Nominating Committee

The 2018 nominations period for ASTS Council positions is now open! Terms will begin in June 2018 for the following positions:
  • 3 councilors-at-large (3-year term)
  • 1 treasurer (3-year term)
  • 1 president-elect (1-year term)

Nominations must be submitted online by midnight on December 4, 2017, and members may nominate themselves or any active ASTS member by clicking here and filling out the submission form. For a nomination to be seriously considered, the nominee must be dedicated to the field of transplantation, have a strong interest in serving, and have a history of Society participation including, but not limited, to:

  • committee involvement
  • advocacy efforts
  • meeting development or involvement
  • education or training initiatives.

All nominees will be asked to complete a biography form outlining their service to ASTS, the transplant community as a whole, and their personal vision for the Society. Two letters of support from advocates of the nominee’s choosing are also required. The ASTS Nominating Committee will review all completed submissions and select the final ballot of 6 nominees for 3 councilor-at-large positions, 3 nominees for 1 treasurer, and 1 nominee for president-elect.

All nominees will be announced to membership in February 2018, and detailed biographical information for each candidate will be provided on ASTS.org. Eligible ASTS voting members will also be sent voting instructions in February, and the election results will be announced at the ASTS Annual Business Meeting held during ATC in Seattle in June 2018.

Mission Statement

The Nominating Committee consists of the ASTS President, two most recent Past Presidents, the president-elect, and the six most senior Councilors-at-Large. The Nominating Committee seeks recommendations from the general membership, carefully considers all nominees, and puts forward a ballot of three candidates for secretary or treasurer and six candidates for councilor-at-large. The regular membership of ASTS then votes for one secretary or treasurer and three councilors. Results of the election are announced at the annual member business meeting during the American Transplant Congress.

Committee Chair nominations are solicited from the membership and appointed by the ASTS president.
