IDSA and HIVMA Board Elections Begin July 15

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email

On July 15, all voting members of IDSA and HIVMA will receive an electronic ballot via email for the IDSA and HIVMA Board elections. 

Process Will Advance Inclusion, Diversity, Access and Equity Goals

Elections for the IDSA and HIVMA Boards of Directors will begin July 15 using a process designed to ensure that the Society’s leadership represents the full diversity of its membership. Our definition of diversity is broad and includes race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, geographic location, type of practice setting or activity, such as clinical vs. nonclinical, and other factors.

Rooted in the Society’s principles of inclusion, diversity, access and equity, the slate-based election will provide members the opportunity to vote yay or nay on a group of highly qualified and diverse candidates recruited and vetted by IDSA’s and HIVMA’s Leadership Development Committees. This bylaws change was approved in 2020 and is evidence of IDSA’s position as one of the leading societies committed to the principles of IDA&E.

During a call for officer and director applications, which ran from April 8 to May 8, we received a significant number of applications for IDSA and HIVMA officer positions by actively recruiting members and being more transparent with the recruitment and review process. This process included the creation of a model representing the desired attributes of volunteers serving in various roles. The Leadership Development Committees were then charged with selecting the best candidates and a diverse group who could most effectively lead the Society and HIVMA.

On July 15, all voting members will receive via email an electronic ballot for both the IDSA and HIVMA elections with the subject line “2024 IDSA/HIVMA Elections.”
The IDSA section of the ballot includes one slate of candidates for five open positions — the vice president, the treasurer and three directors. The HIVMA section of the ballot includes one slate of candidates for four open positions — the vice chair and three director seats. Members are being asked to vote yes or no on each slate.
Biographical sketches and personal statements for the candidates are posted on this page and are also being provided via email.

Voting is open from July 15 through July 29 at 5 p.m. ET.

Thank you in advance for voting. Your participation is an important way to influence the future direction of IDSA and HIVMA.
