Leadership

Executive Committee:

Chapter Board of Directors meetings are held face to face twice a year, although additional conference calls may be scheduled as well. Trustees are expected to attend all meetings and communicate with constituents in their Districts regularly to advise of activity and seek input from members.

Specifically, Trustees and ACC Leaders Shall:

  1. Educate members about the value of Chapter and national membership, including specific results ACC yields for its’ members.
  2. Serve as a Key Contact in your District and assist members in contacting legislators and responding to “legislative alerts.” Enlist support for state legislative issues, which may affect cardiovascular practices. Contact Legislators with the Chapter’s position on legislation.
  3. Attend Chapter Annual Meetings and encourage members in your District to attend.
