The MPS Nominations & Elections Committee invites recommendations and self-nominations for a two-year term on the MPS Council (board of directors equivalent) from any member in good standing. Council meets seven times per year and terms begin with the June 2022 meeting. A contested election will be held in March.
The MPS Council, Executive Committee and Community Psychiatry & Diversity Coalition continue the emphasis on the organization-wide priority of addressing social justice issues and structural racism. Members who are committed to these issues are specifically encouraged to consider running for Council.
Serving in MPS leadership can be very rewarding, enabling members to be a resource for information, education, networking, and advocacy. MPS Council members set and execute strategic priorities for the organization and help pave the way for improving psychiatric practice in Maryland. In turn, the experience helps expand their network, their understanding of psychiatry and their professional growth.
Please submit your name and a brief statement of interest by October 19 to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for this year.
