ABMS flags deadline for Stakeholder Council nominations

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) has issued a reminder that it will accept nominations for its Stakeholder Council until August 30.

ABMS says that, “The role of the Stakeholder Council is to ensure that the ABMS Board of Directors makes decisions that are grounded in an understanding of the perspectives, concerns, and interests of multiple constituents and stakeholders who may be impacted by the work of ABMS. The Council is responsible for reviewing strategic initiatives, policies, certification program reviews, and pilot-program reports, and providing written recommendations to the ABMS Board of Directors. The Council may also proactively raise issues to be addressed by the ABMS Board of Directors.”

According to ABMS, "Members are expected to serve a three-year term and may be re-elected to serve one additional three-year term. The Stakeholder Council is expected to meet twice per year in Chicago and have several conference calls during the year. The first in-person meeting will be in 2019."
