Call for 2022 and 2023 SMDM Annual Meeting Co-Chairs

The Annual Meeting Co-Chairs serve a vital role in helping to support and produce the Society’s Annual North American Meeting through developing the meeting program, selecting symposia topics, fundraising and coordinating other aspects of the meeting. The Co-Chairs are supported in their roles by PMA, our administrative management firm, our Executive Director, as well as SMDM’s Executive Committee, Board and numerous volunteers. The Society strives to have co-chairs with diverse backgrounds and perspectives so that we have representation from multiple disciplines, and also encourages non-US Members to consider participating to ensure the Society includes a global perspective in the scientific program.

The SMDM is looking for Co-Chairs to lead the 2022 Annual North American Meeting to be held October 17-20, 2022 in Chicago, IL, USA or the 2023 Annual North American Meeting to be held October 22–25, 2023 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. Please note that co-chairs need not be local to the meeting venue and we encourage individuals from any country to apply. If you would like more information or are interested in serving as a Meeting Co-Chair for either the 2022 or the 2023 Annual North American Meeting, please e-mail Diane Nickolson, SMDM Executive Director at with your interest, relevant experience, and reason for applying. We hope to receive your note of interest by July 17, 2020. Thank you.
