Officers will be elected from within the Academy membership. The officers (Chair, Vice-Chair, Chair-Elect), with the help of sub-committees (to be appointed by the officers), will plan and implement meetings, recognitions and programs; promote the Academy to all institutions with emergency medicine programs; schedule educational programs initiated by the Academy; and attend to other governance issues. Initially the term of Chair-Elect will be three years; the terms of Chair and Vice-Chair will be two years. Thereafter, all terms will be two years, non-renewable. (Terms may be adjusted by action of the Academy Distinguished Educators.)
Term of Membership
Status as a Distinguished Educator in the CORD Academy for Scholarship in Education in Emergency Medicine is for a five-year term. This term is renewable upon submission and acceptance of the Educator's Portfolio, by the Review Panel. The portfolio must show continued productivity equivalent to the original criteria in the same, or a different, chosen category.
Members submitting for re-appointment as a Distinguished Educator based on new accomplishments in the category used for initial membership must include in the nomination letter their new portfolio and a statement confirming that none of the substantiating evidence included in the current portfolio is the same evidence used in the portfolio for their previous membership award (i.e., begins after their induction or renewal or is different evidence). Applicants for re-appointment may also submit a portfolio based on scholarship representing a different impact category.
