Elections and Bylaws Amendments
On this year's ballot, members will be asked to vote on proposed amendments to the ASBH Bylaws. The 2014-15 Governance Committee was charged with reviewing the bylaws, which were last amended in 2010, to ensure consistency with policy and current practice. At their April 2015 meeting, the ASBH Board of Directors approved the committee's recommendations for changes to the bylaws, which are now offered to the ASBH membership for approval in conjunction with the 2015 election.
CECA Seeks New Members
In the coming year, the Clinical Ethics Consultation Affairs (CECA) Committee will build on its recent release of the second edition of Improving Competencies in Clinical Ethics Consultation: An Education Guide.
New appointees will serve a one-year term that begins at the conclusion of the 2015 annual members meeting and is renewable for a total of no more than three years of continuous service.
Early Career Advisor Program
The ASBH Early Career Advisor Program gives individuals early in their careers in bioethics or the humanities the opportunity to present a paper or project to more experienced members of ASBH. There will be an opportunity for advisors and authors to discuss their project/paper in an hour and a half meeting in Houston. The expectation is that this discussion will assist early career members of ASBH to advance toward publication of a paper or completion of a project that is significant for their career. To be considered, submit an application form with an abstract of your paper/project by Friday, July 17.
