How Can Members Learn About STFM Governance and Leadership Opportunities?

While there is no single pathway for selection for the STFM Board of Directors, generally, involvement in other leadership roles within the Society (previous Board service in a different role, committee chair, collaborative leader, task force participant, etc) is the most common way that individuals are selected for Board service. The committee considers many factors when selecting candidates, including current diversity on the STFM Board of Directors, level of leadership activity within STFM, current strategic priorities of the Board, and the talents and perspectives of the individuals being considered.

In addition, one of STFM’s core values is diversity, and we are intentional in being diverse about the composition of our governance structures in the broadest sense. To learn more about STFM Governance, watch the How to Become an STFM Leader video, and review list of leadership opportunities within STFM.

Election to Approve the Slate of Candidates opens on February 8

Eligible voters (STFM members except for fellows, residents, and students) received an email with information about how to vote for the slate of candidates on February 8. If you did not receive the email, contact Traci Brazelton at

Voting will close on February 26. The new members of the Board of Directors will be announced in the February 28 STFM Messenger and on the STFM website.
