We are seeking nominations for candidates for all positions. The nominating committee will select a slate of candidates to run for the positions in the February election.

Nominees must be able to make a substantial commitment of time and energy. Our growing organization has much to accomplish in the near future to meet our organizational goals and member expectations, and depends on its board members to actively develop and lead key initiatives. Board members are expected to actively participate in governance and attend the board meetings at the annual meeting and the interim meeting in December. As a relatively new organization, board members cover their own expenses for attendance at these meetings.

Your statement of interest will be used by the nominating committee in its deliberations and will be provided to the membership with the ballot as part of the election process. Please prepare the statement with communication to both the nominating committee and voting membership in mind. Please share this communication with colleagues who may be interested in SASGOG membership or in service on the Board of Directors. 


2017 SASGOG Resident Reports

SASGOG was excited to sponsor five Resident Reporters at the SASGOG Annual Meeting and ACOG Scientific Session in San Diego California in May 2017. These five young resident physicians represent the future of SASGOG as they begin their careers as academic specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Through a generous grant from Hologic, the Resident Reporters attended the full day of the SASGOG Annual Meeting, where they actively participated in many interactive sessions. As part of their commitment to the program, each Reporter wrote a short essay related to the meeting’s theme of Academic Generalists Providing Comprehensive Women’s Health Care. We are pleased to post these essays on the SASGOG website, where they may spark interest in other residents who are considering careers as academic generalists and all that SASGOG has to offer them. Please take a few moments to read the reflections of the 2017 Reporters and share them.
