MDCB Board of Director Nominations

 

Nominations are now being accepted for the five year MDCB Board of Directors term of service. MDCB is seeking qualified and dedicated individuals to serve on the board. Your input is crucial for ensuring the success of MDCB.

What are the qualifications for board service?

  • Be a CMD for a minimum of 3 years
  • Have a minimum of a BS degree
  • Be a current practicing dosimetrist

 

What's involved? 

  • CMD Board terms are 5 years in length.
  • The Board meets for two days, 3 times a year, in cities across the US and Canada.
  • At board meetings issues related to the administration of the certification exam, policy and strategic initiatives are considered.
  • Individual board members' knowledge and expertise are an important component during discussions. Each member should be prepared to discuss the issues at all meetings.
  • Each board member serves on one or more board committees: Executive, Eligibility, Ethics, Finance, Maintenance of Certification, Test Development or Leadership Development. Time commitment on each committee varies and may be up to 2 hours per week. Committee service is rotated annually.
  • Board members are required to submit 3 (three) exam items for each board meeting and will be awarded a maximum of 20 CE during the board term.
     

So why would you want to give your time and effort?

Quite simply, because you will be rewarded. The reward is not in funds, of course, but in other valuable currency:

  • Continuing education - learn from fellow board members from the oncology field, CMDs, Physicists and Radiation Oncologists.
  • Professional growth - gain new leadership skills that will augment your CV.
  • Interpersonal skills development - build both social and career relationships that will last for many years.
  • Pride in enhancing the profession- giving back to your community, your knowledge, expertise and time.
     

CMDs interested in board service or wish to nominate a fellow colleague can submit a completed application, and email it with a current CV, letter to the president indicating your service goals and two letters of recommendation to info@mdcb.org with the subject line "MDCB Board Nomination."

Deadline to submit your electronic application and accompanying documents is Thursday, February 1.

The MDCB Nominating Committee will interview qualified candidates. All candidates will be notified of the final board decision in early spring.

Thank you,

MDCB
