Become Involved in the Faculty Section Executive Committee

Become a member of the Faculty Section Executive Committee! You have an opportunity to become involved with your colleagues and assist in developing improved methods for teaching and training in OMS predoctoral and postdoctoral education, as well as related disciplines and to ensure future supply of outstanding faculty for OMS residency programs. This year there is one position available: a six-year member-at-large term.

The Faculty Section Executive Committee is composed of a chair, chair-elect, secretary, program planner, assistant program planner, member-at-large, ad hoc predoctoral educator and fellowship director. All positions are elected for one-year terms and automatically ascend to the next highest office at the close of the annual section business meeting held during the AAOMS annual meeting. All members must be affiliated with programs accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.

NEW! This year all nominations for the OMS Faculty Section Executive Committee shall be submitted to AAOMS at least thirty (30) days prior to the Section meeting at the annual meeting. Each nominee shall provide a brief statement describing his or her interest in and qualifications for the position, a chronological listing of relevant work experience, and a summary of any service, publications, or other accomplishments related to educational leadership. These items will be available for review by voting members. Should no written platforms for elected positions of the Section be received 15 days prior to the annual meeting, the executive committee will nominate three (3) active members of the Section, prior to the Section annual meeting in San Diego. Nominations will be taken from the floor if accompanied with the appropriate documentation required above. All nominees must provide written acceptance of nomination in order to be included on the ballot.

Please note that voting for all officers will be by closed ballots. Each voter or designee will be given a ballot and can vote for only one nominee for each office being voted upon. The first candidate to receive a simple majority will be declared the winner. In the event that no candidate receives a simple majority, the candidate receiving the fewest votes will be eliminated from the ballot with this election process being repeated until a simple majority is achieved.

Any questions please contact Mary Allaire-Schnitzer. We look forward to seeing you in San Diego.
