SIR nominations process
The duty of the SIR Nominating Committee is to seek out and select the best candidates for the open positions on the SIR Executive Council and to work with interested individuals to develop their future leadership opportunities and skills. Each year the nominating committee carefully evaluates the nominations in the context of the current and future leadership needs of the society. SIR's needs change from year to year, and there are many qualified candidates who apply. For this reason, individuals may be nominated several times before they are selected as a candidate.
The annual nominations process is as follows.

SIR and SIR Foundation encourage members to apply to join one of the volunteer groups that fit your area of expertise or interest. Whether focused on clinical practice, education or advocacy, these groups offer you opportunities to influence the practice and study of medicine, network with colleagues in your field of expertise and participate in leadership activities of the society and SIR Foundation.Learn more
