committee Chair

Lawrence G. Lenke, MD

The Nominating Committee is charged with recommending a slate of three Directors at Large to the SRS Board of Directors, a new member of the Fellowship Committee, and the Vice President for the Society who enters the Presidential Line. These charges are obviously very important and discussions and decisions are based on meritocracy, leadership skills and with full transparency at every step of the way. The recommended slate of new officers will be presented to the membership for voting at the first business meeting in Chicago, Illinois, USA this September at the 47th Annual Meeting and Course. The committee would like to thank SRS Executive Director, Tressa Goulding, CAE, CMP who has worked with members of the SRS staff to provide detailed documentation of the nominees past roles within the society, including committee assignments, meetings attended, papers presented, and other criteria utilized in the committee's important work. We have found this process to be very difficult because of the many highly qualified individuals nominated to these various leadership positions within the SRS, but we promise to make decisions that are in the best interests of the Society. The nominees proposed by our committee will be provided in a separate newsletter as to inform the membership of these proposed new leaders well in advance of the first business meeting in Chicago. We appreciate the opportunity to serve the Society in this most important capacity.

Committee Chair: Lawrence G. Lenke, MD Committee Members: Serena S. Hu, MD; Peter O. Newton, MD; Paul S. Sponseller, MD; Mark Weidenbaum, MD.
