Board of Directors and President-Elect Nominations Now Open

Nominations for the CPDD Board of Directors and President-Elect are open through Friday, October 29 at 5:00pm CST.

Board of Directors (BOD):  There are four BOD positions to fill.  This is an outstanding way to serve the College and further its interests. Please consider nominating candidates who have served the College on committees and regularly attend the Annual Scientific Meeting. Those elected will begin a 4-year term immediately following the Annual Scientific Meeting in June of 2022. Except under unusual circumstances, nominees are members of the College. By long tradition, candidates for membership on the Board of Directors have been selected with the goal of ensuring that the Board will continue to reflect the broad diversity of its constituency. Representation of a broad range of scientific interests is crucial. Please click here to review the CPDD Board of Directors Standard Operating Procedures. 

One of the ways this diversity has been maintained has been to select nominees with areas of interest that are similar to those of departing Board members.  They include:

  • F. Ivy Carroll, Medicinal Chemistry
  • Ziva Cooper, Human Laboratory Research
  • Deborah Hasin, Epidemiology
  • Frances Levin, Clinical Research and Treatment Research

Former members of the Board of Directors who wish to be nominated must wait a minimum of three years since they last served on the Board.

Nominations must include a short biographical sketch (please obtain from the nominee or request that he/she submit themselves). 

The candidate must have agreed to being nominated and provided materials for the nomination. 

President-Elect:  A nominee must be a current member of the Board of Directors or have been a member of the Board or an officer within the last six years. The candidate who is elected will assume the office of President-Elect, and then President, and Past-President immediately following the Annual Scientific Meetings in June 2022, 2023, and 2024, respectively.

The candidate must have agreed to being nominated and provided materials for the nomination.
