Review of Bylaws Regarding Membership
Review of ideas from AOE National Collaborative
Discussion of goals of UNC SOM AOE membership
The current process allows Department Chairs to nominate with a very high likelihood of acceptance. The chairs have been educated well on how to nominate and this seems to be working well. Though there may be advantages to a smaller size, overall the committee seems pleased with the current membership numbers. The large size allows for networking and broader faculty development.
- Departmental Representation
Currently these are the departments that appear not to be represented: Allied Health Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Microbiology & Immunology, Pharmacology, Nutrition (however, Dr. Chaney is listed here also), & Ophthalmology. We have the impression that Allied Health Sciences and Biomedical Engineering do not teach medical students. We will contact the other chairs to discuss how we can help them choose nominees.
- Requirements for membership
After the renewals this year we will develop more clear expectations for participation to maintain membership.

Discussion of leadership of process
There were no apparent volunteers to lead the process so Julie Byerley will, but others should feel free to name their interest if present. Your participation on the selection committee is appreciated.
Additionally, we discussed moving the process to the Fall, calling for members over the summer and having a banquet to kick off the year. That can be discussed for summer 2012, but we agreed we should proceed this year as expected.
