ASA Resident Component Governing Council
Residents with 18 months or more left in residency or fellowship are encouraged to apply for a governing council officer position. Of note, the President-Elect, Alternate Delegate to the AMA Resident and Fellow Section, and Junior Co-Editor are 2-year positions; this allows for one year of working closely with the senior officer before assuming full responsibilities. PGY-1, CA-1's and CA-2's are eligible, as are CA-3's pursuing a fellowship. The Secretary position is a 1-year position. We encourage you to review the description and duties of each position before applying.
Candidates must submit an application, a one-page summary of qualifications and platform statement, a CV (as a Word document), and a letter from the candidate’s anesthesia residency program director. The Junior Co-Editor candidate must also submit a 500- to 700-word writing sample on a topic of his or her choice. All materials are due by September 1, 2019.
Please note the candidate's residency program director should provide a strong letter of support. The program director's letter should clearly state the resident will have ample protected time to prepare for and attend all of the meetings and perform the responsibilities of each respective office. The duties and requirements are listed in the ASA Resident Component Bylaws.
View an example of a one-page summary of qualifications and platform statement.
All application materials will be provided to resident delegate members electronically, though the one-page document that summarizes your qualifications and platform is the only material that will be distributed in paper copy at the Resident Component House of Delegates meeting.
Nominations should be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to ASA, Attention: Resident Component, 1061 American Lane, Schaumburg, IL 60173-4973. Applications should be submitted by September 1, 2019. Candidates are encouraged to contact the current officers to discuss the duties and responsibilities and to ask any questions.
Residents interested in representing their state in the Resident Component House of Delegates should contact their state societies to determine what the process is for being elected or appointed to the ASA Resident Component House of Delegates.
