Call for Nominations

FOS to Elect new Regional Representatives for the Board of Directors in Region 1 & Region 2 

All applications are due to the FOS office by April 30, 2018.

FOS Members:


The Florida Orthopaedic Society has two pending vacancies on the Board of Directors for Regional Representatives due to term limits for those currently serving.  These are open seats since those currently serving are moving onto other positions on the Board.  The two Regions that will have elections prior to the 2018 Annual Meeting are Region 1 and Region 2

Region 1 – Panhandle – Includes the following Counties: Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Jackson, Washington, Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Wakulla, Gadsden, Leon, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Hamilton, Suwannee, Lafayette, and Dixie.

Region 2 - North Florida – Includes the following Counties: Levy, Gilchrist, Columbia, Alachua, Union, Baker, Nassau, Duval, Clay, Bradford, Putnam, St Johns, Flagler, Marion, Lake, Sumter, Volusia, Citrus, and Hernando.

Any FOS member in good standing with the association that practices in either region may apply to run for the Regional Representative position for their respective region. Applications are due by April 30, 2018 and instructions are included below.

Each Regional Representative can serve up to two 3-year terms on the Board of Directors.  They are designed to be a conduit for member engagement and communication between the Board of Directors and local members.


Regional Representatives are active voting members of the FOS Board and therefore attendance at FOS Board of Directors meetings is anticipated.  The FOS Board of Directors meets three times a year in person (AAOS Annual Meeting, FOS Annual Meeting, and FMA Annual Meeting) and has web conferences as necessary in between those meetings.   Please note that the FOS does not pay for travel expenses for Board Members to participate in these face-to-face meetings.


If you are interested in applying for either of the vacancies, please send an email to the FOS ( including a bio and a brief narrative on why you would be interested in representing the organization in this manner, your goals for pursuing the position, and what skills and experience you will bring to the job. Your narrative should be 200 words or less. Please note that the narrative will be included in the official election ballot that will be emailed to the membership and posted on the FOS website for the elections.

All applications are due to the FOS office by April 30, 2018.

Election Information: The FOS will conduct a regional election for these regional positions. Only FOS members practicing in those regions listed above are eligible to run for this position. Only FOS members practicing in those regions can vote in the election.  The election will be held in May. The election will be conducted electronically via email and the FOS website using secure survey data collection technology. Please pay attention to the narrative you will submit with your candidate application as this narrative will be posted on the ballot during the elections. This narrative will provide members some background information on your candidacy to assist as they vote.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
