No entity has more influence over health care in Arkansas than the Arkansas Medical Society. If you are ready to take an active role in channeling that influence, consider running for the AMS Board of Trustees.
There are currently 38 District Trustees representing ten geographic areas of the state. Half of those positions are up for election/reelection every year. District Trustees are elected directly by AMS members in their respective district through a written and online ballot. Voting takes place from February 15 through February 28, 2019. The AMS Board of Trustees meets quarterly for approximately two hours.
Terms are for two years with a limit of four consecutive terms beginning April 2019. Winning candidates will be notified after March 1st and should be prepared to attend the AMS Annual Membership meeting on April 26th at the Doubletree Hotel in Little Rock.
