2019 - 2020 Councils and Committees

The nomination period is now closed.

The Board of Trustees, via its Committee on Nominations, is seeking recommendations for CMA member physicians who are interested in and willing to serve on its standing Councils and Subcommittees for 2019-2020.

All current appointments expire at the conclusion of the CMA House of Delegates in October 2019. New appointments will begin their terms at that time, with the new terms expiring at the conclusion of the 2020 House of Delegates.

Councils and committees meet as needed, with up to four (4) meetings per year via teleconference and potentially one (1) in-person meeting.


Please note that current members who are eligible for reappointment must submit an application for the 2019-2020 term. Even if you submitted an application last year and there are no changes, you must complete the new online form. The new form includes optional, but requested, information regarding diversity and demographics, per Board action.

Due to this requested personal demographic information, applicants are encouraged to fill out their own forms; however, applications submitted by a third-party are also acceptable. Applications may be submitted with or without endorsements, but if an endorsement has been made, it must be stated explicitly.

A candidate may only apply for three (3) Councils and/or Subcommittees. (Note: You may see a warning on the website once you have selected all three, but you will still be able to continue with the submission.)


The deadline for submission is 11:59pm on Friday, May 31, 2019.

All nominations must include:

  • Completed application form (Application closed)
  • CV (less than 5 pages)
  • Statement of Interest
