Call for Nominations to ASCA Board of Directors

Dear Members,

The Ambulatory Surgery Center Association is now accepting nominations for the Board of Directors, with terms of service starting May 16, 2015.

Having well-qualified individuals serve in leadership to guide ASCA is critical as our industry confronts today’s challenges. If you know of an individual who has the skills, experience and the commitment required to serve on the ASCA/ASCA Foundation Boards, please see if they are interested and, if so, nominate them. Self nominations are accepted.

In 2015, there are six openings on the ASCA Board, three of which are held by members eligible for a second term. The Board is committed to having appropriate representation from the various categories that compose the ASCA membership. Additionally, ASCA bylaws require that one of the six openings be filled by a physician. Based on the current composition of the Board, priority consideration this year will be given to corporate nominees to maintain an appropriate balance.

To nominate someone, complete the Call for Nominations Online Form (or download the PDF form) and return it by January 5, 2015 with the nominee’s resume, two letters of recommendation (with one preferably from a current ASCA Board member) and a statement describing the special expertise and qualities of that individual. A list of current Board members may be found on the ASCA web site.

Priority consideration for nominations will be given to those candidates who have served on ASCA/ASCA Foundation committees and/or State ASC Association boards or committees, have participated in state and national legislative grassroots activities and have contributed to state and national ASC political action committees.

For administrator candidates, priority will be given to those with the CASC credential or who are willing to secure it during their Board service.

When considering physician nominees, the Nominating Committee shall give preference to those with service on:

  • The Board or Committee of a national medical specialty society

  • The certification Board or Committee of the physician’s specialty

  • The Board or Committee of a state medical or specialty society

Board members serve on both the ASCA and ASCA Foundation Boards, attend at least three Board meetings per year, work with committees, participate in ASC activities, promote the ASC industry and work on a variety of strategic projects throughout the year. New Board members participate in a comprehensive orientation to prepare them for their Board role. To be eligible, individuals must be a designated representative of a Corporate Member, Facility Member or an ASC Supporter Member of ASCA. Please note: all nominees selected by the Nominating Committee will be subject to a standard background check before balloting will commence.

Please complete the form online or download and return it with a resume, reference letters and statement to Dee Bellfield via email to, via fax to 703.549.0976 or by mail to 1012 Cameron Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.

Thank you,

Bill Prentice
Chief Executive Officer
