Nominating Committee

The ASTS Nominating Committee invites nominations from the membership for the 2020 positions of one Secretary (3-year term), three Councilor-at-Large positions (each to serve a 3-year term), and one Associate Councilor position (3-year term). The term of service will begin in June 2020.

All nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, December 2, 2019.

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.
