The PCPI Nominations Subcommittee is responsible for establishing the criteria and evaluation process to identify organizational members for the PCPI's Board of Directors.

PCPI® Foundation Board Election

The election to fill three open seats on the PCPI® Foundation Board of Directors concluded April 18. Results will be announced soon.

Consistent with the requirements stated in the Bylaws, seats on the Board of Directors are held by member organizations. The term for each seat is three years except as noted below. Board terms are staggered to ensure that a core of experienced members are present on the Board at all times. The PCPI annual Board election is held August/September, with the Board year beginning in October and ending in October the following year. This was an out-of-cycle election to fill unexpected Board vacancies. Because this election will fill vacant Board seats with terms that began in October 2016, members elected to these seats will serve less than the full 2- or 3-year term. Board members are eligible to serve additional terms of three (3) years, with a maximum consecutive tenure of six (6) years. 

  • (1 seat) Healthcare Professional Organization – 2-year term (Oct 2016 to Oct 2018)
  • (1 seat) Medical Specialty Society – 2-year term (Oct 2016 to Oct 2018)
  • (1 seat) State Medical Society – 3-year term (Oct 2016 to Oct 2019)
  • (1 seat) Employer Organization – 2-year term (Oct 2016 to Oct 2018)

Additional responsibilities of the Board of Directors include, but are not limited to, strategic planning and monitoring, priority setting, financial stewardship, approval of dues, establishing committee structure, approving position statements, providing oversight of programs and committees and selecting officers. The Board of Directors will also approve subsequent changes to the By-Laws and policies.
