AO CMF calls for applications for the position of the AO CMF International Board chair. The application period for this prestigious post will close on May 31, 2020.

The first term of office of the current AO CMF International Chair Gregorio Sánchez Aniceto, chair of the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre in Madrid, Spain, ends on June 30, 2021. Therefore, AO CMF will begin the election process for the position of the AO CMF International Board chair in July 2020 and invites candidates who fulfill the eligibility criteria to submit their applications by May 31, 2020, at 11:59 pm Central European Summer Time (CEST).

Eligibility criteria

To apply for this position, candidates must fulfill the requirements provided in the job description. Only current or former members of an official AO CMF board or commission are eligible.

Election process

Applications must be submitted by email to AO CMF's Executive Director, Erich Roethlisberger, at: erich.roethlisberger@aocmf.org by May 31, 2020, at 11:59 pm Central European Summer Time (CEST).

The AO CMF Nominating Committee will evaluate the applicants’ credentials and eligibility and establish a list of qualified candidates until June 24, 2020.

The list of qualified candidates will then be made available to the electorate which consists of:

  • Voting members of the AO CMF International Board
  • Voting members of any AO CMF Regional Board
  • Voting members of any AO CMF Global Commission
  • AO CMF members of the Assembly of Trustees (excluding honorary trustees)

Candidates running for election have no voting rights.

Members of the electorate will be invited to submit their votes (a single electronic vote by secret ballot) starting on July 11, 2020. Runoffs will take place and candidates with the least votes are eliminated in each round until one candidate has achieved more than 50 percent of all votes. If a candidate runs for a second term, and no other candidate applies for the position, a qualified majority of votes (75% +1) is necessary.

The successful candidate will be confirmed in December 2020 at the AO Foundation Board meeting. The elected chair is expected to assume the post in July 2021.
