Applying for Leadership Positions
Applications for leadership opportunities are considered complete when all materials associated with applying for the position are received by the RFS by the posted deadline. The materials usually require (in addition to the application) a statement of interest, CV, and signed statement that the applicant has reviewed the AMA Conflict of Interest Policy and Principles. Incomplete applications may not be considered. The process of how these positions are filled varies depending on the position.
Access the AMA-RFS leadership guide for more information on AMA’s system of governance and policymaking process.
