Nominate a Board Member

Consider Becoming an AGS Board Member, Nominations due October 2, 2023

The AGS Board provides fiduciary oversight for the Society and works collaboratively with the CEO and staff to advance AGS priorities.  The Board is responsible for setting the strategic direction for the society, responding to emerging issues, interpreting the organization’s mission to the public, and establishing and maintaining programs relevant to the Society’s strategic vision.  AGS Board members typically will serve on one of the two standing Board Committees (Investment and Audit) and serve as a liaison to one of the AGS Standing Committees which meet two times a year. Other roles that AGS Board members may be asked to fulfill include:  (1) serving as spokesperson for the American Geriatrics Society; (2) serving as an expert liaison to external groups in areas where their interest, expertise and/or experience are a fit with the request from the external group; and (3) serving on ad hoc , committees/work groups of the Board that align with their interests and expertise.

Candidates for the AGS Board typically will have a record of service to the Society and a strong commitment to the AGS mission and vision for the future. AGS is currently seeking AGS member nominees to stand for election to the Board by the AGS membership. AGS is also looking for nominations for an ex officio seat with a preference for someone who can provide the perspective of AGS members who are primarily in clinical practice (this seat will be appointed by the Board upon a recommendation from the Nominating Committee).
