The Arkansas Medical Society is now accepting candidate applications for District Trustees. The deadline is February 1, 2024. District Trustees are elected by AMS members in each of 10 geographic districts. Voting will take place from February 14 – March 1, 2024.

The Board of Trustees consists of the primary officers of the AMS and district trustees representing 10 geographic areas of the state. There are currently 36 district trustees, which can fluctuate based upon the number of AMS members in each district.

The Board of Trustees sets policy and is responsible for the business and financial affairs of the AMS. The Board meets quarterly with meetings generally lasting about 2 hours.

Terms are for two years, beginning Spring 2024, with a limit of four consecutive terms. Those elected will be notified after March 1 and will be installed at the Annual Membership Meeting held May 17-18, 2024, to be held at the Embassy Suites in Little Rock.
