AAGP Board Member Responsibilities and Criteria
The MIT Board Member participates fully as a voting member of the board, though the criteria for nomination are commensurate with the experience level of a physician in training. In addition to regular board member responsibilities (outlined below), the MIT Board Member is asked to play a special role in representing MIT interests on the board. This includes activities such as: communicating information from the Board to MITs via email/listserv, articles in AAGP E-news, or other avenues; sharing MIT concerns with the Board during Board meetings and conference calls; and serving as a member of the Teaching and Training Committee.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall direction and vision for the organization and for ensuring the implementation of its goals and objectives. In order to effectively carry out its broad mandate, the Board relies on an administrative network which includes salaried staff, committee chairs and heads of specific task forces. The Board has one to two face-to-face meetings each year and teleconferences every other month. Members are expected to familiarize themselves with relevant organizational details and actively contribute to discussions that result in policy and operational initiatives.
Criteria for MIT Board Nomination
The AAGP would like to ensure that the diverse strengths and expertise needed to execute the organization’s objectives are represented on the Board. Applicants should possess one or more of the following attributes:
- demonstrated commitment to/involvement in AAGP or other professional organizations;
- the ability to work cooperatively; and
- experience within residency or fellowship showing strength in areas of patient care, teaching, research, and/or administration.
Additionally, it is desirable for the board to be professionally, ethnically, and gender diverse, representing the major constituents of AAGP members.
