A Successful Society Requires Decisive Leadership

As with any volunteer organization, strong leadership is essential for success. During July of each year, the Pima County Medical Society Elections Committee meets to begin the task of recruiting officers, Board of Director, Board of Mediation, Resident and Student candidates.  Election ballots are then mailed to vote-eligible members. Winning candidates are announced at our December Board of Directors meeting.  Terms vary depending on the leadership position.

Members interested in playing a personal and more active role in the direction of the Society and organized medicine should seriously consider running for office.  If interested or have any questions, please contact Executive Director Dennis Carey at
