Governors 101: Building a Partnership

Presented by Betty A. Sanders, MBA, PMP, Senior Administrator, Board of Governors of the American College of Surgeons

Governors are a vital resource to your chapter. They have the ability to bring your concerns in front of the ACS leadership. With this webinar, you will understand what a Governor’s role is and learn how to collaborate with your Governor to strengthen your chapter’s grassroots efforts.

We will answer questions like:

  • What are the roles and responsibilities of an ACS Governor?
  • How are Governors nominated and re-elected and when do they take office?
  • Does a specialty society Governor represent my chapter?
  • What are ways to involve your Governor in your chapter?
  • What should I do if I never hear from my Governor?

This webinar also covers a new tool available to chapters: The Medical Student Toolkit.
