NCMS Elects New Board Member and Officers

At the North Carolina Medical Society Annual Meeting on Oct. 23-24 at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, Philip M. Brown, Jr., MD, a vascular surgeon from Wilmington, was elected to a three-year term on the NCMS Board of Directors as a representative of Region 1, which covers eastern North Carolina.

Paul R. G. Cunningham, MD, a general surgeon and Dean and Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Medical Affairs at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, has been an NCMS Board member since 2009, and now is NCMS President-Elect.

As a result of changes to the NCMS Constitution and Bylaws that were voted in at the meeting, which changed the governance structure from a House of Delegates model (see following Bulletin article) to one in which the Board of Directors are the policymaking entity, the speaker and vice speaker positions are no longer necessary. The Board members who held those positions, Palmer Edwards, MD, DFAPA, a psychiatrist in Winston-Salem, and John J. Meier, IV, MD, MBA, an internist and pediatrician in Raleigh, respectively, will now serve as Board Members-at-Large.

Congratulations to everyone in their new positions!
