Board of Trustees

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 March 1, 2021. The AMS Board of Trustees meets quarterly for approximately two hours.

Terms are for two years with a limit of four consecutive terms beginning Spring 2021.  Winning candidates will be notified after March 1st and should be prepared to attend the first Board of Trustees meeting after the election.
