Meet Our Board

Our Board of Directors

Each fall, the nominating committee issues a call for applications based on core competencies required for the upcoming four-year term. The final slate of candidates is chosen based on each physician’s qualifications. The slate is brought before the membership in an online election the first quarter of each year.

Our Board of Directors is made up of experienced and credentialed physician leaders whose collective knowledge, skills and experiences support the mission, vision and values of the organization.
