Members

The ACVR Constitution Committee is composed of six ACVR members, with one member being an ACVR-RO diplomate. The term of membership is to be six years, with one member being replaced on the committee each year. Committee members will be appointed by the Chair of the ACVR Nominating Committee in consultation with the Chair of the ACVR Constitution Committee. The Chair will be selected by the Chair of the ACVR Nominating Committee in consultation with the ACVR Constitution Committee Chair. The Chair will serve up to two consecutive years. This may be during the last two years of a member’s term on the Constitution Committee, but can occur at another time during the six-year appointment. Effective in 2010, one member on the committee will be replaced each year. The order in which the current members will rotate off will be decided each year until all the current members have been replaced. All members appointed effective starting 2010 will serve for a six-year term. If a member of the ACVR Constitution Committee terminates their appointment on the committee prior to the end of the six-year appointment, a replacement will be identified by the Chair of the ACVR Nominating Committee to complete the term of the member that is to be replaced.
